See if you can spot Obama’s Secretary of State at this gathering of the G20 in Los Cabos, Mexico. It’s hard, so take your time.
It is the fear of every party guest, turning up in an outfit not suited to the dress code.
And unfortunately for Hillary Clinton, her slip up was witnessed by top government officials from across the globe.
Wearing a lime green shirt, the Secretary of State was placed in the middle of the foreign ministers – all dressed in crisp white shirts – for a G20 ‘family photo’ in Los Cabos, Mexico.
But rather than adding a red face to the fashion faux pas, Clinton appeared to be tickled by her choice of outfit, laughing with her fellow leaders as the photographer snapped away. And perhaps Clinton’s colourful choice was intended to make an impact on the special occasion – she is in Mexico for the first G20 Ministers of Foreign Affairs informal meeting.
The gathering is an opportunity for the U.S. and other G20 members to discuss how to boost sustainable development, food security and the international economy, among other issues. The Department of State said: ‘This visit is an opportunity to reinforce close relations among nations and to identify common objectives and strategies to address global challenges and ensure global prosperity.’
Unfortunately, Clinton’s wardrobe choice meant she looked far from ‘at one’ with her international counterparts.
