Long ago I ceased being a Condi fan, except on one point. She is always impeccably dressed and has probably done more than any other woman to demonstrate the ability to remain feminine, contemporary, elegant, sophisticated, appropriate, and professional all at the same time. She should be remembered as the best dressed woman of the decade.
Look at this picture. Sexy French president showing off his chest. Casually sophisticated French foreign minister (is that a Ralph Lauren shirt?). Condi in a business suit, but it isn't the Hillary business suit (which was the cutting edge model a decade ago and remains a great choice for Hillary). That collar is contemporary and fits perfectly with the two men. The single button makes her look both now and ready to take on the world -- "everything is in order here," it says.
