Kemal Harris, who also works as Robin Wright's stylist, offers a few ideas to the presumed presidential candidate: "I don't want to change her wardrobe. I want her to change the world!"

With Robin Wright's stylist Kemal Harris pulling double-duty as her costume designer on the third season of House of Cards, first lady Claire Underwood is getting the Jackie O treatment. Wright's wardrobe still is extremely fitted and tailored but with a shock of color (after two seasons of monochromatic tones) and that much-talked-about Ralph Lauren silver gown. When it comes to giving presumed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton styling advice, however, Harris demurs: "I don't want to change her wardrobe. I want her to change the world!"

Harris recommends a rally-ready burgundy two-piece she designed for Wright on the show (Harris custom-makes about a third of Wright’s looks).

The stylist likes this Michael Kors pre-fall look for travel on Air Force One.
