19 Hillary Clinton Magazine Covers From 'TIME' To 'Vogue' That Illustrate Her Accomplished Political History
Well, it's official. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is running for president in 2016. After taking an interest in government and politics in college, Clinton made a name for herself in the U.S. government. Her impressive political career spans over two decades. She's served as First Lady of the United States during husband Bill Clinton's presidency, as a New York senator, and as the Secretary of State under Obama from 2009 to 2013. Now, she's taking things to the next level as she once again attempts to become the first female President of the United States.
Like all politicians, Clinton looks extremely well put together at all times. It just comes with the territory when you're in the spotlight all the time. Based on her, shall we say, politically correct style, I would never guess that Clinton has off-days or a bad night's rest. She always looks professional, determined, and powerful, I'm sure with the help of an amazing style and makeup team (I mean, she shares a makeup artist with the show Veep). In case you need a refresher on Clinton through the ages, here are 19 magazine covers starring the political powerhouse. Take a walk down memory lane and relieve Clinton's career, from 1992 to 2015.
TIME, September 14, 1992
This cover came out the same year Bill Clinton was elected president.
Mirabella, August 1993
Vogue, December 1998
Clinton scored a Vogue Magazine cover in 1998, while she was still First Lady. In 2013, The Huffington Post reported Oscar de la Renta convinced Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour to give her the cover.
TIME, June 16, 2003
Clinton's bright blue eyes are the focal point of this classic, portrait-style cover photo.
TIME, August 20, 2006
New York Magazine, November 13, 2006
The magazine called Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign "a historical inevitability."
The Advocate, September, 2007
Clinton appeared on the cover of The Advocate, a gay news, LGBT rights, politics, and entertainment magazine. In her interview with Sean Kennedy, she discussed the gay rights movement and the "soul-searching it’s causing many Americans — including herself."
TIME, October 20, 1997
What better way to celebrate a 50th birthday then with a Time magazine? Clinton was quoted in the magazine stating, "There is no formula that I'm aware of for being a successful or fulfilled woman today. Perhaps it would be easier... if we could be handed a pattern and cut it out, just as our mothers and grandmothers and foremothers were. But that is not the way it is today, and I'm glad it is not."
New York Magazine, June 23, 2008
TIME, November 16, 2009
Nothing says "power" like Clinton's bold red jacket and equally bold stare.
Newsweek, March 14, 2011
Clinton appeared on the cover of Newsweek's special edition "150 Women Who Shake the World."
TIME, November 7, 2011
I love Clinton's look in this cover. Her hair is out of her eyes and she definitely knows how to style a pantsuit with a ruffle top and elegant pearls.
Newsweek, February 1, 2013
Two years after being on the cover of Newsweek's "150 Women Who Shake the World" edition, the magazine named Clinton "the most powerful woman in American history." That's definitely a title to add to her resume.
TIME, January 27, 2014
I'm waiting for confirmation that this is Clinton's real foot.
The New Republic, July 14, 2014
For her The New Republic cover in 2014, three different journalists discussed "how Hillary Clinton won over the left," why more women should run against her in the primary, and the "Democrats who might actually take Hillary on."
New York Magazine, September 30, 2014
It's nice to see a political figure laughing like she's truly happy on a magazine cover.
People Magazine, June 16, 2014
The Washington Post reported this was People Magazine's worst selling issue in 2014.
Vanity Fair France, August 2014
I couldn't tell you what this cover is saying, but Clinton sure looks focused and determined.
TIME, March 23, 2015
This cover was controversial because many people thought the "M" from the publication's title looked like horns on Clinton's head. TIME admitted that this is an ongoing problem and even poked fun at itself with this jovial slideshow of other TIME covers that gave people horns.
