Beards continue to dominate Maltese fashion – and politics – as the latest figure to show up with a hairy face is none other than Prime Minister Joseph Muscat.
In an Instagram featuring Muscat with some heavy stubble, Glenn Bedingfield asked people to have their say on whether they preferred the Prime Minister with a beard or not. And while a lot of people seemed to dig the new look, others still reminisced about Muscat’s usual cleaner shave.
Illum editor Albert Gauci Cunningham, on the other hand, took to Facebook to joke about how it’s now been officially proven that Castille’s preferred look is the beard.
“Beard in, baby faces out,” Cunningham said. “At least on this point we can definitely all agree!”
