Senator Kirsten Gillibrand might be a rising star in Washington D.C., but that doesn’t mean she can’t take a moment to enjoy herself at New York City’s Fashion Week. Indeed, she was spotted by Women’s Wear Daily in the front row of a Carolina Herrera show yesterday morning.

“I love Carolina’s history in terms of dressing First Ladies, being part of our culture over the last several decades,” Gillibrand said to the publication. “I think it’s important to come show my support for her specifically, and I personally really admire her designs. They’re ones that I can definitely wear.”

Ms. Gillibrand came as a guest of Vogue‘s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. Vogue notably gave Ms. Gillibrand fashion credentials in 2010 when she was glowingly profiled and stylishly photographed wearing Michael Kors pieces.

Ms. Gillibrand’s outfit yesterday was by yet another elite designer, Elie Tahari.
