The day the Baroness left Clinton speechless
Monica Lewinsky was perhaps the only woman in the White House in the 1990s who didn’t get her dresses dry-cleaned — in particular, a blue Gap dress that caught President Clinton’s fancy, so to speak, in February of 1997.
But that hasn’t stopped the ever stylish Baroness Michelle Mone from admiring her. At a speech at a charity lunch in Fire in Dublin’s Mansion House, she told the story of meeting Bill Clinton at an event while he was President and telling him: “I just want to be Monica for one night.”
“He was too flabbergasted to respond,” Baroness Mone told the crowd, before telling the inspirational story of her life, from poverty to global success as a businesswoman.
The event was in aid of To Children With Love, founded by another inspirational blonde bombshell — Debbie Deegan, who had the room at Fire riveted with the work of her organisation, which has been changing children’s lives for 19 years.
“We have incredible success stories of children that had little hope, postState care, going on to achieve huge success. We were thrilled to have Michelle at our lunch, endorsing the work of our charity and our gorgeous new charity shop in Portmarnock,” Debbie said.
