Sometimes, when you’re busy, all you really want to do is keep your hair out of your eyes. So we can appreciate that Secy. of State Hillary Clinton swept her hair behind her head and corralled it into a ponytail during a meeting with Peruvian Prime Minister Salomon Lerner. Only one problem: she did it with a scrunchie.
Tim Gunn has never been one to pull punches, so we shouldn’t be surprised that when he showed up for a taping of George Lopez Tonight, he came armed with lots of barbs about Snooki, the way women dress in general — and a word or two about the Secretary of State’s much-reviled pantsuits.
This was the week of the CFDA Awards — so much fashion, people! There was also a fair amount of fashion at the German state dinner (Michelle Obama, duh). Marc Jacobs‘s ad campaigns were on our mind, as were Kanye West‘s dead model video and Karl Lagerfeld‘s glassware. And, as usual, Kate/Princess Catherine/Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge/whateverhernameis looked stunning.
Would you like to see Hillary Clinton dress up in Rick Owens? We can’t imagine this would actually go down in real life, but that’s why we have Robb Young‘s new book. In Power Dressing: First Ladies, Women Politicians & Fashion, Young investigates first lady fashion, and his means of promotion are totally brilliant.
Huma Abedin didn’t stand next to her husband, Rep. Anthony Weiner, as he admitted to tweeting and emailing risque pictures of himself to women he met online this afternoon. But time and time again, the wives of public servants have stood right next to their husbands as they confessed to, described and lied about having done things that would tear most marriages apart. Below, a few pictures of how a few notable women stood by — and what they wore to do it — as their marriages became tawdry news stories.
This week was the week of censorship — Hillary Clinton, Lady Gaga, and Andrej Pejic were all victims. Chanel went all-out for its cruise show, Bristol Palin got a new surgically-altered look, and Kate Middleton is still a very big deal. Also, Iris Apfel, we love you!
Di Tzeitung, the Brooklyn-based Hasidic newspaper that Photoshopped Secy. of State Hillary Clinton and Counterterrorism Director Audrey Tomason from the now-famous situation room photo has explained its actions by posting a statement on its website, which we’ve excerpted here.
We write about Photoshop ridiculousness all the time, but this instance is a little different. A orthodox Hasidic newspaper called Der Tzitung has wiped Secy. of State Hillary Clinton and Counterterrorism Director Audrey Tomason out of the now-famous photo of US government officials watching the raid on Osama bin Laden‘s Pakistani compound, following its editorial policy never to print pictures of women.
You know how the people who play characters in movies “based on true events” never really look like the people they’re supposed to be portraying? Well we found out today that Julianne Moore was the original choice to play Hillary Clinton in The Special Relationship, Richard Loncraine‘s film about Tony Blair and Bill Clinton‘s political friendship. And when she was in full hair and makeup for the role, More looked a lot like Hillary.
The closest thing we Americans get to experiencing a royal wedding is experiencing the wedding of presidential progeny. Unlike actual royal weddings, we don’t get the day off of work and we don’t get to see the nuptials go down on television. Not as fun, right? Regardless, Hillary Clinton (current Secretary of State/former First Lady/recent mother-of-the-bride) knows a thing or two about high-profile weddings.
We know there’s something kind of silly about reading a profile of one of the world’s most powerful women and pulling out the lone quote about handbags, but we’re a style site, and when that quote is awesome, nuanced, and spot on as this one — well, we just can’t help ourselves.
Noted: If Hillary Clinton says something about sexism, you’d better pay attention. Yesterday at something called a townterview (fun with portmanteaus!) with students and other young people in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, the secretary of state was fielding some pretty boring questions until the moderator decided to get to know Clinton a little better, by way of asking her what’s in her closet. And she did not like that at all.
Whether we should be all that concerned with what female politicians put on their backs is a post we’ll leave for later in the campaign season. For right now, we and what seems like a decent number of young female politicians are obsessed with the Kate Spade Halle.
On the eve of former president Bill Clinton’s 64th birthday, Bill and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton rocked-it-baby-all-night long under the tent at the annual “Summer” party hosted by Brooke and Dan Neidich at their estate in East Hampton’s private Georgica Association. And we have photo evidence!
Since we can’t get anywhere near Chelsea Clinton’s long-awaited wedding in Rhinebeck, NY, we figured we do a little digging and separate fact from fiction, and bring you the latest Chelsea Clinton wedding news.
While we’ll leave criticism of her politicking to our friends at Mediaite, Secy. of State Hillary Clinton‘s style has oft been in the sights of fashion writers. Everyone from Anna Wintour, who publicly advised then-Sen. Clinton on what to wear during the 2008 presidential campaign, to the good people at About.com has made some kind of comment on what she’s worn. Today, Styleite joins this group.
We have to admit, this wedding dress guessing game is getting exhausting. First it was all about Vera Wang. Then the New York Times‘ White House correspondent told everyone that Chelsea Clinton’s bridal attire was definitely in the more than capable hands of Oscar de la Renta. And now photos have surfaced of Chelsea arriving at Vera Wang’s New York showroom Tuesday afternoon. What does it all mean? We have a theory.
It’s no secret that for most people, the grass is always greener. Short people wish they were taller, tall people wish they were shorter, and people named Hillary Clinton wish they had Tim Geithner’s hair. We wish we were joking.
According to a Time magazine poll of 2009′s most influential people, Lady Gaga is number one. Not only does she beat out political leaders like French President Nicholas Sarkozy (5) and Hillary Clinton (4) but, more importantly, her Gaga-ness beat out typically fierce fashion titans like Marc Jacobs (99) and Anna Wintour (122).
