Helping To Put Things In Context: Something You Should Know About D.C.
Everyone knows Washington, D.C. for being the nation's capital where decisions are made that affect the country itself and impacts the world at large. But between the time that politicians and special interest groups like to use the city as the reason for all that ails America, it has a more intimate side. This is the side that one could think of as the "local" aspect of the city. I think if people understood what really exists within the boundaries of this diamond shaped (minus a complete side) metropolis, their perspectives may be altered considerably. As AWashingtonWoman will continue to focus on some of the wonderful women who make up the fabric of the DMV (a term used for the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area and includes: the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia), we will also strive to give you a little of the backstory, as objectively as we can. So it's been a year since this all began and without really trying, this blog has exceeded what our expectations were. So we are thinking that with a little love and a lot of integrity, we can share some real true insight which can be entertaining as well as informative. Who knows?.... Maybe it will even be ..... helpful.

Tim Gunn Offers Constructive Critism For AWW Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
Style guru Tim Gunn, Project Runway, appeared on "Lopez Tonight" Tuesday night and was in rare form. I absolutely love his humor and he served it up like on a fashionista can. During his interview George Lopez asked what Gunn's opinion was when it came to several politicians and celebrities. The responses were hysterical but biting and though he had nothing but praise when it came to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, she was spared no expense. Apparently he isn't at all a fan of her pantsuits. But I think that the Secretary of State will probably take it in good humor because Gunn isn't the first one to give her a hard time about her outfits.
Just last month German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who also loves herself a "good pantsuit" poked fun at the two leaders attire inclinations by presenting the Secretary of State with a framed Associated Press photo from the Frankfurter Allemeine newspaper (pictured above) which was taken during a visit last April. When presenting it the Chancellor suggested that it "you may take it in a playful mode".
Most importantly, Tim Gunn was clear and pointed in his praise for the Secretary's political accomplishments and activity. In that arena he had nothing but good things to say. And that's what really matters and I think he knows we all know this.
And yet a style expert has to be true to his mission so..... AWashingtonWoman is making a predicition. Here goes "pantsuits just took their official exit off the walkways of Fashion Week by next year".
