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 look really fits her…she looks so radiant and content, is like she finally is showing off the other side of her, happy go luck girl!

I am happy for her and best wishing to the bride!

It looks like a muu-muu. With all of her money and fame, Hillary could have done a lot better in the dress department.

Looks like a tent with those arm flap things, but I’m wondering if photo was taken at a bad angle. Not sure if I see a cinched waist there or not. Might be better as a hands-on-hip dress. I do like the fabric. Ethereal looking.

It’s a mumu

If you look closely, it is cinched at the waist, but still not figur friendly. Hilary is in good shape for her age. She should have worn a shorter, figure hugging dress. However…I love the color for summer!

While she does look radiantly happy, that picture is not the most flattering. I think the dress would be better without the sleeves. The big sleeves clash with the rest of the dress and make it look like a tent (at least in this photo). The sleeves ruin what otherwise looks like a nice dress, but hey if she’s happy what else matters.

I really like this. If you look closely its clenched at the waist and very flattering in the bust area. Through her arms (a problem for most woman!) it sheer. Its not what I would wear but, Im not pushing 64 yrs old and sec. of state. I think she looks great!

Oh no… absolutely the wrong style for her not at all flattering… what was she thinking?
