The designer, who often dresses Clinton, and declared that she would be the ‘next president’ in his acceptance speech at this year’s CFDA awards when she presented him with the Lifetime Achievement gong, took credit for her new look in an interview with Gotham magazine. "Doesn’t she look great now? I told her a while back [when she was Secretary of State] she should cut her hair," he continues.
