Things got a little "Mean Girls" on Tuesday's "Lopez Tonight" when “Project Runway” guru Tim Gunn expressed his exasperation over Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s sartorial choices.
“Why must she dress that way?” Gunn asked when Lopez brought up Hill’s outfits. But then came the kicker - a dig about Clinton's dressing like a dude: “I think she's confused about her gender [with] all these big, baggy menswear tailored pantsuits.”
“No, I'm really serious,” he continued, “(They're) unflattering.”
Lopez proceeded to ask how Clinton could hide “cankles,” to which Gunn replied, the issue is hemlines. "Well, if her pants didn't stop an inch above her ankle, she could hide the cankle!"
But after all the bashing, Gunn was quick to point out that even if Clinton doesn’t “make it work” with her outfits, he does admire her political achievements.
"I have great respect for her intellect and her tenacity and for what she does for our country in her governmental role," he said. "I just wish she could send a stronger message about American fashion."
