In honor of Hillary Clinton‘s 65th birthday today, we’ve rounded up 65 outfits that we think define her style, both in Washington and abroad — she is, after all, the most traveled Secretary of State in U.S. history, and her wardrobe is almost as cosmopolitan as she is. Almost.
The politico’s suits venture far from basic black — campaign outings during the 2008 election show Clinton in colors from persimmon to pumpkin to periwinkle — and consistently fit far better than those of some her male counterparts in Washington. We also know she considers Oscar de la Renta “the ultimate statesman of American fashion,” and once attended the Met Costume Institute Ball in leopard print taffeta. And, of course, there’s the fact that she’s not afraid to wear a scrunchie, no matter how many people advise her otherwise.
So for that (and, you know, all of her other myriad services to the country) we salute her! Happy birthday, Hillary!
