Since her husband’s death in 2010, Argentinian President Cristina Elisabet Fernandez de Kirchner has worn a different black outfit every day.
Kirchner is the 55th President of Argentina. Her late husband, Nestor Kirchner, was president before her. She is the first woman president to be elected and reelected in Argentina, although the second woman president there. The first, Isabel Martinez de Peron, was vice president and only became president due to the previous one’s death.
Kirchner’s presidency is also notable because it is the first time in Argentine history where a president was replaced by his spouse by election. Kirchner’s presidency had been scrutinized because some felt, prior to her husband’s death, the country was being run by a diarchy. More criticism has come from her excessive spending on clothing, jewelry, and shoes.
She has never worn the same outfit twice, and has even been criticized for arriving late due to taking too long to choose an outfit. Since her husband’s death, she has only worn black clothing, but has still not reused a single outfit in that entire time.
According to Perfil Weekly Newspaper, she has worn more than two hundred completely separate black outfits (that is, outfits without any common pieces).
