"I can understand (trousers) are comfortable but she's a woman and she is allowed to show that."

Donatella Versace offers Hillary Clinton (bad) fashion advice.

"She should treat femininity as an opportunity and not try to emulate masculinity in politics, Versace said."

Agreed. Bad advice. Versace clearly hasn't seen Hillary!'s legs. They best remain clothed, for all concerned.

What would Donatella say if Hillary dressed like this?

Meade said...

Whaddaya mean bad?

It could be part of her charm offensive. I picture Bad Boy Billy blowing sax behind ZZ Top with Hilary dancing, not unlike Prince's Super Bowl chicks, in short skirt and thigh high boots.

I'm charmed already.

Meade said...

...offensively charmed.

Off to a good start today Ann. Let's see if we can fling mud on 10 non-Republicans today, about things 99.99% of the people could care absolutely less about. I'm thinking another non Pelosi story, 2 more Hillarys, 1 Obama, 1 Kerry, 1 more Edwards, and cap it off with whatever links to your righty friends might have come up with to fill the void. Yay.

A woman wearing skirts is bad fashion advice?

First men can't wear shorts, now women can't wear skirts? Professor Althouse, what do you have against legs?

In the words of Cole Porter:

In olden days a glimpse of stocking
Was looked on as something shocking,
But now, God knows,
Anything Goes.

Jesus, Naked Lunch (no thanks, I already ate), you are so brain-dead that it would be laughable if it wasn't so annoying. Ok, ok, we know that your mommy didn't like you very much and that it makes you feel better to fixate on Althouse and deliver your puerile retribution, but enough is enough. You're a scratched record, you're a mono-worded parrot, you're a Philip Glass string quartet with two less notes, you're Groundhog Day without Bill Murray.

In other words, your shtick is old. Scram.

Back to Hillary! Please, Hillary!, you might want to consider the consequences before you take this woman's fashion advice...

Naked Lunch said...

Palladian, actually I think I'll stick around, but thanks for caring. Was I interupting something profound, like Pelosi botox joke or something? Sorry I offended your delicate sensibilities.

Meade said...

Hey Naked Lunch,

In the “ frozen moment when everyone sees what is at the end of [your] fork,” it appears you lack fiber in your diet.

Palladian said...

NL, I think that you had botox, but they pushed the syringe in a little too deep and injected it into your brain...

Pelosi can get as taut-faced as Linda Evans for all I care. She's boring.

Ann Althouse said...

"Please, Hillary!, you might want to consider the consequences before you take this woman's fashion advice..."

LOL. What's more presidential than camel toe?

Tim said...

"What's more presidential than camel toe?"

Camel toe and presidential?

Are we talking about Jessica Valenti again? But wasn't that about her breasts, instead?

Bissage said...

Camel Toe???!!! I had to go back and look again. I thought that was a skinny dude.

Now THAT was funny.

Camel toe? Geez--I just googled that. ewwww.

Reax to Donatella pic:
POWERS: That's not a woman. That's a man, baby!

Hmmmm, maybe she has something there after all.

vbspurs said...

""I can understand (trousers) are comfortable but she's a woman and she is allowed to show that."

Oh yeah. Totally.

Where was Donatella when Dr. Angie Merkel was running for the Chancellorship of Germany? I mean, have you seen her? The last time she wore a dress, the Beatles were still together.

And I see that Donatella isn't giving any fashion tips to whom might just be the first female President of France, this April 2007:

Ségolène Royal

Of course, Hillary could never outdo Madame Royal (heh) sartorially.

For one, picturing Senator Clinton wearing a babydoll, unlike Ségolène , is just oh so very wrong, on so many levels.

Sure Donatella, help out your pal Hills.

Leave Merkel alone to endure neckrubs from President Bush.

Cheers,
Victoria

Hey said...

Hillary! has legs that pants were invented for. My yacht club is full of ladies of her age and beyond who look great in short skirts. But you have to know your limitations, and Hills' legs are definitely one of hers.

Hillary! and Pelosi are taking a much better path than Katherine Harris by going for pantsuits - very elegant ones on Pelosi - rather than over glamming things and going for skirts. If you look like Barbara Amiel (Lady Black, google as you bear) you can wear anything (ok well anything from Chanel, St. John, etc) as long as Donatella would never be caught dead in it. Donatella's been caught dead to rights so many times on SNL... she's a parody of a pardoy.

vbspurs said...

Hillary!

Heh.

The phoney-ecstatic exclamation mark at the end, like Yahoo! and E! Television, really suits Senator Clinton.

It looks like a walking marquee above her, as in:

Garbo! Talks

Cheers,
Victoria

Victoria: Are you saying she's faking it?

Shouldn't we ask Bill? :)

Cheers,

Scott Ferguson said...

I actually think M. Versace's advice for Hillary is pretty good -- especially the part about her dressing in black instead of blue.

She could push the envelope further. Black pumps with 4 inch heels. And a riding crop.

Here’s my fashion advice. Hillary wants to be President of the United States and there’s nothing wrong with that. But many Americans harbor lingering doubts that she’s got the makings of a true leader. Hillary needs a fashion look that assures the timid and worrisome that she’s got the right stuff to take command of the oval office. She needs to show she feels comfortable wielding great power. She needs this timeless ensemble.

vbspurs said...

She needs this timeless ensemble.

Wow, is it me or does Hillary actually look hot?

Oh, wait, that's not her body? Never mind, although her face in that pic is very Shelley Hack, circa 1971.

Cheers,
Victoria

vbspurs said...

Gosh, Victoria, do you think he has any fresh data on that subject?

Are you saying that it's been a very long time since Bill and Hill hooked up?

BTW, didn't get the swollen lip reference. Must be a marrieds-thing.

Cheers,
Victoria (spelt my name right this time)
