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

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I am getting close to her age and the “tent-o-rama” look will never be in my wardrobe. Don’t be so sensitive dems…she is a very powerful female figure and not bad for her age but the dress doesn’t do her justice.

Hillary can wear whatever she wants. This was a rehearsal dinner not the red carpet. She looks happy and comfortable.

Is this a caftan? Are they back in? It would have been lovely just as a dress, without all the extraneous yardage. She is a lovely woman, but her style is non-existent. Show some leg Hilary!

I really don’t mean to be mean, because I admire Hillary, but that really is not a flattering outfit. I actually think one of her suits and head bands would have been prettier. My son is getting married next year and I’ll certainly be wearing something much more feminine and figure flattering than this.

That has got to be the UGLIEST dress Ive ever seen. It doesnt seem to accentuate any part of her,in fact, it makes things look much worse. The color doesnt do a thing for her. That gown, (said loosely) isnt appropriate attire for such an ocassion, possibly, would work for a beach party as a cover up. And yes, you would think with all that money, she could find at least one stylist that could find a hair style that would look good on her.

Hummmm. Well you can put make-up on a pig to make it prettier but in the end it’s still a pig.

Her hair looks good for a change. The dress isn’t soo flattering on her at all. I would have chosen something else. It looks horrible.
