Hilary Clinton’s former aide Huma Abedin was pictured stepping out for New York Fashion Week, where she sported a neutral assemble to brave the snow falling on the city to catch Ulla Johnson’s Sunday morning show.

Abedin wore a striped, loose jacket and gentle smile as she appeared in public days after her ex-husband Anthony Weiner’s announced the launch of his new radio show.

The 45-year-old – who recently released her tell-all book Both/And: A Life in Many Worlds – attended the Astor Hall event with actresses  Sarita Choudhury, Katerina Tannenbaum and Sofia Black D’Elia. 

Choudhury,  55, is an English actress who most recently played Seema on the Sex and the City spinoff, And Just Like That.

Abedin appeared at ease during the event, which was held to give fans a glimpse of Johnson’s Fall 2022 lineup.

Although best known for her political work, Abedin is also ensconced in the world of high-end fashion and has frequented the circles of Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour for years. 

Just days after dumping her sex pest husband in 2016, Abedin hosted a fashion show with Wintour to benefit the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton. She and Wintour hosted a total of three fundraisers for Clinton that year, including one in Paris.

On Sunday, she appeared polished in an understated look during her return to the fashion scene, and accessorized her outfit with brown suede pumps and hoop earrings.

As Abedin returned to the runway sidelines, her ex returned to the spotlight with the launch of a new radio show with Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa  called ‘The Left Versus The Right’ 

Last December, Abedin revealed she knew her marriage to Weiner was over after a photo of him sexting in bed next to their sleeping son went public.

In an interview with CNN‘s Dana Bash to promote her new book, 45-year-old Abedin revealed she weathered years of her sex pest husband’s scandals before filing for divorce in 2017.

Her perspective on the doomed marriage changed after a photo emerged in 2016 of Weiner lying next to his then-four year-old son. In the snap, Weiner is lying shirtless on his back, showing off a bulge in his white boxers. 

‘I did kind of reach my breaking point,’ Abedin said. ‘For so long I was saying, I don’t understand why can’t you just knock it off. This was my final straw.’

The photo – the third sex scandal for Weiner – prompted an investigation from child services during a time when Abedin was traveling extensively as part of Clinton’s presidential campaign team. She said she was questioned by social services workers about whether the situation might have been avoided if she was a more ‘present parent.’ 

‘I was one of those working mothers who constantly felt torn between leaving for a campaign trip and taking care of my child and I think a lot of working mothers can relate to what that feels like that,’ she told Bash.  

‘It was one of the hardest things I’ve had to endure in those closing days of the campaign.’

Although they’re now divorced, Abedin said she’s had to push her animosity toward Weiner aside to best co-parent their son Jordan, now 10. 

‘I tell my son I love him so many times a day, I want him to feel that he is loved, that he is cherished, that he is supported,’ she said.

‘I do believe a lot of anger we don’t understand in adults, so much of it goes back to the experience they had as children. For me, my single most important job is parenting this little boy.’

She said although he’s likely not yet aware of the magnitude of the scandals, the boy was previously taunted after Weiner was sentenced to 21 months in November 2017 for sexting a 15-year-old North Carolina girl. 

‘When Anthony was sent away, [our son] was teased a little bit about that but he’s really handled it well,’ she said. ‘We do know that, we’ve shared things with him and we will continue to do that, as you know, he ages in an appropriate way. 

‘We believe we should always be sources of truth for him.’

Before filing for divorce, Abedin stood by her man – who she married in 2010 – through two previous sexting scandals that she said forced the family into hiding. 

‘The first few years of Anthony and I living in this together, I felt as though we were in a bit of a bunker,’ she said. ‘There was the outside world [but] I wasn’t sure who I could trust or who I could  talk to.

‘It gave you a a sense of insecurity; I would read about things I had supposedly told friends in confidence.’ 

Weiner, then a New York congressman, was a rising political star until May 2011, when a photo of a man’s crotch was sent from his Twitter account to a young student. 

The Democrat at the time claimed his account was hacked, but in June of that year tearfully admitted that he took and sent the crude image.

Weiner destroyed his political career through a series of sexting scandals, but Abedin stood by his side until the third strike

More intimate Weiner selfies emerged later that year as Abedin was pregnant with their son, who was born in December 2011.

The scandal died down and in 2013 Weiner made a run for New York City mayor, claiming he was a changed man. He led the polls until a second scandal broke after his ex-partner Sydney Leathers sent compromising pictures of him to thedirty.com.

The misconduct didn’t just ostracize Weiner; it also hurt the reputation of his wife, she said Sunday. 

‘We were both shunned from certain society events,’ she said. ‘We were both asked to not show up at charity and food bank. It increasingly led us to be in this isolation together.’
