Clinton Wore $12,495 Jacket During Speech on Income Inequality

Despite focusing on income inequality on the campaign trail, Hillary Clinton is no champion of the middle class. In fact, while addressing this very topic during her New York primary victory speech in April, she was doing so wearing a Giorgio Armani jacket that costs $12,495.


Via the New York Post: 

The polished outfit was a stark contrast to the fashion choices Clinton has made in the past. As first lady, Clinton wore frumpy pastel skirtsuits. As New York senator and secretary of state, she attempted a more serious look, wearing pantsuits in a rainbow of colors — so mocked that they sparked memes. […]

But now, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, whose dowdy and matronly style has haunted her throughout her entire political career, is making her first real effort to play the fashion card. She’s upgraded the designers she wears, opting for high-end European labels, and hired a team of image experts that includes former Michelle Obama aide Kristina Schake, who’s been tasked with shaping her style and making her more relatable. She’s even rumored to have “Veep” makeup artist Barbara Lacy on the payroll.

Her transformed wardrobe has obviously come at a cost. The New York Post estimates that based on the number of new items she’s been seen in during the last year, and given that they’re now designer labels, Clinton has probably spent at least $200,000 on clothes for the campaign trail. 


According to LA-based political image consultant Patsy Cisneros, Clinton’s new makeover has been an attempt to be more natural. And because of that, she’s hardly attracted much attention over it. 

“The fact that her fashion choices have been functional rather than glam has let [how much she’s spending] go under the radar,” image consultant Lauren Rothman told the Post. “What got Sarah Palin in the end were her flashy fashion choices.”
