It looks like former first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton might be taking a page from Michelle Obama's style book.

The U.S. secretary of state appears to have finally ditched her signature headbands and prom-worthy dresses in favor of a more sophisticated look.

Sporting a poufier new 'do, Hillary has been playing with whimsical patterns and textures, taking fashion risks (need we remind you of the embroidered flowery coat she wore in Afghanistan?), and jazzing up her classic skirt suit with a flash of gold jewelry at the March 14 Women in the World Summit.

When the Yale Law grad deplaned in Moscow this morning -- where she will push for arms talks -- HRC looked every bit the chic jet-setter in a pair of rectangular Robert Marc sunglasses (style 602, in Stone with brown lenses, in case you were wondering) that flattered her rounder face shape.

Marc's subdued, elegant eyewear -- no flashy hardware and logos here -- has attracted a loyal celebrity fan base, including Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and Kate Hudson.

Even if Hillary's labels don't include the big-name fashion designers that Mrs. O favors, such as Jason Wu, Thakoon and L'Wren Scott, we think she makes a pretty persuasive case for understated power dressing.

What do you think of Hillary's more fashion-forward style?

When not tackling political issues, Hillary is busy planning daughter Chelsea's wedding.
