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.
There’s an interesting reason for her reluctance to submit to the scissors until this year though. "She said she couldn’t do it then because when she arrived in a foreign country and asked for a hairdresser, Homeland Security would have to check the person out.’ De la Renta explained.
In other words, long hair was much easier for Clinton to style by herself. “But doesn’t she look fantastic now?" Well Oscar, we’d have to agree.
