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

It’s a very pretty dress. Don’t hate on her because she’s overweight.

She looks great and dares to be a bit different; no cookie cutter here. Down, all of you attack dogs! All of these negative comments smack of jealousy.

I agree, the photo is not flattering. You can tell the waist is cinched but the definition is hard to see with her arm raised. Would love to see what some people making the comments look like. Best wishes to the Clintons on a very special day.

Actually, that’s not bad. I’m not wild about that particular print, but it does look nice and I’m sure its comfortable. Better than those mother-of-the bride type dresses with tons of sequins on ’em.

I am not a Hillary fan by any means, but she looks radiant, comfortable, and confident; something we should hope for everyone. Enjoy the moment Hillary, and have a great time at your daughter’s wedding!

Its a MUMU!

This is definitely an improvement but it still goes go show you, “You can’t make a silk purse out of a sows ear!” God bless her for trying though!

I think is looks great. She should dress more often like this – even as secretary of state.

Maybe someday someone will snap a picture of you, and we can all post critiques that have nothing to do with your character, and soothe our insecurities. Wearing a “tent” is totally appropriate for a fifty-something mother of the bride at a rehearsal dinner. The bride should be the hottest one there, and hopefully the mom’s not showing off her figure. What kind of clothes do you ladies wear to these events–denim minis and stretch camis, so you can show off your figure (if you even have one) like you’re suggesting? As for her hair, it’s up to date and well styled, which you would know if you weren’t still obsessed with 10-year-old chunky highlights and facial framing.

Ah… since when is wearing a moo-moo considered glamorous? I bet she looked hot in her snuggie later that night.
