John McCain's campaign spent more than $95,000 on hair and makeup services for vice presidential running mate Sarah Palin in the final weeks of the campaign, according to Federal Election Commission records.

Makeup artist Amy Strozzi was paid $60,385 between Sept. 1 and Nov. 24, and hairstylist Angela Lew received $34,830.

Separately, the Republican National Committee - which caused a ruckus when it spent more than $150,000 to clothe Palin and her family in September - spent about $23,000 in the final weeks at Macy's, Neiman Marcus and other stores for "campaign accessories."

The FEC reports do not explain the expense other than to say they were done in coordination with McCain's campaign.
