President Obama's State of the Union address last night touched on some hot button issues like tax rates, immigration, Wall street, and manufacturing, but he failed to mention one point of contention: Hillary Clinton's headband. It's like he doesn't even care, you know? Anyway, our Secretary of State hasn't necessarily been praised for her fashion sense over the years, but last night Hill was right on trend. In a sleek black pant suit, Hillary looked professional and polished. Her couple of bracelets and that black headband with a sparkle here and there really added a nice, stylish touch. These headbands, I tell ya, they are certainly having their moment in the sun.
Hill's had some fashion wins over the years, but they were few and far between. It's nice to see that she took a moment to consider her accessories before last night's address and went with something even Charlize Theron would approve. The headband made a splash on the Golden Globes red carpet a few weeks ago, and now they've made their way into Congress.
They're on a fast trajectory -- no one knows where they'll show up next. Prom's just around the corner; maybe teens will hop on board and rock the look at that oh-so-important senior dance. But before that main event, we have the Academy Awards at the end of next month. I'm sure we'll see a headband or two on that red carpet.
Until then, we'll have to take our headband fixes where we can get them, and Hillary's supply is seemingly endless. However, I hope she's burned that puffy, braided blue one she owns along with anything else that's padded head-wear; those are headbands from hell.
But if last night's choice is any indication, Hillary's headbands are back, and better than ever.
Headbands: Yay or nay?
