Unbelievable: How Much Do You Think Cindy McCain's RNC Outfit Cost?

Editor's note: We had an impromptu guess-a-thon here in the AlterNet office and no one was even close. Laura Bush had the good sense to rock duds only costing somewhere between $3,425 to $4,325 ... but Cindy ... well it's just ridiculous.


Vanity Fair does the numbers on the "banana look" so you don't have to :


Cindy McCain

Oscar de la Renta dress: $3,000

Chanel J12 White Ceramic Watch: $4,500

Three-carat diamond earrings: $280,000

Four-strand pearl necklace: $11,000–$25,000

Shoes, designer unknown: $600

Total: Between $299,100 and $313,100
