The day the Baroness left Clin­ton speech­less

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
