They made it Instagram official. Former Secretary of State and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and pop darling and fashion entrepreneur Katy Perry recently reminded the world they have each other's back even post-election, via a fashion connection.
Late Monday night, April 10, Perry let her Instagram followers know that they could snag her spring 2017 collection at 25 percent off for a few more hours—including the shoe she designed and named in honor of Clinton, "The Hillary." And Perry featured a photo of none other than Clinton herself modeling her namesake shoe to drive it home.
The Hillary is a suede pump with a 3.5-inch (practical!) Lucite heel that is inlaid with sparkling stars and moons. They're a far cry from the more traditional footwear Clinton is usually spotted in.
"Step in and reach for the stars in this dreamy" shoe, the product description on The Katy Perry Collection website notes—in what is perhaps the most efficient and optimistic means of describing one woman's repeated attempt to break the ultimate glass ceiling.
The shoe spot isn't the first time Clinton has appeared on Perry's Instagram feed. Perry shared an image of the two together after Clinton presented Perry with the Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award at the UNICEF Snowflake Ball last November, shortly following Clinton's electoral college loss.
The singer also campaigned for Clinton, and regularly posted pictures from the trail and showing her support for Clinton's candidacy.
Modeling also seems to run in the family. Clinton's nephew, Tyler, just signed with IMG Models. Perhaps the whole family will emerge in Perry's next ad campaign?
