Hillary, good at self-deprecating rather than dressing up

Us secretary of state Hillary Clinton who is 65 years old now has always kept her own distinctive fashion sense by wearing exaggerated sunglasses, pants. Na matter how strongly questioned, she still persists in her old ways.

In a recent foreign ministers affair of the group of twenty, other attendance all wear white shirt while Hillary wear a yellow-green coat, which forced her to sit in a position that is nearest to the center. But for Hillary, it is just a trifle thing. She has been criticized more in dressing problem than political issues for a long time.

In fact, at an age of young when on campus of Wells Lee University in Massachusetts, Hillary had left many weird pictures such as wearing shiny gold sleeveless dress and coke bottle glasses. Though someone said she looked like Angelina Julie that time, they will add of course not a pretty Angelina Julie.

She became US first lady in January, 1993. She wore a dark red plaid skirt when turned up on her husband Bill Clinton’s presidential inauguration, which made her quite lively compared with the president’s solemn black suit. And what’s worse, the first day she even wore a dark blue small hat with round edge. She said she couldn’t forget that day and that suits even years later when she thought of it, she still couldn’t help shivering.

During the time when she was first lady, she was stable in her dressing style for a time. She always wore famous great brands which are attractive and suitable. She would choose a design team made of all American. She would wear Oscar de la Renta evening dresses on momentous occasions and change for tight evening dresses to dinners. In the daytime, she liked knitted sweater and some colorful skirt suits of less known brands.

After she entered politics, more than one picture that record her bad taste in dressing became her opponent’s attack against her. John Robinson, a competitor for New York senator of the Republican Party once said to the New York Daily News in 2007 that have you ever seen her photos before, I wonder why Bill will marry her. When asked about these photos, Hillary just smiled simply and said she wanted to destroy them.

After leaving the White House, Hillary said she was in her worst dress when she put herself into garish dress. Then she changed her dress theme into a series of tapered pants and had her hair cut short. Some public maintained she wanted to testified something or she worried her female character would affect her official career. But her changes were not shared by many.

When she became secretary of state, she did not get rid of being pointed in dressing. Some typical dressing was the orange suits she wore when visiting Barbados and the braid white when visiting Burma.
Maybe Hillary did once wear many wrong clothes, but she did one thing right, that is facing scoff and criticism with a self-deprecating attitude rather than strict diplomatic language and a hard line.
