Yet another costume – and once more, it’s the 1950s

The Spouse of the Prime Minister’s dressing-up outfits don’t look like clothes. They look like costumes. She doesn’t wear them, but they wear her.

Right now, it’s obviously the 1950s, because everything she has worn since the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting began is straight out of that miserable decade. She has received a lot of comments on Facebook from people like her, telling she looks terrific and “you make us proud”. And that is exactly why she should be worried.

The only thing that’s missing from this costume is a little black veil on the front of that hat, and some neat gloves. Looks like somebody is living out a fantasy. And it needn’t even be Mrs Muscat herself. I rather suspect she’s got some male ‘dress designer’ whose idea of ‘eleganti’ this is.

She’s only 41 or 42 and the way she dresses and does her hair, she looks 10 years older.
