It’s Fashion Week in New York, and Hillary’s personal style is having an effect on the runways.

Hillary Clinton May Have Lost the Election, But She’s Winning the Runways

At New York Fashion Week, pantsuits for all!

She may not have won the election, but remarkably, Hillary Clinton, pilloried for her appearance her entire public life, has become a fashion trendsetter.The 2016 presidential candidate could very well be the inspiration for New York Fashion Week’s most pervasive fall 2017 trend, the pantsuit, seen on nearly every runway so far, including Calvin Klein, Victoria Beckham and Gabriela Hearst. While the style has been a red carpet favorite of Emma Watson, Blake Lively and Evan Rachel Wood (the Westworld actress has made the look her new unofficial uniform), brands as disparate as Aussie babe fave Zimmermann, French club wear go-to Zadig & Voltaire and dresser-of-Indian-royalty Naeem Khan have also offered up pantsuit options for every occasion.Zimmermann

If there is one thing Hillary Clinton is enjoying lately, it is the Great White Way. Audiences there are quick to spot her no matter how full the house.

With One Look: Hillary Clinton Gets a Standing Ovation at Sunset Boulevard

Former presidential candidate visits Broadway for the second time in a month.

Former presidential candidate, Secretary of State and First Lady Hillary Clinton was greeted with cheers and a standing ovation February 15 at Broadway’s Palace Theatre where she came to see Glenn Close in Sunset Boulevard.

Clinton arrived at the theatre about three minutes before curtain, and was quickly recognized by the audience, which began cheering.

As the lights went down for the show to start, just as the audience quieted down, someone shouted “We love you, Hillary” and the crowd applauded through the beginning of the overture clearly in response to the shout-out.

Hillary Clinton was the first student to deliver a commencement address at Wellesley when she graduated in 1969. She had been chosen for the task by her classmates. When the guest speaker that year, Senator Edward Brooke of Massachusetts,  delivered remarks which she felt conflicted with the aspirations she and her class held, she departed from her prepared address and spoke from her heart – famously!

Well, she’s coming back! This time as the guest speaker at the 2017 commencement.

 

Hillary Clinton at Wellesley

Hillary Rodham Clinton ’69 Will Return to Wellesley College to Deliver 2017 Commencement Address

Former Presidential Candidate, Global Champion for Women, and Iconic Leader of Our Time Selected to Speak by Class of 2017
Wellesley, Mass.—Hillary Rodham Clinton ’69 will address the members of the Wellesley College Class of 2017 and an international audience of their family and friends at Wellesley’s 139th commencement exercises on Friday, May 26, at 10:30 am. Unlike many other colleges and universities, Wellesley’s commencement speaker selection process is driven by its students.

“Secretary Clinton’s decision to come to Wellesley is profoundly inspiring to all of us at the College. As Wellesley students, we arrive here believing in a future that respects women’s potential and accomplishment, but as graduating seniors, and at this moment in history, we look to Secretary Clinton, our sister, as someone who will inspire us to make that future now,” said Casey Butler ’17, co-president of the senior class. Amal Cheema ’17, also co-president, added, “She is the best person to represent who we have become at Wellesley and who we strive to be in the world. Her tireless push for progress embodies the spirit—and the courage—we seek in breaking down barriers and shattering glass ceilings of all kinds.”

If there was any doubt that Broadway audiences love seeing the Clintons among them, that was put to rest this weekend.  Just a week after attending the closing performance of “The Color Purple” where Hillary received a standing ovation, the Clintons caught the closing matinee of “The Humans” where the audience repeated the greeting.

The couple received a “full standing ovation” when they arrived, and Hillary did a “full 360-wave to the crowd,” witnesses said.

In late January, 2013, only days before she left office, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was joined by former Secretary James Baker to launch the State Department Diplomacy Center.

In early September 2014, she returned to the State Department again joined by predecessors Henry Kissinger, James Baker, Madeleine Albright, and Colin Powell as well as her successor, John Kerry, for a ceremonial ground-breaking 0f the U.S. Diplomacy Center.

