House of Cards S3 Fashion: What Claire Wore Chapter 31-32

So what exactly was Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) thinking when she held a business meeting in the ladies room and then proceeded to do her own, um, business in front of the Russian ambassador in Chapter 31?

According to Kemal Harris, who was the actress’ stylist on the set of season 3 of House of Cards, the First Lady was merely just trying to pay homage to a former White House resident. “Apparently this scene is based on a power play by former President Lyndon Johnson, who was notorious for asking reporters to follow him into the bathroom so he could conduct two kinds of business at once,” the costume designer said on her Instagram page.

If you liked what Mrs. Underwood was wearing during that scene — and the rest of the episode and chapter 32 — keep scrolling below!
