Hillary Clinton Wears Fuchsia Ralph Lauren Gown to Alfred Smith Dinner

More Ralph, more fun.

Could Ralph Lauren be Hillary Clinton's official designer should she become Madame President? It's certainly shaping up that way. 

For her past four major appearances, including the DNC and all three presidential debates, Clinton has worn pantsuits by the American designer. However she veered from her preferred red, white and blue color palette at Thursday evening's Alfred Smith dinner at the Waldorf Astoria in New York, choosing a bright fuchsia number instead. 

Her decision to ditch the pants in favor of a floor-length gown was a refreshing departure from her typical tailored looks, which she has worn pretty consistently throughout the campaign trail. (It was also in step with the event's black tie dress code.) The monochromatic ensemble still featured a conservative-looking collar and long sleeves that's a familiar look for the candidate.

Seeing Hillary in hot pink makes us wonder if she would go flashier and more feminine — say, at a state dinner — if she does win the election? She'll be setting the precedent for future females, after all.
