Spanish Prime Minister's Teen Daughters Are Goth?

Updated on February 16, 2010

Spanish Prime Minister's Teen Daughters Are Goth?

The Older Generation Fashion Style vs. The New Generation Fashion Trends

It amazes me how times change and evolve. The younger generation believes that their individualistic fashion trends are better than the older generation’s sense of fashion style. Moreover, they make personal statements by adorning themselves with tattoo’s, body pear-sing, and Gothic style clothing. They honestly think that this is the way they should make their generations trendsetting fashion statement. However, it only makes them look and act like freaks. Moreover, they think that the older generation is just out of touch with today’s fashion trends. However, I feel as though my generation was more in touch with fashion style then trends. Moreover, we did not need to make our statements of individuality by dressing up like vampires. Therefore, I have concluded that the older generation had very different fashion values then today’s generation.

Funny Video Of the above Photo

Moreover, let us look at resent events; a scandal broke out over the Goth dressing of Prime Minister of Spain’s two daughters. Moreover, “Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapaterohis Zapatero has tried to keep his daughters, Laura, 16, and Alba, 13, out of the public eye but the picture taken with President and Mrs. Obama has gone viral.” (Cheryl Phillips, 2009). Furthermore, why would he allow his daughters to go to a political function in Goth Dress and then try to get the photo’s yanked from the internet? It just goes to show how embarrassed he is of his own daughter’s unprofessional and inappropriate choice of clothing. Therefore, it further proves my point, that his generation would never tolerate the embarrassment of publicly displaying his daughter’s apparent lack of self restraint and loose fashion values.

Futhermore, the older generation believed in dressing professionally and appropriately for the occasion. We were taught to never give anyone any cause to single you out for ridicule. Furthermore, we were taught the value of self restraint and making a good first impression. Therefore, the repercussions that this one fallacy in judgment will only further the cause of the younger generation’s lack of values. Moreover, “The black clothing worn by both girls and the calf-high boots worn by one of his daughter would most certainly cause Spain's adolescent goth's to rejoice.” (Cheryl Phillips, 2009). The older generation knew better than to feed the younger generations fashion trends. Moreover, that is the exact reason that he never let his daughters to be photographed up until now. Furthermore, “The Prime Minister had no idea of this when he tried to stop the spread of the photo.”

In conclusion, we as the older generation must guard against the younger generations trendy fashion statements. Furthermore, we must bring back the fashion values of the older generation’s sense of fashion style. Therefore, I have concluded that the older generation had very different fashion values then today’s generation.

      Thank you for stopping by. I do not look at how a person dresses. I look at the person. My 19 year old niece is Goth. This article was written because they were trying to hide their daughters and were trying to deny that there daughters were goth! They were ashamed of their daughters. I personally do not wish to dress this way. However, I am open minded enough to accept everyone, judging no one!

      Ever heard of not reading a book by its cover? Just because someone chooses to dress differently doesn't mean they are freaks. Someone who may look "normal" to you may be a psycho, so keep an open mind and maybe even reflect on this: how someone else dresses is really none of your business :)
