Now in style news we never saw coming -- pregnant Chelsea Clinton rocked some faux leather maternity pants on Thursday. I'm sorry, normally I try to build up to things like this, but this time I just had to blurt it. Chelsea Clinton wore pleather pants this week. Pleather maternity pants. And the most surprising thing is she looked good in them.
The former First Daughter was attending the 2014 Wildlife Conservation Society Gala with her parents, so it's a good thing those pants were faux. Although I'm not sure cattle could be quantified as "wildlife" per se, but still. Probably bad form to wear animal skin to a gala honoring the animals.
The 34-year-old went head-to-toe black, pairing the pants with a black blazer and blouse, a long necklace, and Christian Louboutin heels.
Amirite? Girlfriend looks awesome! Well, maybe not Kristin Cavallari levels of maternity wear awesome, but for Chels, it's pretty fantastic. She isn't exactly known for her stellar fashion sense.
Chelsea and her husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting their first child, which apparently is making Hillary happier than if she were the president. We're just glad that gestating this kid has made Chelsea broaden her fashion horizon. We can't wait to see how she decides to dress her little one once he or she is born.
