What Makes Them Haute: Do you really have to ask? The former President and the current Secretary of State continually work to make the world a better place. The William J. Clinton Foundation — which works on initiatives ranging from global change and climate to health access and economic opportunities — has offices in Harlem. They are an all-American powerhouse couple.

What Makes Them Haute Now: The former President and current Secretary of State are suiting up for daughter Chelsea’s wedding. Chelsea was engaged to investment banker Marc Mezvinsky last November and the couple is rumored to be planning a July 31 wedding in Rhinebeck, N.Y. An account in the New York Times says that Chelsea asked her father to drop 15 pounds before walking her down the aisle. The guest list is said to have some of the Hautest celebrities, including President and First Lady Obama, Oprah, Steven Spielberg, and many others who won’t know where the wedding is being held until hours before the nuptials. All of the details are being kept extremely secret, so check back in for more Haute 100 updates soon to find out which designer Chelsea will wear (rumors have her donning Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang) and more on the closest thing America has to a royal wedding.
