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

Tami on

that’s not all that pretty.

Allison on

She looks better than usual, but that is considered stylish? Really? Not very figure flattering.

debbie hulles on

OMG…What was she thinking???? and who the heck is her clothes advisor?????

Natalie Thunberg on

Gorgeous! Fantastic! Ethnic! She is a true woman of the world!

Sandy on

She really needs to do something with that hair of hers, with all her money you would think she could find a hair stylist that could do something better with it….and that “tent” go figure

Yeah, it’s not that great – ok not great at all I don’t consider that stylish or figure flattering. I hope she wears something better at the wedding.

R on

I agree, not flattering. But at least it’s more feminine than she usually is seen wearing.

Wendi on

I don’t think it’s all that flattering. She could have definitely picked something else that would have looked better. Just because it is expensive, doesn’t mean it looks good.

Leslie Eriksson on

Definitely Not flattering at all, and, of course, I have been wishing she’d cut her hair back to how it looked 2 years ago…… But, she’s not my mother and she can do what she likes.

Myles on

Wow Allison and Tami… How negative. The woman is celebrating her daugther’s wedding and looks over the moon happy! How would you feel if someone was so mean about what your mother chose to wear to your own wedding/rehersal dinner? I didn’t know we had stlye icons Tami Gucci and Allison Pucci commenting on People.com…
