Shimon Peres, Hillary Clinton honour Edgar Bronfman at NY memorial

Jan 28, 2014 Verena Dobnik, The Associated Press

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Hillary Clinton joined the family and friends of Edgar Bronfman on Tuesday to remember a Jewish leader whose vast whiskey fortune was eclipsed by a globally-connected personal force that helped Holocaust survivors win back what the Nazis stole.

“He exuded a confidence and honesty that won him the friendship and support of presidents and popes and people everywhere,” the former U.S. secretary of state and first lady told a memorial gathering in Manhattan.

Clinton said she arranged a 1996 meeting — on just a day’s notice from Bronfman — between him and then U.S. President Bill Clinton. The encounter led to years of negotiations over Holocaust assets between Swiss banks, the World Jewish Congress and the U.S. government.

During the 1980s and 1990s, the congress helped lead the effort to gain $11 billion in restitution for heirs of Holocaust victims. Bronfman was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Hillary Clinton glowed in an Oscar de la Renta ensemble at Lincoln Center to present him with the Founders Award at the CFDA Awards tonight.   These are some early photos.  There may be more later, so check back.  Some of the pics come from a Daily Mail article.   Hillary was her adorable,  “hill-arious” self.  You can see the video here.

‘I’m going to pitch a show for Bravo. We can call it Project Pantsuit’: Hillary Clinton takes aim at her own signature style at CFDA Fashion Awards

Hillary Clinton had America’s fashion elite in stitches last night, during her hilarious speech at the CFDA Fashion Awards.

The former Secretary of State, who got a standing ovation as she took to the podium at New York’s Lincoln Center, took aim at her penchant for pantsuits.

She told the assembled crowd: ‘I’m going to be pitching Andy [Cohen] on a new show for Bravo… we can call it Project Pantsuit.’

SNIP

Naturally, Mrs Clinton, 65, was wearing one of her friend’s designs. She sported a pair of Oscar de la Renta pants with a long, embellished navy coat and dazzling blue earrings.

Adding this in. You have got to love that header and the picture. That smile! Simply irresistible!

Hillary Clinton Steals the Show at the CFDA Awards, Nabs a Presidential Endorsement

06-03-13-F-01The other easy consensus from the night? Secretary Hillary Clinton stole the show.

While host Andy Cohen had a hard time eliciting so much as a chuckle from the oh-so-serious fashion crowd, Clinton, there to present the Eleanor Lambert founder’s award to her buddy Oscar de la Renta, had no trouble bringing the entire auditorium to its feet.

“Now that I have some more time on my hands I am going to be pitching Andy and others on a new show for Bravo to sort of fill that gap that is so apparent to some of us,” Clinton said, wearing a midnight blue glittering pantsuit by Oscar de la Renta. “We could call it Project Pantsuit.” The crowd went wild. (“Project Pantsuit is totally a go,” Cohen said later on. “Madeleine Albright is doing the first challenge.”)

And the jokes didn’t stop there.

And maybe, just maybe, de la Renta and Clinton’s deep bond explains the lack of one he has with First Lady Michelle Obama–who has never worn his designs. Maybe he’s just waiting to dress the President.

Well here is a remark that has to make any Clinton fan smile.

“I thank her every time she sings ’Evergreen’ for me at political events,” said former President Clinton, who called Streisand to the stage and handed her the award.

These were President Clinton’s words in tribute to Barbra Streisand as she received the Chaplin Award at Lincoln Center.  Everyone who is anyone was there.

“Someone told me when I was elected president that politics was show business for ugly people. That was before Hillary got into it.”

Bill Clinton, at a New York City event honoring Barbra Streisand on Monday night, according to Variety. The former president also reportedly invited co-presenter Ben Stiller over for a “Meet the Fockers” movie night to “watch Barbra give sex advice to old people — like me!”

“Ever since I can remember, people have been calling me bossy and opinionated,” Barbra Streisand told a crowd at Lincoln Centre on Monday night. “Maybe that’s because I am. Three cheers for bossy women!”

The crowd, which included Bill and Hillary Clinton, cheered for pretty much anything connected to Streisand all evening as the star of song and screen was honoured for her film career with the 40th annual Chaplin award from the Film Society of Lincoln Centre.
