The Whitechapel Husting’s provided a plethora of monochromatic style; whilst most candidates’ attire was disappointingly average, these promising candidates styling really stood out either for all the right or horrifically wrong reasons: we truly hope more will pull out all the style stops for Mile End.
A* Paddy Ford
In an evening filled with an excessive amount of mundane monochrome looks it was Paddy’s that stood out. He paired his perfectly tailored suit with a crisp white shirt, accessorising his look with a black tie featuring cute white polka dots. While the dapper suit assisted him in conveying his commitment to the exciting and inspiring proposals within his manifesto, his tie only further conveyed Paddy as an innovative candidate for the Presidential role. Let’s hope that his generous proposal to cut his wage in half in order to create ten Presidential Scholarships won’t be at the detriment of his wardrobe.
A Charmile Chandrakumar
Another candidate choosing to convey their sincerity and competency through the selection of a smart look was Barts and The London Faculty Representative (Pre-Clinical) candidate Charmile. She epitomised chic in her matching blazer and pencil skirt combo. Through leaving her blazer undone, wearing some cute black ballet flats and selecting a patterned monochrome tee she radiated a natural and effortless confidence.
B Gwenyth Jansen
This girl has hair to die for, think Guinevere and you’re half way there. It looked especially spectacular last night, so much so that not a single question was asked of the only candidate for RAG Officer, we were all utterly mesmerised. I couldn’t even tell you what she was wearing, my editor next to me was too transfixed by her accent to type anything about what she said. We can’t wait to follow this girl’s accomplishments and expect nothing less than world domination from hair so entrancing.
C James Grant
Whilst I appreciate those adhering to Summer’s biggest trend it wouldn’t hurt to be more creative with your styling. A white shirt layered under a black jumper isn’t original (yes Siobhan Banful I’m looking at you). James provided the exact edge I was looking for with this seemingly restrictive trend, the left pocket of his otherwise drab black jumper was an abundance of colour: it brought meaning and a sense of cool to the otherwise lacklustre VP Education candidate attire. We hope to see much more of James’ jumper collection in the near future as after being up there for so long I, at least, have acquired quite a soft spot for him.
D Ollie Trampleasure and Russell Donovan
Taking casual to the next level with the “we’ve got an important medical exam tomorrow” look, these boys communicated their priorities effectually. Through giving precedence to their impending examination over a more Paddy Ford-esque outfit the VP London and VP Barts candidates’ casual tee’s and dark denim look pronounced their proficiency. Good job lads.
E Nazim Shah
As the only candidate for the Dental Society President, Nazim wasn’t required to project much of an impression which is the only reason I can fathom why he elected to wear such an atrocious outfit, that or he got dressed in the dark. Combining a repulsive mustard suede shirt with a pair of oxblood chinos and finishing off the dreadful look with a pair of smart black pointed shoes we were left flabbergasted by every single one of his fashion choices. We’re thankful that we won’t be having to hear another extended 10-minute speech on his worldly experience at Mile End.
F Sam Doherty
It was pretty evident that the whole room was on the same page, what the hell was this poor guy wearing?! Sam’s hideously cheap looking grey and black patterned onesie accentuated with green ‘militant’ face paint was definitely the worst possible combination. His attire completely marred his credibility, resulting in him having to endure ridiculing questions – only elucidating the significance of appropriate clothing at such an event. However despite this immense fashion faux pas, Sam actually had the decency to turn up to the event so kudos to the kid on that at least.
