Even in the era of high-def TV, Henry Kissinger would never have had to explain his makeup habits.
But release one photo of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wearing her glasses and just a little lipstick, and—BAM!—everyone seems to take note.
Clinton, who was photographed without a full face of makeup at a recent press conference in Bangladesh, tells CNN she’s “relieved” to be at her current stage of life.
“Because, you know, if I want to wear my glasses, I’m wearing my glasses,” she tells the network. “If I want to wear my hair back, I’m pulling my hair back. You know at some point it’s just not something that deserves a lot of time and attention. And if others want to worry about it, I let them do the worrying for a change.”
Memorize that quote. We’re making it our new mantra.
