War of the Wardrobe Between Tim Gunn and Hillary Clinton

Tim Gunn’s Guide to D.C. Style  

The fight over the debt ceiling may be getting all the headlines in the media these days.

However, a battle between a prominent Washington figure and a TV personality is turning out to be more entertaining than the mind-numbing debate over trillions of dollars.

On a recent appearance of  Lopez Tonight, Project Runways’ resident fashion expert, Tim Gunn, critiqued the honorable Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton, not for her diplomatic skills but for her ability to negotiate her wardrobe.

After suggesting that Clinton’s fashion sense needing some re-adjusting, Gunn added: She’s the Secretary of State, she’s the former senator of New York, she’s the former first lady, why must she dress that way? I think she’s confused about her gender with all these big, baggy menswear tailored pantsuits. No, I’m really serious. They’re unflattering.”

Instead of turning his insult into a war of words, the veteran diplomat fought back by making it work in a Clintonian way. She showed up at the Norwegian Embassy in Washington, D.C. to offer condolences wearing a flattering pink jacket accessorized with a ladylike string of pearls.
