Skip to comments.Pictures of Condi at Inaugural Ball?
Posted on 01/21/2005 3:37:02 PM PST by Iluvpopcrn
I heard something on the radio today about Condi looking very nice ... I thought the comment was about her being seen at the Inaugural ball, but I may be wrong. Has anyone seen anything like this?
Ping for when the pics come in...
Someone commented about it last night and said that she was wearing a beautiful red gown, but I missed her on tv. I catch a brief glimpse of her at the inauguration though, in a coat with a fur collar and a fur hat to match. She looked stunning, very sophisticated. It left me wondering why she can't look like that all the time, she'd get a lot more respect from the stupid shallow Democrats. Brilliant, talented and gorgeous all at the same time would leave them quaking in their boots. (Geez, that sounds too much like a Dan Rather saying).
didn't see any of Condi but did put up one of what I think Hillary might have looked like....wanna see?
It may cost you your lunch ...
It may even blind you......
I've been looking for some photos of her online, and can't find any. I'm sure she looked beautiful, though.
Who was that handsome man she was with during the parade?
Yeah! Dat's da ticket!!
I think Condi is very tastefully and beautifully dressed all the time...at least whenever I have seen her. You don't think so?
I understand from another thread that the man is one Gene Washington, former football player. Apparently she has been dating him for some time.
Ping for pics?
Remember what you asked me to do to the pics on websamba?
They're gone. :(
If the Democrats do not respect Condi's brains, why would they think anymore of her appearance?
Good one of the Cheney's though!!
So nice to have that love.
No Condi yet, still looking but here are the twins for the guys (dirty old men).
LOL in your dreams, stud
I agree. Coupled with looking good was her radiant glow.
Don't you EVEN post any pics of Hitlery in this thread. I do want to keep my dinner!!!
Somebody teach these girls to dress and do their hair.
On the other thread, is it revealed that the two of them say they are just friends, and that he is separated but legally married? Just wondered...
No pic yet, but here's a description....
Domingo, a San Francisco-based evening gown designer, took on the challenge of dressing Condoleezza Rice, who by now is synonymous with a succession of prim and proper suits. Rice wore a plain knit suit, rather than a ball gown, to the inaugural ball four years ago. Come on, Condi, let's play dress-up this time around.
Domingo created two looks for President Bush's long and lean confidante and Cabinet member, a black velvet sheath and a platinum silk mermaid gown.
"She always wears her blouses buttoned up to her neck,'' Domingo says, "but then I saw a picture of her giving a piano concert with Yo-Yo Ma, and she was in a strapless ball gown, and she looked great.''
He decided to put her in a very slinky black velvet gown, with a large platinum sash, or alternately, a skinny platinum silk charmeuse mermaid gown, with two thin leather strips across the bodice. "The leather strips are adventurous, sexy, the gown shows her shoulders and her figure,'' Domingo says. "I'd like to see her in sheaths, rather than in A-lines.''
The black velvet gown has a fitted bodice; two sparkly pins anchor the straps to the bodice and the waist and hips are accented with a dramatic platinum satin sash. "She really has this Audrey Hepburn neck,'' Domingo says, "if you look at pictures of her in a gown, so I wanted to show it off. And I gave her some hips by adding the sash.''
Tell me wich one if you can, I still have them on the LT- can upload "a few" for you to link.
Pray for W and Our Troops
When I read it a few posters said they had been seeing each other for a little while. Yes, someone said that he was in the process of divorcing. If they're friends, or friends who intend to date one day, great. Someone asked who he was, I was just passing on what I had read.
You just had to do that!
A Zot on all your bases.
Do we have a pic of the two of them? I don't recall what he looks like..but I do remember that he caught my eye :-) I would also like to see a pic of Condi in her dress....
Can't help in the picture department.
I have been on threads where this was discussed. FReepers in the know just said all they would ever say about their relationship is that they are friends. That it was known that he is separated, and from what I understood, all of this has gone on for a long time. Somebody said 6 yrs., or 9 yrs. - somewhere in that time span. And they have gone together to public events, but he is just a friend who is escorting her, so they explain. Which has gone on and on and on.
Had not heard the part about him divorcing.
Those girls need some fashion help. How about queer eye for the Bush girls? What is with that black belt? The blonde looks good there though. I can never remember which is Jenna and which is Barbara.
I love the color of Lynn Cheney's dress. And Laura looked wonderful, but I would have liked that same dress in a more vivid color. The white Inaug outfit was superb however. And the twin Barb always wears lite colors,,,I don't like her in those, think she would look better in more vivid colors too.
Great pics! Laura and the girls look wonderful! What a sense of style they all have!
ping for pic
I agree. Laura exuded class and grace, and Barbara and Jenna looked stylish and trendy. A great combination, and I'm sure W was very proud of having his lovely wife and daughters at his side. First Mom Barbara Sr. looked great as well!
Oh huuuurl, what'dja do that for? :)
That is such a great picture!
No, a DanRatherism would be more like "Condi was as pretty as a piece of popcorn on an old sawgrass tree."
I'd still marry them.
Of course, I'd marry anybody for a night.
I've never seen Rice when she wasn't appropriately dressed. Understated elegance appears to be her preference.
Rice is a serious person with a serious job. Looking like a fashion plate, or a Manhattan socialite, is probably not a good idea and would most likely reduce her credibility.
