New York’s Junior senator Kirsten Gillibrand is hot. Don’t take our word for it, Senate Majority leader Harry Reid said so a couple of weeks back. The thing is let’s say she is quote/unquote “hot”, does it make her a political fashion icon? It’s not like she’s been in Vogue…wait… she has. In Vogue’s November issue she strikes a pose for photographer Norma Jean Roy, in the magazine’s piece entitled “In Hillary’s Footsteps.” Gillibrand replaced New York senator Hillary Clinton and is cruising to a victory come November 2. The fashionable senator is being positioned as a powerful member of a lessened democratic majority post November 2.
Gillibrand is shown balancing work life and family life in the series of photos, while also running a campaign. The Vogue issue is on newsstands now.
