“Clinton chose however to tie her scarf behind her neck, which added volume to the neckwear behind her head just a few days after some speculated that she may be wearing a back brace. Clinton’s look was also remarkably similar to the one she displayed on Thursday in Melbourne. There she wore a stretch wool crepe jacket in blue once again that extended to the knee along with slacks and kitten heels.
The jacket was a custom creation from Nina McLemore, and she finished the look off with an $1,100 cashmere-blend shawl from Hermes. And earlier in the week it was a fuchsia coat and yet another over-sized scarf for the first stop of the speaking tour in Auckland.
Clinton’s decision to wear a custom coat and repeat a look from last week will no doubt only fuel rumors that she has been wearing a back brace.
The protrusion seen through Clinton’s jacket last week that led to speculation
She has been exclusively wearing large scarves and 3/4 length coats ever since she suffered a hairline fracture in her wrist during a trip to India in March
It was the photos of Clinton wearing her jacket last Thursday in New York that first caused the speculation about a possible brace because of an odd protrusion which appears to be seen just below her neck. I recently noticed Hillary’s new predilection for wearing scarves around her neck. Now she appears to be wearing some sort of back brace,’ noted another individual.
‘Before that she was wearing a cast on her arm and before that she was wearing a boot. Is Hillary falling apart before our eyes?’ And on Friday, one person commented: ‘Hillary Clinton spotted wearing yet another massive scarf after earlier photos showed she might be trying to hide a back brace.’ Clinton has been pairing scarves with almost all of her looks ever since she returned from India, where she suffered a series of falls that eventually required her to seek medical attention. She was treated for a broken wrist during that trip, which her spokesperson said was the result of a fall in her hotel bathtub. Hillary’s tumble in the tub was actually her third fall of the trip, with the first two coming in Mandu as she struggled to maintain her footing while heading down the steps of the Jahaz Mahal Palace on Monday.
