Hillary Clinton helped steal the Met Gala spotlight even before the first cocktails had been served, making a splendid entrance in a deep wine-colored off-the-shoulder gown with long sleeves. But it was the detail that was particularly meaningful to her: Designer Joseph Altuzarra suggested embroidering impactful words into the dress, and Clinton responded, “What about American women in the past who have inspired me,” per YouTube. So a close look at the former U.S. Secretary of State’s dress reveals the names of 60 powerful figures, including Harriet Tubman, Sacagawea, Rosa Parks, Madeleine Albright, Shirley Chisholm, Abigail Adams, and Clinton’s own mother, Dorothy Rodham.

The gown and its significance wowed many in the Twitterverse. “Lovely gown. She should have been our President,” said one fan. Other comments included “Beautiful!” “Stunning!” “Gorgeous!” “Lovely” and this one: “OK, are you kidding? I couldn’t love her any more. She looks gorgeous in that dress, that color, but the inspiration???” 

Not everyone was sold on the look or the woman wearing it, however. “Little Red Riding Hood,” sniffed one dissenter. Another joked, “She looks good even if she is wearing a table cloth.” One commenter was totally unimpressed: “i really just opened the met gala livestream to f***ing hillary clinton being there and looking a drab raggedy mess.” And conservative author Brigitte Gabriel simply yawned, “I could not care less about what dress Hillary Clinton is wearing to the Met Gala.”
