在14日晚的澳大利亚国会记者团仲冬舞会上,外交部长毕晓普(Julie Bishop)身着一袭Rachel Gilbert设计的奢华银紫色晚礼服,惊艳全场。然而,有好事者挖出这条礼裙的售价高达3.2万澳元,引发网友鞭挞。

一年一度的仲冬舞会是一项高雅的慈善活动,也是澳大利亚的政坛精英们绽放个人光彩与魅力的良机,而在今年的舞会上,毕晓普选择的一袭高领拖地长裙吸引了时尚界人士的眼球,他们更注意到这件Rachel Gilbert名牌礼裙价格不菲。

“这不就差不多是澳大利亚的法定最低年薪吗?”一名女网友在推特(Twitter)上质问,其他人也认为,作为一名领取纳税人薪资的政府官员,毕晓普的礼裙实在过于昂贵。

“首先,这件礼裙的$$(价格)真的太离谱了;第二,这也太虚荣了;第三,穿这样出席慈善晚宴,品味糟透了;第四,根本就不高雅。”另一名网友严词抨击。

Australia's political elite had the chance to indulge in glitz and glamour at the elegant charity event, but Ms Bishop's high-necked, floor-length gown caught the eye of fashion finders who noticed the Rachel Gilbert design's exorbitant price

其他社交媒体用户批评外长似乎与深受生活成本压力与薪资增长停滞困扰的普通澳人“脱节了”。

一名男网友语带讽刺地说:“谁说政客跟普通民众脱节啦?穿着一条3.2万元的礼裙,不正恰好说明茱莉(毕晓普)与普罗大众站在一起吗?”

毕晓普一向以喜爱奢衣华服闻名,她的时尚品味也多次成为媒体报道的焦点。仲冬舞会是澳大利亚政坛首屈一指的社交活动,各党政客都会携带如花美眷,盛装打扮出席。

今年,一族党党魁韩珊大胆身着一袭侧边开叉的深紫色连衣裙,配银色高跟鞋。反对党党魁肖顿的太太克洛艾(Chloe)也敏锐地抓住了紫色风潮,选择了一袭紫红色露肩曳地长裙,搭配银色泪滴状耳环。谭保总理的夫人露西(Lucy)则选择了较为保守的打扮,以白色上衣加珠绣半身裙搭配潇洒的黑色西装。
