Hillary Clinton Goes Glam for Daughter Chelsea's Rehearsal Dinner

07/31/2010 at 10:20 AM ET


Gone are her famous iconic headbands and matching primary color pantsuits, and in their place, a glamorous printed caftan. Hillary Clinton, is that really you? The Secretary of State turned up the style quotient on Friday night as she left her daughter Chelsea Clinton’s rehearsal dinner at the Beekman Arms Inn on Rhinebeck in a flowing turquoise dress with a low V-neck paired with a radiant smile. An onlooker even commented, “Hillary looks gorgeous! Her dress is so chic! She’s definitely not a dowdy mother of the bride.” And father of the bride Bill Clinton got kudos as well, earning praise from another onlooker, “They look so happy, just like parents of the bride, not a former President and the current Secretary of State.” So are we guessing that her modesty issues of the past are gone now? We’ll have to wait and see what she wears to the big event tonight, but all bets are on a dress from her go-to designer of years, the always-elegant Oscar de la Renta. –reporting by Mary Park

Give the girl a break. She is on Stage 24/7 and needs to let her hair down. She will be at her finest this PM for the wedding.

Not to celebrities: Always make sure clothes are camera friendly…

it’s a nice happy dress… wear it .. it’s easy and breezy.. very fresh and different. it’s not supposed to be a figure-flattering dress.. but that’s the whole point of this fashion. In this overly-maddening figure-focused culture, can’t we ever remember that the best fashion ever is our smile and feelings??

for important ocasssions, we often fuss and muss over our entire outfit the whole time.

she is smiling, happy and free… celebrating.
the fabric of the outfit is so pretty fresh and refreshing.. like the breeze flowing.

she’s SO HAPPY… and that is true fashion, folks.

the negative comments sound a little green that some of u are not having that much fun.. what she sent no invitation card to you??

She looks great. The caftan is fitting in her midriff and her cleavage not over done. Great color. She looks Happy!

She looks like a radiant, happy mother of the bride! For those of you who criticize..lets have a look in YOUR closet, since you are apparently experts.

I like the hair. She is obviously outside her comfort zone, do you see the “death grip” of her right hand? The colors are refreshing and it is nice to see her in something other than matching pantsuits. You go Hillary!!
