One hot—and inspirational—mama!
Since giving birth to her daughter, Charlotte, on Sept. 26, Chelsea Clinton has been at home getting to know her little lady. But on Monday, Nov. 10, the former First Daughter finally stepped out for her first post-baby public appearance at Glamour‘s 2014 Women of the Year Awards in New York City.
Clinton, 34, walked the red carpet in a black, sleeveless dress with floral embroidery—a look that showcased an already slim waistline. She also added metallic pumps to her ensemble for a dash of shine.
The Vice Chair of The Clinton Foundation kept her beauty look simple, though, leaving her ombre hair loose and down, and adding only minimal makeup.
Clinton’s husband of four years, hedge fund manager Marc Mezvinsky, joined her for photos on the red carpet, sneaking in kisses on her cheek.
Upon accepting her WOTY Award alongside fellow honorees, including Hollywood celebs Lupita Nyong’o, Robin Roberts, Mindy Kaling, and Laverne Cox, Clinton gave a speech that focused on her new baby girl. “This is my first night out,” she noted and laughed. “I had started to wonder if I’d ever wear a nice dress or high-heeled shoes again or have adult conversations!”
But then she got serious: “I’ve spent most of the 6 1/2 weeks of Charlotte’s life… at peace with the present and [with] anxiety about the future,” Clinton added. “Because I want her to grow up to be whatever she dreams to be and do whatever she chooses, and that’s not the world we live in today.”
Acknowledging that she has at least two great female mentors in her life—her mother, Hillary Clinton, and her grandmother, Dorothy Howell Rodham—the Stanford graduate told the audience that she wants to concentrate her efforts with the Clinton Foundation even more on women’s rights, “so that Charlotte and every little girl can be whatever she dreams and whatever she hopes.”
