I have [number redacted] pictures of Condoleezza Rice around here, and she’s always wearing simple but severe pumps. As Secretary of State, she just didn’t go beyond that. (Well, once in a while, maybe.) But it seems that Dr Rice, having escaped Diplomatic Hell, can relax a bit these days:
The shoes are okay, maybe a little better than okay, but the dress is what everyone’s looking at, and the trick, I think, was getting the bow to exactly the right size. (Another couple of inches and it would have made her look paunchy.) Oscar de la Renta scores again.
Speaking of the Secretary of State, has anyone seen Hillary lately? I mean, really. She’s faded faster than Sue Storm facing Dr. Doom.
