Time magazine’s David Von Drehle and Pulitzer Prize-winning fashion critic Robin Givhan discuss When Fashion Meets Power in the sixth and final offering of the 2013 Dateline: Washington series.

As fashion critic for The Washington Post and now Newsweek and The Daily Beast, Givhan has generated controversy about what politicians wear, saying of one Hillary Clinton outfit, “Just look away!” She criticized Vice President Dick Cheney for wearing a green parka: “I don’t want to be represented by someone … who looks like he’s at a Green Bay Packer game.”

Dateline: Washington is co-presented by the Kansas City Public Library and the Truman Library Institute. The series is made possible by grants from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation Legacy Fund.
