Be gone Michelle Obama. Eat your heart out Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. Cameroon's First Lady Chantal Biya surely has to take the prize as the most fashion-tastic political wife. Just look at that Tina Turner homage hairstyle, so famous in Cameroon it's even got a name: the banana. Take note of the three Chanel bags she rotated in one day of the African First Ladies Health Summit. And as if you needed more evidence, check out the wedding cake-sized pink and white hat adorned with crosses she wore to meet the Pope last year. Yes, the Pope. A former beauty pageant winner, Her Excellency Chantal Biya – the second wife of President Paul Biya of Cameroon - is notorious for never wearing the same outfit twice and is a fashion role model in the West African country. Oh, we'd love to see her supporters stampede to match that hat. [Telegraph]
