Oscar de la Renta Reveals What Hillary Clinton Will Wear to the Inaugural Balls

Hillary at a fancy event in November.

There's no way we'll find out what Michelle Obama's wearing to the Inaugural balls until Tuesday night. But! At least we know secretary of State designate Hillary Clinton will wear an Oscar de la Renta creation. The designer revealed to Barbara Walters on Sirius Radio that Clinton will wear a pink-and-gray dress with embroidery (we're betting it's custom — drool). De la Renta is one of Clinton's favorite designers, and though he's dressed her on many occasions, he said they still bicker about her showing more skin:

“You know, Hillary, in a sense, is sort of very prudish about the type of clothes she likes to wear and you know from the waist up she really looks great. She feels very uncomfortable about wearing revealing kind[s] of clothes, and so we are always fighting about the neckline. I do remember one time, we were at a party at the Metropolitan Museum and she was wearing, for the first time, something very, very open and then all of sudden she arrived with a big, huge shawl over her shoulder. And I kept pulling the shawl down, and [she] kept pulling it up because she felt uncomfortable about showing her shoulders.”

Oh, Hill. Oscar is a friend to women. Trust in him as you've trusted in your variously hued pantsuits. Do not, however, trust in headbands that look like blonde hair.
