Clinton called the dress “one of her favorites” in an interview with Lenny Letter in Oct. 2015, explaining that it was also pretty controversial at the time.
“I do love to fool around with fashion and have some fun with it. And so I wore this, and a lot of the political pundits [said]: ‘What is the meaning of this?’ and everything. I thought it would be fun! You’ve got to still have fun in all of these different roles that you’re in or I’m in or anybody is in their life. So this was one of my favorites. It’s in the Clinton library, if anybody ever wants to see it.”
White House Black Market told The Huffington Post in a statement that while it sees “the similarities” between the dresses, the new one “was not created as a direct nod to Hillary.”
Still, we think Givhan’s tweet pretty much speaks for it all. Sigh.
