'I'm going to pitch a show for Bravo. We can call it Project Pantsuit': Hillary Clinton takes aim at her own signature style at CFDA Fashion AwardsBy Tamara Abraham
Hillary Clinton had America's fashion elite in stitches last night, during her hilarious speech at the CFDA Fashion Awards.
The former Secretary of State, who got a standing ovation as she took to the podium at New York's Lincoln Center, took aim at her penchant for pantsuits.
She told the assembled crowd: 'I'm going to be pitching Andy [Cohen] on a new show for Bravo... we can call it Project Pantsuit.'
Naturally, Mrs Clinton, 65, was wearing one of her friend's designs. She sported a pair of Oscar de la Renta pants with a long, embellished navy coat and dazzling blue earrings.
Adding this in. You have got to love that header and the picture. That smile! Simply irresistible!
The other easy consensus from the night? Secretary Hillary Clinton stole the show.
While host Andy Cohen had a hard time eliciting so much as a chuckle from the oh-so-serious fashion crowd, Clinton, there to present the Eleanor Lambert founder’s award to her buddy Oscar de la Renta, had no trouble bringing the entire auditorium to its feet.
“Now that I have some more time on my hands I am going to be pitching Andy and others on a new show for Bravo to sort of fill that gap that is so apparent to some of us,” Clinton said, wearing a midnight blue glittering pantsuit by Oscar de la Renta. “We could call it Project Pantsuit.” The crowd went wild. (“Project Pantsuit is totally a go,” Cohen said later on. “Madeleine Albright is doing the first challenge.”)
And the jokes didn’t stop there.
And maybe, just maybe, de la Renta and Clinton’s deep bond explains the lack of one he has with First Lady Michelle Obama–who has never worn his designs. Maybe he’s just waiting to dress the President.
