Robin Carnahan, Missouri's Secretary of State who has tipped her hat into a 2010 Senate race, likes to play up her farm roots (she manages a cattle farm!) on the campaign trail but sure has some New York City tastes.

Politico's gossip writer Anne Schroeder Mullins says she's definitely a "Miranda" when it comes to fashion.

And, she's already scored a swanky headline even though she only announced she was running for the Senate last week.

She'll be appearing alongside some heavy-hitters at an upcoming Women's Campaign Forum at Christie's in Rockfeller Plaza. Oo-lah-lah!

Here's the invite below:

Of course, I don't blame a women for wanting to look good. (Although the geometric cow print dress really isn't my taste at all...) It's just rather remarkable she's already hitting the New York City circuit.
