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

Tami and Allison…it’s time to change out of your sweat pants.

Hilary is a beautiful mother-of-the-bride. Shes very famous around the world, as is her husband. The attention this weekend is for Chelsey. Yes,Hilary could have worn something more flattering for her body type, but this isnt a fashion show. Shes dressed in what looks more like a kimono then a mumu. I think its a very befitting outfit for a woman in her position.

I think she looks great and the dress, although not form-fitting, looks elegant and comfortable.

It looks like a left over bed sheet.

Sorry Hilary, that looks like a burlap sack that was dyed to look pretty. Makes you look like a sack of potatoes. You’re much too pretty to be wearing something like that.

Hides her cankles!

Wow… that must be the Al Gore going green dress. Yuck.

The color of her outfit is beautiful, but the style does seem out-of-date. Of all the outfits she could wear, this one does surprise me. But she does look very, very happy. That’s what counts.

Looks like she borrowed that fish dress from Oprah.

Quite horrible. I don’t know what she was thinking, but I do hope her Mother of the Bride outfit is 100% better than this train wreck of a dress.
