The Fashion Designer Behind America's Most Powerful Women

Nina McLemore is the secret fashion weapon behind the world's most powerful women. INSIDE EDITION got a behind-the-scenes look at the designer and her company.

Nina McLemore is the go-to designer for many of America’s most powerful women.

Hillary Clinton has worn her suits and so has her potential rival for president, Senator Elizabeth Warren. PBS anchor Gwen Ifill also wears Nina. When best-selling crime writer Linda Fairstein appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers, she was dressed in Nina. Former Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has also worn Nina.  

McLemore told INSIDE EDITION’s April Woodard, "There’s sort of this club out there that talks about their Nina’s and how many Nina’s they have."

Woodard spoke to McLemore at her showroom in New York, where she showed me some of her trademark outfits.

“They have standup colors, generally, and they're bright colors,” said McLemore.

Woodard even wore one of Nina’s classic jackets during the interview as she asked, “Describe the Nina woman.”

McLemore responded, “She is powerful. She is interesting. She wants to look chic and elegant.”

Woodard then asked, “Is she running for president in 2016?”

McLemore smiled and said, “She may be!”
