In rare thinner days, Millard Fillmore, the 13th president poses for this lovely Valentines Doily. Twofer Tuesday - Presidents in Drag!!!!
Bonnets were apparently ALL the rage in the early 1800s…. Andrew Jackson, 1829.
And Martin Van Buren! Looking… rather dour in drag… Sadly, 1837.
Perhaps white isn’t his color? Though he did make a nice choice with that whig, I mean wig! WIG.
Andrew Jackson with gun, 1829…. A formidable fallacious female….
In 1817, James Monroe got freaky on a friday too… Little did he know he was channeling Cruella Deville
A LITTLE KNOWN FACT ABOUT JAMES MADISON: In 1809 he was the FIRST PRESIDENT to introduce a lil’ lipstick n’ liner to the secret order of Official Presidential Drag Getup.
John Adams prefers a bonnet in this rare portrait… Stunning, gracious, stylistic.
