Things We Saw Today: Senator Kyrsten Sinema’s Awesome Wigs Are Joy

Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema has been a fashion icon since she took office. The first openly bisexual senator’s bold dresses, coats, signature glasses and coiffed blonde hair prove that being a Senator doesn’t mean you can’t look fabulous and express yourself. But lately, she’s been using her look to make a point about social distancing and keeping away from salons. And she’s done that with some awesome wigs.

Sinema first showed up on the Senate floor in a lavender-pink wig in May. She wore it to make the point that no one needed to go to a salon and risk spreading COVID-19. And it looked pretty snazzy too!

But the Senator wasn’t done (much like coronavirus!). She’s kept it up, and today she was seen rocking a new wig with a particular hue.

This, suffice it to say, got some reactions from the twittersphere.


You keep being your fabulous self, Senator, if only for how much it annoys the old, crusty white guys.
