Though the name of the designer who made Hillary Clinton’s outfit last night for her presidential nomination acceptance speech has not yet been released, she certainly looked fierce. The self-proclaimed “pantsuit aficionado” took to the DNC stage last night in an all-white pantsuit that seemed to be a nod to early suffragetes.
That she was dressed as stylishly as she was is not a total surprise considering who was dressing her. According to a recently released Business of Fashion report, her part time stylist consultant was/has been none other than American Vogue editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, who is following up her backing of Obama in 2008 with continued support of the latest Democratic presidential nominee.
In addition to holding HRC fundraisers , the fashion maven has been donning “Hillary 2016” tees emblazoned with “#ImWithHer” on them. She is not alone in her support — other fashion elite down with HRC include Donna Karan, Diane von Furstenberg and Tory Burch.
Business of Fashion notes that Wintour does approach designers about making clothes for Clinton, though Clinton always pays for them herself.
Recently chastised for wearing an Armani jacket that reportedly cost $12,000, Clinton seems to now have adopted a uniform of various brightly colored — usually monochromatic — pantsuits made by American designers.
We can only wonder what styling advice Wintour would have for Clinton’s opponent’s hair. [Business of Fashion]
