Who is worried about their image?

Celia Wade Brown has criticised those questioning her election photo touch-up.

She said “The focus on women’s appearance instead of campaign policies is interesting,”

If Celia Wade-Brown did not care about this particular woman’s appearance, she would not have got a good photo done. She might have instead used the time spent on make-up, lighting and posing, coming up with new policy, or talking with voters.

The reality of politics is that people judge you on many different levels. You need to tend to each one. There’s nothing wrong with making sure you look your best.

Therefore, a far less defensive, and reasonable response to the question would be:

“I care about my appearance, but I care even more about how this city looks to its citizens – which is why they should vote for me this election.”
