Hillary Clinton sported the original cold-shoulder dress to her first state dinner as First Lady in 1993. She told Lena Dunham in a recent interview that she loved that dress, designed by her friend Donna Karan, and chose it to have a bit of fun with her style but, “Like everything I do it turned out to be controversial.”
Apparently it was also considered a loser for Donna Karan, who says her design was panned by Women’s Wear Daily back in the day. Fast forward 23 years and the cold- shoulder dress is all over the runways this season.
Two women ahead of their time.
It’s the California primaries today – best of luck to Hillary Clinton.
