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

Okay, am I the only one who knows what a bad photo this is? I am certain this dress looks a LOT better when she doesn’t have her arm raised, she isn’t billowing in the breeze when making a quick exit, and the harsh light from all the photogs lights aren’t hitting the right side. Has anyone noticed that her waist starts about one foot inward from each side? Are young women so easily taken in by bad photography these days? Yikes.

I think she looks great. And the prettiest thing she has on, is her smile. But her dress looks great. Judging from the gentlemens lack of ties, it was not formal, so a casual but glamorous caftan was perfect!

Doesn’t do her ANY justice.
Next time Hil, please DO NOT try to make a dress out of the afghan that you knitted!

Well, it is definitely different from what we are used to seeing her wear. I wish there was another angle of her, because I bet it was very pretty on her. Congrats to the family.

A classy dress for a classy lady. She looks breathtakingly beautiful!

the only thing surprising is the print. she is known for having cankles and large hips. ellen degeneres looks more feminine.

Love her hair! Wish she’d wear it like that all the time.

Bill Clinton on

Wow, it worked! She cut a hole in a bed sheet and put it over her head. Now if I can only get her to put a paper bag over her head.

She looks as frumpy as she always has. Nice to see the Democratic stalwarts putting on the most ostentatious show of the year.
I thought the mantra was “take from the rich and give to the poor”. Oh, that’s right all of the servers will get their minimum wage.
