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

Statement from Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky, on the Passing of Oscar de la Renta


We are deeply saddened by the passing of our dear friend, Oscar de la Renta. His singular talent and exquisite taste elevated American fashion, and his warmth and friendship will be missed by our family and all whose lives he touched in his extraordinary journey.

Oscar’s remarkable eye was matched only by his generous heart. His legacy of philanthropy extended from children in his home country who now have access to education and healthcare, to some of New York’s finest artists whose creativity has been sustained through his support.

We will always be grateful to Oscar for the love he showed us, and for sharing his talent on some of the most important occasions of our lives. And we will never forget the joy, adventure, and beauty we shared with Oscar, his beloved wife, Annette, and their family during our many happy times together, especially those spent in his beloved Dominican Republic.

We join his family and many friends and admirers all over the world in mourning his loss, while also celebrating his beautiful and joyous life.

Talking policy last Friday at Georgetown, she was all business in tweed with playfully polka-dotted,  pink-accented trim.  Last night at two events at the Waldorf Astoria in New York, Hillary Clinton,  beautifully attired in evening wear,  graced two formal events.

At a dinner hosted by the World Jewish Congress, she presented Elie and Marion Wiesel with the organization’s Theodor Herzl Award.   Here she is with the Wiesels and Ronald S. Lauder, President of the World Jewish Congress.

Why Hillary Clinton Is Fashion’s Favorite Candidate

By Charlotte Cowles

Michael Kors announced today that he’ll present Hillary Clinton with his first-ever eponymous award for Outstanding Community Service at the annual Golden Heart Awards in October, WWD reports. This marks the second time this year that Clinton will come to New York for a fashion-heavy, celebrity-studded event on the arm of a renowned designer. In June, she was the star guest at the CFDAs, where she presented Oscar de la Renta with his Lifetime Achievement honor. That same night, Oscar blew up her spot while they were both onstage and announced, “Perhaps she wouldn’t like me to say this, but I think she’s going to be our next president.” The crowd then burst into applause while Clinton smiled awkwardly.
