Maureen Dowd penned a column speculating about former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's political plans, published in the New York Times April 7. While full of intriguing insights, why, oh, why did Dowd have to dish about her hair?
"Hillary jokes that people regard her hair as totemic, and just so, her new haircut sends a signal of shimmering intention: she has ditched the skinned-back bun that gave her the air of a K.G.B. villainess in a Bond movie and has a sleek new layered cut that looks modern and glamorous."
Shimmering intention? K.G.B. villainess? Bond movie?
Dowd also informed us that Clinton was wearing a hot pink jacket and black slacks.
Still waiting for the day when coverage and opinion about powerful women doesn't always include a fashion statement.
