The uniforms of female Senate pages are not up to the standards of fashion expert Tim Gunn. The co-host of "Project Runway," and now the spinoff "Project Runway Juniors," wanted one of the challenges in the show to be fixing their uniforms.
But even though female pages are wearing men’s clothes, Congress “refused” to let the show take this on, Gunn told the Daily Mail . He added, “And do you want to know why? They say that they don't want to sexualize the girls. How insulting is that? Can you imagine?” Gunn brought up the uniforms in his 2013 book, “Tim Gunn's Fashion Bible.” He writes that he made a visit to Capitol Hill in 2010 and a teenage girl approached him, asking for his opinion on her clothes. He knew she was a Senate page, he writes, and asked her what she thought of her own outfit.
