Sarah Palin got slammed on Twitter for the sparkly white mini-dress she wore to the “SNL 40th Anniversary Celebration” on Feb. 15.
Palin, 51, was widely criticized for trying to look too young and for looking “trampy” and cheap.
“Sarah Palin is wearing a.. sort of.. trampy outfit on the red carpet,” one Twitter user wrote. Another commented, “Palin looks like a 50 year old trying to look 25 in that dress.”
Palin wore the same white dress her 24-year-old daughter, Bristol, had donned at the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner.
Sarah paired the glittery dress with open-toe black leather heels and a brown fur bag, prompting one Twitter fan to ask, “I wonder if @SarahPalinUSA actually killed the bear that her purse is made out of.”
Meanwhile, Palin slammed hecklers who told her to “put some clothes on,” telling one to “get a job” (see video):
Personally, we don’t think Palin’s outfit was age-inappropriate or over-the-top, but it looked incongruous.
Pairing granny glasses with big hair, a short skirt and f*ck-me heels just looks weird. If Palin had fully committed to her sexy outfit and worn contacts for the night, it would have looked much better.
Over the years, Palin has frequently been parodied on “Saturday Night Live” after being nominated for U.S. vice president in 2o08. Comedian Tina Fey impersonated Sarah so well many people often confused the two brunettes.
During the SNL 40th Anniversary Celebration, Sarah was seated next to Taylor Swift, who looked visibly unhappy with her seat assignment.
Whether you loved or hated Palin’s “SNL” outfit, there’s no denying she’s in great shape.
Sarah, a longtime workout fanatic, has credited low-carb, high-protein diet and running for her fit physique, Examiner reported.
Palin, a mother of five, is a longtime workout fanatic who runs regularly and follows a high-protein, low-carb diet.
“My family and I eat a healthy diet heavy in wild Alaskan seafood, moose, caribou and fresh fruit,” Palin said in 2010.
Low-carb diets promote natural weight loss by forcing the body to burn fat for fuel, said obesity expert Dr. Jeff Volek, author of The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living.
Sarah’s low-carb, high-protein diet is similar to the Paleo diet, except she consumes dairy and alcohol. For exercise, Palin runs several miles a day.
“Conventional running is my sanity,” Sarah said in 2009. For most of her adult life, Palin ran 5 to 10 miles almost every day, except during her five pregnancies, when she switched to aerobic classes.
Sarah Palin is the author of America by Heart : Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag.
