Hillary Clinton would be so proud of all the pantsuits on the Oscars red carpet

She may not have won the presidency, but Hillary Clinton’s run for top office certainly made a mark on fashion—and that was clearer than ever on the 2019 Oscars red carpet on February 24th. Some of our absolute faves, including Amy Poehler and Awkwafina, donned glam pantsuits at the Academy Awards and won top style points (from us, at least).

From all-black to sparkling all over, these stars’ suits caught our attention—and Twitter’s, too.
