Chelsea Clinton’s Wedding: 10 Things We Hope Happen

Generally, I’m not that enthused about weddings. But if I got an invite to Chelsea Clinton‘s wedding to Marc Mezvinsky, I’d be there in a second. After a year of speculation, new details have finally emerged about the mega-party of the summer. It looks like it’ll be happening on July 31st. While people thought it’d be taking place on Martha’s Vineyard, it now appears that Chelsea will be tying the knot in upstate New York at the estate formerly owned by John Jacob Astor IV, an amazing spot that has 50 acres of land, a facade modeled after Versailles, indoor tennis courts and a marble pool. Chelsea is going to rock an Oscar de la Renta gown, but, beyond that, we don’t know a whole lot about what’ll be going down. [Huffington Post, NY Daily News]

Since the Clintons are being super-secretive, we have no choice but to speculate. After the jump, check out a few things we hope happens on Chelsea’s big day. Keep reading »

Would You Rather … Be Restricted To Gaga Or Hillary Clinton’s Wardrobe For The Rest Of Your Life?

Welcome to Would You Rather, a game in which we concoct hypothetical style dilemmas and ask you to choose which option’s worse.

Today’s challenge: Would you rather be restricted to Lady Gaga or Hillary Clinton‘s wardrobe for the rest of your life. In a nutshell, the pants-less vs. the pantsuit. To consider: Lady Gaga probably has nothing in her closet even remotely normal, whereas Hillary’s uniform of lady pantsuits is all about the mundane (except for that bright orange one, which is horrifying). So, essentially, you’re choosing between a life of looking completely conservative or completely offensive. Which one’s it gonna be? Debate it out in the comments below. Keep reading »

Quotable: Gloria Steinem’s Not Surprised Hillary Clinton Isn’t President

“I do think Hillary Clinton‘s candidacy changed the atmosphere. I never for a moment thought a woman could win. It’s too soon. But I do think that her candidacy made it possible for many more people to imagine a woman president. How she got up every morning and took that much punishment, I don’t know. She was so strong.”

Today’s Lady News: Hillary Clinton Might Be Dunzo In 2012

  • Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she would not serve another four years if President Obama is reelected in 2012, because she hopes to slow her pace and do more writing and teaching. “The whole eight [years] — that would be very challenging,” Clinton said. “It’s a 24/7 job and I think at some point, I will be very happy to pass it on to someone else.” [Telegraph]
  • Gay groups are psyched about President Obama’s vow in his State of the Union Address last night to get rid of the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. [ABC News]

Hillary Clinton: “We Cannot Accept The Ongoing Marginalization Of Half The World’s Population”

No one can deny Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been a longtime, committed supporter of the rights of women and girls globally—especially the right for women to plan their pregnancies. Clinton spoke this afternoon at the International Conference on Population and Development on the 15th anniversary of its historic Cairo summit, when 179 governments adopted a program to level out population and development by addressing gender equity and reproductive rights.

I listened to Secretary of State Clinton’s speech live on C-SPAN (watch the video here) and teared up. Here’s a (rough) transcript for some of the points she made. Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Hillary Clinton & Sarah Palin, The World’s Most Admired Women

  • I’m not surprised that according to a recent Gallup poll, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is the most admired woman in the world (16 percent), but I am surprised that she nudged ahead of Sarah Palin for that position by just a hair (15 percent). Three women in the top five are all African-American—Oprah, Michelle Obama, and Condoleezza Rice. For reasons totally beyond my comprehension, scorned golf wife Elin Nordegren not only pops up in the top 10 but is tied with former poet laureate Maya Angelou. [Gallup]
  • A woman born in South Africa is more likely to be raped in her lifetime than to learn how to read. The mistaken belief that sex with a virgin (even if that virgin is a child) will cure HIV/AIDS is partially responsible for the “rape epidemic.” [BBC]
