Clinton's inaugural gowns.
Legendary fashion designer Oscar de la Renta sat down with Barbara Walters on her Sirius Radio talk show to discuss the inaugural gowns he designed for First Ladies Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush (many suspect he has designed the gown future First Lady Michelle Obama will wear later this month, but he isn't allowed to say).

Oscar said this of Senator Clinton:
You know Hillary, in a sense, is sort of very prudish about the type of clothes she likes to wear and you know from the waist up she really looks great. She feels very uncomfortable about wearing revealing kind[s] of clothes, and so we are always fighting about the neckline.
He went on to recall an occasion at a party when Hillary wore a dress that revealed her shoulders to a party, only to cover up her skin with a shawl. For the record: de la Renta was not responsible for the atrocious purple gown Clinton wore to her husband's first inauguration in 1993.

The designer seemed excited about the newest family to move into the White House:
I think Michelle Obama is a woman of the 21st century and she's a very good-looking lady. I think she's going to be an extraordinary first lady, you know.
