Hillary Clinton: CFDA Awards 2013 Presenter!

Posted: Updated:

What's Hillary Clinton been up to lately? Hanging with the fashion crowd, that's what.

PR agency KCD confirmed today that Clinton will present the CFDA Founder's Award to Oscar de la Renta at Monday's CFDA Awards. The news, which came via tweet, verifies rumors that started circulating earlier this week.

It will be a tad unusual to see the former Secretary of State hobnobbing at a fashion industry event; unlike First Lady Michelle Obama, Hillary was not famous for her love of designer fashion or close friendships with industry heavyweights. But she did always favor Oscar de la Renta, choosing his designs for the 1997 inaugural ball, her 1998 Vogue cover, her daughter's wedding in 2010 and the 2002 CFDA Awards (where de la Renta was her date).

In fact, last fall, the William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum announced it would be mounting an Oscar de la Renta retrospective exhibition.

And now Hillary will be presenting the designer with the Founder’s Award this Monday at the 2013 CFDA Awards. We think it's safe to assume she will wear Oscar de la Renta to do the honors. Stay tuned for photos!
