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

This is her daughter’s wedding and I think that she should be allowed to pick whatever she wants to wear. It isn’t the best outfit that I’ve ever seen her wear, but it should be her choice. Her hair could be more becoming. She definately needs to see a hair stylist. I hope she does, before the wedding tonight. God Bless her family. May they have many years of happiness!

It looks like night the standard dress of most Indian women wear in many cities across India. What a whaco designer! How tasteless

Okay, okay she doesn’t look red carpet ready but she looks radiant, happy and a move in the right direction with something not so traditional and overly seen. I think for a 60 something women she is a role model of how older women should look (you know with not perfect face or trendy clothes but very interesting and charming)
You go Hillary!

Not for nothing, but check the expressions on the guys faces around her. Must not want to be there.

I think she looks fantastic- I love that color on her and hair style is really cute. She looks younger and beautiful.

Have a great day Hillary!

This is one of the hardest working people on the planet. After a year and a half non-stop on airplanes, let her relax, folks. She looks VERY comfortable. She deserves it.

As they once said: You go, girl !

good color.. very ocean like matching her eyes…

very cosmopolitian…

dare we suggest she should have worn a silk saree though (which would have flattered her slender frame even more..)

Obviously Hillary went tent shopping at the Sports Authority.

@Tami and Allison-I agree. It does nothing for her. It’s very unflattering.
