Rediscovering her Yale look …
Hillary Clinton, at age 64, has decided that she really doesn’t care what other people think about her hair, makeup and choice of eyewear.
With a 65 percent approval rating … seriously, why should she?
A long time has passed since her days at Yale University, when she shied away from any type of glam look. That all changed some years later when her politician husband Bill Clinton decided to leave Arkansas behind and run for the highest office in the land.
The brilliant Hillary was spiffed up for the campaign and kept right on being buffed and fluffed during their two terms in the White House. Then there was that successful tenure as U.S. Senator from New York. Smart suits, perfect hair and makeup.
She followed that up with an unsuccessful bid against Barack Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination but did score a dream job as Secretary of State.
Throughout most of this period we saw Hillary looking stylized and camera ready … and then suddenly people thought she was looking very, very tired.
Clinton decided in 2011 that she would return to the private sector in 2013 rather than serve a second term. With that decision came the gradual shift from perfectly coiffed to a more casual … ‘what you see is what you get’ approach.
Hillary recently took some heat for what many described as an unkempt look during a high-profile visit to Bangladesh. As is her typical outspoken style, Clinton said, “I feel so relieved to be at the stage I’m at in my life. If I want to wear my glasses I’m going to wear my glasses. If I want to pull my hair back I’m pulling my hair back.”
Rock on Hillary!
