Michaele Salahi: It’s very true! Even though D.C. is very diverse in some respects, there’s a style that’s dictated by the fact that this is a seat of power. Within the last three years, though, I’ve seen a change. You see it in suits, for example. You don’t just see black and brown and gray. You see people taking more risks with color — which I really like. SL: Does that mean we see less cleavage from the D.C. Housewives, than say, Atlanta or Jersey? MS: Big decisions are made here [in D.C.]. If you’re going to watch a law being made, there’s a way to dress. Maybe we might show more at happy hour or if we are going out for the night, but in general, we are a little more discreet. SL: So who is the most stylish Real Housewife in D.C.? MS: Myself! My mother is going to tell me I shouldn’t have said that, but you know why I say that? The Washington Post just called me the Commander in Chic. I dress with impact whether it’s a suit or a dress or a night-on-the-town look. I embrace fashion
