The Art Of Power Dressing By HILLARY Clinton...
Behold! Hillary and her endless masterclass on how to pull off a power suit
I’ll preface this by saying that it really infuriates me when female politicians are reduced to what they wear, particularly when said politician just so happens to be hillary Clinton, former first lady, previous secretary of state and (please god) the next Us president. however, fashion, for all its frivolities, is one of the most effective tools with which one can communicate.
and, since her turn as first lady, hillary has proved that she knows an outfit can speak a thousand words. she was, for example, the first woman in the White house to wear trousers for an official portrait. Don’t think those rainbow shades are an accident, either. In the first presidential debate in september, hillary wore a bright red Ralph Lauren suit. Red is a colour usually attributed to the Republican party, suggesting hillary was being deliberately subversive. But it’s also a colour that symbolises passion, love and courage. It’s certainly a colour that can’t be ignored.
as a woman in what’s still a man’s world, hillary’s choice of trouser suits (a traditionally male form of dress) are the true definition of power dressing. on 8November, when america’s votes are cast, at least one thing will be certain: hillary wears the trousers. they are her sartorial trump card.
