The essential Amanda Hess gets right to the heart of Robin Givhan’s departure from the Post by assembling a collection of her nastiest snipes at the way people — mainly women — dress. Among the hilari-terrible results:

On then-United States Senator Hillary Clinton, upon the revelation of a hint of cleavage on the Senate floor: “It’s tempting to say that the cleavage stirs the same kind of discomfort that might be churned up after spotting Rudy Giuliani with his shirt unbuttoned just a smidge too far. No one wants to see that. But really, it was more like catching a man with his fly unzipped. Just look away! . . . To display cleavage in a setting that does not involve cocktails and hors d’oeuvres is a provocation. It requires that a woman be utterly at ease in her skin, coolly confident about her appearance, unflinching about her sense of style. Any hint of ambivalence makes everyone uncomfortable.” BONUS DEEPLY UNFLATTERING COMMENTARY ON HILLARY CLINTON’S CLEAVAGE: “unnerving.”
