I so wish, as a Stylist, that I had the opportunity to dress Hillary Clinton. It's not so far fetched...she lives in Chappaqua N.Y., which is about 15 miles from Richards of Greenwich, where I work as their Personal Shopper.
Mrs. Clinton has a tricky figure. Many women do. Few of us are perfect and even my loveliest of clients have specific figure flaws that recede, as we accentuate the positive...Tromp l'oeil. Our french counterparts have it down to a science.
Above, is how I would have liked to have seen Mrs. Clinton dressed last night for the debate. The body dictates ALL, and hers would look best with a longer jacket, with a good shoulder, a lapel, a blouse with some softness and interesting details, a slim cut trouser and a good looking pump.
The Nina McLemore suits that Mrs. Clinton favors is not her best silhouette. I looked on her website and found one that would be better far better for her. Look how different the same style jacket looks, in a solid vs. a herringbone, sleeves turned up or down and with different underpinnings. This jacket with a slim pant should be her uniform.
For evening it could be done in a beautiful velvet or silk brocade.
So, If you know anyone who knows anyone, do tell them Diva is available for consultation. No need to mention I mentioned the "C" word...
We've heard enough derogatory phrases lately to last us for quite some time. The Man in the Red Sweater should win the Noble Peace Prize...He even facilitated a closing handshake. Amazing what showing a little kindness can do...
