A Sketch in Time: Valentino
Valentino's suggestion for The Clintons.
Valentino: Best known for helping Sharon Stone dress the part of the glamorous Hollywood star, this Italian designer puts Hillary Clinton in a one-shoulder navy chiffon gown with an embroidered corset of white stars. He also envisions her showing a lot of leg with his high side slit. (We'd rethink that idea.) Chelsea Clinton wears a red chiffon gown with lace insets on the bodice and a chiffon train. The president again wears a basic black tuxedo, but Valentino has accessorized it with a shawl representing the American flag and an Indian headress. Well, it is Clinton's last term. What's he got to lose?
