Hillary Clinton's Hair Clip: Hot or Not?

Sometimes, I really feel sorry for Hillary Clinton.

Our secretary of state never claimed to be a beauty queen. She simply set out to become a politician, and managed to achieve the highest level of success in her field (short of the presidency).

So why can't people stop talking about her looks?

Clinton's latest hair clip, which she wore during a meeting on Sunday with Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere at the U.N. headquarters, is causing a stir across the blogosphere, as the fashion police attempt to "bust" Madame Secretary for her apparent fashion faux pas.

The New York Daily News called the hairstyle -- an up-and-down 'do in which both sides were pulled up into one of those grabby clips -- a "more severe" look than Clinton usually wears. Many Huffington Post readers found it "too casual" for a U.N. appearance. And The Daily Mail said it simply "doesn't cut it."

"Mrs. Clinton’s hair was scraped back and clipped on top of her head, but looked lank and in need of some love and understanding," the British tabloid wrote.

But at least one media insider -- Kathie Lee Gifford, who can certainly relate to being made fun of -- jumped to her defense.

"She's busy and hair is not first on her list," Gifford said on the "Today" show.

Bravo, Kathie Lee! It's about time someone pointed out the obvious. Who cares what Hillary Clinton looks like? Does anyone critique Barack Obama for his choice of attire (other than that one pair of "mom jeans")?

Let the woman do her job without having to worry about looking like a fashion plate every day. And as a matter of fact, I think she looks quite pretty for a 62-year-old.

    Ah, the nastiness never fails. When someone disagrees with you, you insult them. You're such a good little conservative. Now go kill some puppies and eat babies.

    It's not the woman's physical looks that bothers me; it's what's in her head and in her heart with which I have a problem...jms

    Someone tell her that she ain't 20 anymore.
    Hell, she ain't even 50 anymore.

    People have got to stop doing this to all women in office. It is what she does not what she looks like that matters. Maybe you all need to look up Madaliene Albright and get over yourselves.

    Maybe we should discuss Obama's grey hair it is equally as relavent to ... NOTHING.

    Maybe its the picture, but she doesn't look good. With all her money, she should be able to hire a stylist. ( Oh, crap, I forgot, she's too cheap. I keep forgetting she refuses to pay for her failed presidential campaign and so had a fund raiser so dumbies could pay it off for her, and I did hear a rumor that they didn't pay a cent for Chelsea's wedding-that, too, was paid for by others.) That clippie thing is just too casual for that suit and for her job. Sorry, Hellary, it just doesn't work for you.

    It matters why?

    Because she's representing the United States, and she's supposed to look NICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Loctia Ava Ale... 2010/09/22 05:04:42
    Representation is from your words not your hair.
  • Ava Ale... Loctia 2010/09/22 23:06:50

    Would you go somewhere representing your employer not looking your best? I'm not trying to be argumentative, I'm just saying that you should always look your best when you are out representing your employer
  • Loctia Ava Ale... 2010/09/23 00:16:32
    "Best" in terms of hair and face is subjective. She's wearing a suit and she at least did something with her hair. There's only so much some people can do.

    But Obama takes all the money for his excesses and doesn't leave anything for her. So what's a girl to do? For all the money that B.O. spends you'd think he'd let her bring her hair stylist, I agree with you. But he's got other ways of spending money and wants her to look bad. Just a consideration.

    Perhaps if she hadn't pulled it back so severely it may have looked a little better.
  • kurosaki-kun 2010/09/22 03:57:41 (edited)
    Probably the only one who thinks this but I don't care. I like her look without the bangs. She is smiling and she looks happy so don't really care what other people think if I were her. I don't think she looks bad. Don[t really recall seeing a lot of pics of her looking like that. There's a smile for the camera for the press and media but to me here she looks genuine.

    I think her hair stylist slept in:::: A bad hair day, on the wrong day...
  • JCLadybug 2010/09/22 03:38:48
    I like her hair pulled back...but I think she would look better with some bangs (of some form).
  • NatAlex23 2010/09/22 03:36:41
    Yes, it was a bad hair day. Yes, even the most powerful women in the world have them. She's a politician not a model. I'm pretty sure no one ever voted for her because of her hair, and I HIGHLY doubt that Obama picked her to be secretary of state simply because she could pull of a good look. Let's get over it now, shall we?

    I am with you on this and I never liked Hillary. I don't know why females are so scrutinized as to their looks and males are NEVER talked about in these terms... so sexist.
