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

Hill is dressed femail for a change. But yikes, that mu mu probably from J.C. Penney. But there’s a great deal to cover, as it were. I don’t mind slamming bad taste because it contrasts with her and hubby’s enormously strategized p.r. efforts to remain important, Hil for sure. And, after all, Hil is our “image/representative” to international diplomacy. Hope the newlyweds are treated politely by the press and gossipists, then left alone in privacy to build their lives.
And the he is faithful.

It looks horrible!!!Can’t believe anyone would wear that, especially someone who is in the public eye.

I am so happy for the Clintons, expecially Bill and Hillary. It must be such a happy and at the same time a sad time for them, Chelsea being the only child. Bill and Hillary look so happy and I hope everything turns out good for all of them. They have gone through so much politically and personally. They deserve all the happiness and blessings in the world. God bless their family always.

That’s glam? Well, I guess in Rhinebeck, NY, that passes for glam. And it looks as if her hair color is a home job.

Is Hillary Clinton trying to outdress Liz Taylor. A moo moo ..What was she thinking.? Well she still is showing her Arkansas glamor roots.

Kudos to Hilary! She looks truly elated and her dress is flattering, sophisticated and fun all at the same time. Finally the woman has a chance to let her hair down and relax. I hope the entire family enjoys every second of this special occasion. Hilary has so much class!

I think it looks alot better than some of the suits that she wears. And you gotta remember it is summer and it’s 100+ degrees too. I think she looks great. Congrats to the family.
