From our menswear blog, Brandish, Jason Dike writes...

The Barack Obama bandwagon grows by the second, with Donatella Versace dedicating her spring/summer 2009 collection to him. Versace stated that Obama's style is for "a relaxed man who doesn't need to flex muscles to show he has power." However, Obama will probably just thank Versace and move on, because he has already been slated for being a 'GQ candidate'.

The thinking behind that slur is ridiculous, as it insinuates that spending time on your appearance has to be to the detriment of other characteristics. This also shows just how famous Obama is right now, with a world renowned designer using his name to garner some press attention.
