Nancy Pelosi's Decade In Style (PHOTOS, POLL)

First Posted: 12/24/2010 4:21 am   Updated: 05/25/2011 6:20 pm

The past decade was good to Nancy Pelosi: she became the first woman Speaker of the House and she secured her title as Armani lover and Queen of Skirt Suits. She began 2000 with a total reluctance to give up the '90s, holding on to oversized shoulder pads and shapeless suits (layered with turtleneck sweaters, of course).

But over time, Pelosi's wardrobe has evolved to include flattering skirt suits in colors other than black or gray, and her red carpet ensembles are prime examples of age-appropriate glamour. One thing that hasn't changed over the years, however, is her penchant for beaded necklaces.

As she returns to Washington to become House Minority Leader in the new year, tell us which looks should be left in this decade, and which looks should follow Nancy into her new job.
