Hmm...That's Not Right

POST #    1106

I think three things from the Reuters picture above:
- Why did Hillary choose that hideous color?
- Did Monica buy the tie in the portrait?
- That's an interesting juxtaposition of the guy's head in front of the painting.

Maybe Hillary was told she was wearing too many black pantsuits and she wanted to change it up. But I agree, it's a bit much. Even a cream colored suit would have been better.

ANd I love your fashion perspectives on First Ladies, Tien. You need to start a new blog all about that.

but it would have to be a "ways for the first lady to be more sexy" blog. and that's hard because what soccer mom wants to see a sexy first lady in the white house? although since they're the out demographic, who cares? i'm sure the nascar dads would love it.

In the painting, is that a cigar on the table? I suppose it's a pen, but I'd like to think it's the cigar.

Clinton's only suggestion to the artist: "Make it bigger... bigger..."

It's like "Tien's Eye for the Common Guy."

Hillary's suit is very Babs Bush, sans the shoulder pads. She needs to rethink.

haha, that's great matt.

corie, your idea is better than some of the other suggestions/thoughts i had.

Doesn't Hil's suit match Bill's tie in the painting? (Or maybe it doesn't; I'm colorblind.)

adam, i'm going to say that the color of bill's tie in both the painting and the one he's wearing are a little darker than hillary's. but all three are blue.

If only Hillary would take a page, or even a snippet from Jackie's book, she'd look so much better.
