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

She looks lovely. Good for her for stepping out of her fashion routine, without being silly. Elegant, feminine, modern, classic. A great choice.

She looks like she’s wearing something that you would wear around the house when you did’nt feel like getting dressed!

This looks more like something she would’ve picked up from the street vendors during her recent trip to Pakistan. What was she thinking? After eons of wearing single color pant suits she has lost touch with reality and fashion. This dress would definitely look glamorous for a nun, but not for somebody who has enough friends in high fashion places.

I think she looks fabulous – and radiantly happy! Congratulations to the family! As a working mom of a daughter, I’m thrilled to see such a powerful woman who managed to raise a terrific daughter enjoy a glamorous night out. Something to aspire to.

Wow, MaMa Cass 60,s style look. I think it is so Retro. She is truly in touch with the people.

THAT is glamorous? She definitely looks better than usual but glamorous? It’s as though she got that from Aretha Franklin’s closet….

You’ve gotta be kidding me? This is going glam? What were they thinking? She looks like a potatoe!

Maddy on

If you would all look under her left shoulder, you would realize that there is a fitted sheath under the caftan. The caftan is sheer and layers over the main dress.

She looks wonderful. And her hair looks much better now, rather than that short do she had.

You all must be fashion consultants or experts from the comments here. I bet if we saw what some of you wear for important occasions, we’d be laughing.
