Clinton aide Huma Abedin wears figure-hugging dress Anna Wintour party

Huma Abedin was among the big-name guests invited to a party thrown by Vogue boss Anna Wintour on Monday night.

The 41-year-old enjoyed a fun night out, dressing up to attend a bash held in honor of new Glamour editor-in-chief Samantha Barry, which was held at Wintour’s New York City home.

Huma showed her flair for keeping up with Hollywood’s style stars at the event, donning a figure-hugging emerald green dress and peep-toe pumps.

It is possible Huma chose her bold green outfit specifically in tribute to the guest of honor; Samantha is originally from County Cork in Ireland.

Hillary Clinton’s aide — who is currently raising her six-year-old son Jordan alone while his father, disgraced politician Anthony Weiner, serves a jail sentence for transferring obscene material to a minor — had a night off from mom duty to attend the star-studded event.

She was seen by paparazzi arriving at Wintour’s home Monday evening, wearing an off-the-shoulder long-sleeve dress and carrying a metallic clutch.

She held hands with actress Sienna Miller as she walked down the sidewalk to Wintour’s front step.

Huma has regularly attended fashion-industry events since Clinton’s campaign loss in 2016, sitting front row at Prabal Gurung and Oscar de La Renta in early 2017 and joining Stacey Bendet for her Alice + Olivia presentation earlier this year.

She’s known as a bit of a fashion plate in the political world herself, frequently wearing designer dresses and coats.

For Monday night’s party, she was there to honor Samantha Barry, who was announced as the new boss at Glamour in January after longtime editor Cindi Leive stepped down. 

Wintour — who became artistic director for Vogue parent company Condé Nast in 2013 — hosted the party in Barry’s honor.

Barry, born in Ireland, previously worked at CNN, and Wintour said in a statement that she is ‘fearless like so many leaders of the moment.’

‘We recognized at once that Sam would be the perfect editor for a new more ambitious era of Glamour’s future. We cannot wait to see her vision unfold,’ she added.

Quite a few other big names, many of whom are featured in Glamour and Vogue’s pages, also came out to celebrate.
