Steven Mnuchin and Louise Linton were all smiles on Wednesday at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Washington. The couple admired a sheet of freshly pressed dollar bills featuring Mnuchin and U.S. Treasurer Jovita Carranza’s signatures. While it was a monumental occasional for Mnuchin and Carranza, Mnuchin and Linton were the clear stars, serving Scrooge McDuck realness while basking in their contribution to the U.S. dollar.
Linton has become known for her over-the-top lifestyle choices, from private jets to carefully hashtagged designer clothes. For Wednesday’s occasion, she wore a black blouse paired with a long leather skirt and above-the-elbow leather gloves, proving the old Washington adage: there’s no such thing as too much leather at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing.
Linton treated the experience like an America’s Next Top Model challenge. Though she was in the mechanical and sterile environment of the Bureau surrounded by older men in suits, she still managed to give her best pouts and poses like her Ford Models contract depended on it. Boring old government factory, but make it 1999 Keanu Reeves-inspired fashion.
No matter how hard she tries, Louise Linton just can’t help but being Louise Linton.
