• Speaking of Oscar de la Renta’s role in politics, the William J. Clinton Presidential Library & Museum in Little Rock, Arkansas is staging an exhibition of his most iconic designs, curated by Andre Leon Talley. De la Renta has dressed Hillary many times; though during this election it the republican candidate’s wife who can seem to get enough of his designs. Of course, he also dressed Laura Bush and the exhibition might travel to the George W. Bush Library in Texas and the Reagan Library in California. The designer recalls giving Clinton some advice: “I said, ‘Hillary, a lot of women make this mistake, they think they are best in black. But when people see you in black they think, What a tough lady. I would dress you in pale blue and pale pink and they will think, What a sweet lady!’”
