Heads of state have many obligations, what with the balancing of budgets, the quelling of insurgents and just generally gallivanting about the world. This flurry of activity begs the question: What to wear?
Chantal Biya, the so-fabulous-it-hurts First Lady of Camerooooooooooooon, has the answer. Meeting the Pope? Contrasting black shroud with hair piled high to the heavens. Havig a kiki with Michelle Obama? Fuchsia pantsuit with a mullet. Going to the laundromat? Full face. Hell, waking up in the morning: full face.
Like much of Africa, Cameroon has criminalized homosexuality, which is ironic considering their first lady is basically a drag queen.
With Chantal and her hubby, Cameroonian president Paul Biya, in D.C. for the Africa summit, let’s take a look at La Biya’s ridiculously epic eleganza.
Now I finally see the wellspring of Bebe Zahara Benet’s fierceness.
