Polls have consistently showed the democratic frontrunner, Hillary Clinton, underperforming with young women voters. As a result, the Clinton campaign has turned to women celebrities, their hideous pro-Hillary ensembles, and other tacky Hillary swag to help rally support among millennial women.
Whether the Clinton campaign is assuming that young women voters are attracted to these feminist stars, their sequin-studded outfits, or the homemade Etsy charm, it isn’t clear. But one thing is certain: it’s all absolute fashion faux pas.
1. Katy Perry’s Sharpie Marker T-Shirt
It honestly looks like Katy Perry was about to walk out the door when she grabbed a white t-shirt off the floor of her room and wrote down the first thing she could think of with a magic marker.
2. Lena Dunham Is Not Doing Hillary Any Favors
Lean Dunham, writer, actress, and super feminist who has a history of doing anything in support of liberal candidates, has a record number of the most hideous Hillary outfits. But the accompanying dance to her Hillary Clinton cheerleading outfit takes the cake for cringe-worthy awkward.
3. Channeling Doting Grandma Hillary’s Knitting
Dunham shows off another one of her Hillary fan girl outfits, and I’m afraid it wouldn’t even pass as one of those ironically cool Urban Outfitters sweaters.
4. And Just When You Think It Can’t Get Worse
As Dunham was stumping for Clinton in early 2016, her outfits got progressively worse at each campaign stop. This photo was taken in New Hampshire, where Bernie Sanders would go on to mop the floor with Clinton among women voters.
5. Now It’s Just Weird
The Clinton social media team tries really hard. They really do. But this scary caricature of Hillary’s face squeezed onto someone’s finger is not rallying anyone.

Because nothing says “We r all in this together,” like literally hanging out inside of a t-shirt together. Actresses Jamie Lee Curtis, Kerry Washington, Lady Gaga, and Sarah Paulson stretch out “Yaaas Hillary” graphic tees together, perfectly embodying the Clinton campaign’s approach to millennial women: just plain trying too hard.