Hillary returned once more today to celebrate the completion of U.S. Diplomacy Center Pavilion, the first floor of which was dedicated and named the Hillary Rodham Clinton Pavilion. Best compliments, Mme. Secretary! You earned this!  We cannot wait to visit this impressive new landmark museum!

Today’s matinee was sold out because it was the final performance of “The Color Purple” on Broadway. To the surprised delight of the audience, Hillary Clinton was in the house for the send off. She received a sustained standing ovation and brought down the house before the curtain even went up!

Hillary Clinton, who has kept a relatively low public profile since losing the presidential election two months ago, on Sunday showed up at the final performance of a revival of “The Color Purple” on Broadway.

Mrs. Clinton received a sustained standing ovation from the sold-out crowd, a response far warmer than the scattered booing and clapping that greeted the arrival of Vice President-elect Mike Pence when he attended “Hamilton,” just one block north, on Nov. 18. Mrs. Clinton was accompanied by her husband, Bill Clinton, and their daughter, Chelsea.

“We love you Hillary,” audience members yelled as they snapped pictures and clapped. Several thanked Mrs Clinton and told her, “God bless you.”

“God bless you,” Mrs. Clinton replied.

This was an unplanned honor! Hillary will be in Washington DC on Tuesday to be recognized for her State Department leadership at the dedication of a museum named for her.

Heading into the final stretch, while the commentariat kept circulating the bogus story of an enthusiasm gap, Hillary met ardent audiences everywhere she went.

At the Pasco-Hernando State College East Campus in Dade City, Florida, Alicia Machado introduced Hillary Clinton to a wildly enthusiastic audience.

She said “No, no, no, no!”  Mr. Trump will not get her first vote as a U.S. citizen.

Hillary’s last stop in Florida that night was a rally in Fort Lauderdale.  She was just as energized there as she was at her first event of the day in Dade City.

Before boarding her plane to take her campaign to Nevada and Arizona, Hillary greeted early voters in Lauderhill, Florida. Hillary had some very enthusiastic support in the largely Caribbean neighborhood!

Hillary’s last western stop yesterday was in Tempe, Arizona. She held an early vote rally at the Sun Devil Fitness Complex.  The crowd was huge and enthusiastic.

Hillary’s campaign circled back to the battleground state of North Carolina.  She rallied voters at Pitt Community College in Winterville.  Eleanor Holmes Norton and G.K. Butterfield introduced her.

Hillary ran between the raindrops in south Florida.  She greeted early voters in West Miami,  stopped by a field office in Miami, and visited Little Haiti.  Then she went on to a rally in Pembroke Pines where Randi Weingarten warmed up the crowd and Trayvon Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, greeted her.

Hillary attended Sunday morning services at the Mt. Airy Church of God.  After services, she stopped off at the Cedar Park Cafe. Then she was on her way to Ohio for a rally in Cleveland.

LeBron James brought in J.R. Smith and his little daughter to introduce Hillary at a GOTV rally in Cleveland. Of course the Cleveland crowd loved it.

Even when Hillary was onscreen talking about her issues and plans, media displayed partisan or ambiguous tickers (see photo above) echoing the opposition’s preoccupations. The meme that Hillary participated in a nasty campaign is a lie.  At every stop, Hillary spoke to issues she had accrued while listening to voters for a year and a half.  While televising her speeches, the MSM often ran damaging tickers on the screen distracting from her words. In the end the same media sources would say it was a campaign of attacks. That is true in the sense that Hillary was attacking the issues. The media and the GOP were attacking her.

Gold Star dad, Khizr Khan, introduced Hillary at a rally in Manchester where James Taylor gave a special performance.

The last day on the trail and that was sinking in for Hillary’s traveling press corps who took pictures with her on the tarmac in White Plains before taking off for Pittsburgh.

