Hillary Clinton was formally outfitted for Variety‘s Fall 2022 Power of Women event. Held in Beverly Hills, the occasion honored the accomplishments of numerous women across different fields.
Clinton arrived for the occasion with her daughter, Chelsea, wearing a black evening suit. Her ensemble featured a black pantsuit with long trousers, as well as a round-collared jacket with thinly beaded sleeves atop a pale pink and orange blouse. Completing Clinton’s ensemble were natural pearl earrings and a matching necklace. For footwear, Clinton finished her ensemble with black leather heels that featured triangular pointed toes, giving her outfit a sharp and decidedly formal air.
While speaking onstage, Clinton notably discussed the striking down of Roe v. Wade legislation, women’s safety in Iran and the importance of optimism.
“My late friend and predecessor as secretary of state, Madeline Albright, was once asked if she was an optimist,” Clinton told the audience while onstage, according to Variety. “She said, ‘Yes. I’m an optimist who worries a lot.’ Let’s be optimistic but take our worry and channel it into action.’”
Variety‘s Power of Women event honors female leaders for their contributions to different causes.