Hillary published an op-ed that final day of the campaign summarizing her reasons for running and the objectives she developed with our input – all of ours. This document flies in the face of Joe Biden’s claim that she never figured out why she was running.  Hillary has never done anything without a reason.  She deliberated long and hard before entering this contest and had very solid reasons for running that she could not ignore or she never would have done it.

Hillary’s final rally in Michigan was held at Grand Valley State University in Allendale where she met up with Debbie Stabenow.

If ever there could have been a reminder of the republic that was at stake in this election, it was the optics of the rally in Philadelphia. The crowd filled the space where the Declaration of Independence was first read to a crowd not quite so large.  The place where Benjamin Franklin, when asked what form of government was established, said, “A republic, madam, if you can keep it,” hosted Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen, Chelsea and President Bill Clinton, in that order, Michelle Obama, President Obama, and finally, the woman of the evening, Hillary Clinton who apparently stunned Hollywood fashionistas in her scarlet pantsuit.

Those of us who had followed her through the day knew that she had not changed her attire for this event.  She looked fresh as a rose, and her busy day was not ending there!  She moved on to a late night rally in Raleigh after Barack Obama played Hillary to Hillary’s Bill and escorted her offstage at the end.

What we knew before the crowd at the North Carolina State William Neal Reynolds Coliseum knew it was that Bon Jovi was on the plane with all the Clintons when they left Philadelphia for the very last rally in Raleigh.

What none of us knew was that Lady Gaga would be at the rally. In a nod to Madeleine Albright, she sported a big, beautiful pin on the jacket of her pantsuit.  She spoke and then she performed with total Gaga gusto.

And then it was D-Day.

Shortly before 4 a.m. EST Hillary Clinton’s campaign plane touched down at Westchester Airport for the last time. Press and staff deboarded, and a huge hometown crowd was on the tarmac awaiting and cheering her.

Only a few hours later, the Clintons were at their polling place where once again they were greeted by a large turnout of their neighbors.

And then it all went sideways.  We watched the returns in disbelief. The next morning, she conceded, graciously with her chin up.

11-09-16-z-1911-09-16-z-1811-09-16-z-04

“… to the millions of volunteers, community leaders, activists and union organizers who knocked on doors, talked to neighbors, posted on Facebook, even in secret, private Facebook sites – I want everybody coming out from behind that and make sure your voices are heard going forward.”

Many of us never hid, were never secretive, and always posted publicly no matter what the cost. Many of us have always been loud and proud. We continue to be.  Some of us posted our thank-yous to Hillary here.

There were tributes.

Hillary was not the honoree at this award event.  Christine LaGarde was, but she joined in praising Hillary who wasn’t even there.

Introducing Hillary, Marian Wright Edelman noted her overwhelming lead in the popular vote and called her “the People’s President.”  Hillary admitted that making this appearance was not the easiest thing for her.  She said she wanted to curl up with a good book and her dogs and never leave the house again.  But she said she got up and dusted herself off because Marian exemplified that for her.

There have been Hillary-sightings, several of these in the woods, leading to some interesting new Twitter accounts. Her hometown has rallied around her, of course.

Toward the end of the month, the campaign responded to the many calls for a recount or an audit.

Hillary made a surprise appearance at the UNICEF Snowflake Gala where her fervent supporter, Katy Perry was honored.

November ended with the campaign requesting assistance with the recount which Hillary’s campaign had not initiated. Protocol allows and common sense dictates fair representation of all sides no matter where the recount request originates.

November began on an optimistic note and ended with Hillary’s team still shaking our heads and not quite sure what happened except that we were pretty certain Comey’s October 27 letter did damage as did the wikileaks gusher of campaign emails. Trump’s Russian ties and vile tweets and remarks somehow got passes. More than three weeks after Election Day, many Hillary supporters were still down in our cups and dealing with shock, loss, and grief. But we will never be sorry for the run. It was glorious. We are proud of our Hillary and will defend her to the end.
