Talk about dedication: U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton showed a stylish allegiance to turquoise blue while visiting Myanmar's president Thein Sein and first lady Khin Khin Win today. The first official visit to Myanmar by a high-ranking US representative in over a half a century, it followed a civilian government taking power in the Southeast Asian nation after almost five decades of military dictatorship.

Clad in her signature power pantsuit, Clinton embodied the timely monochromatic style trend, matching everything from her shirt to her earrings to her necklace (Hillary does not mess around). We can add this look to her recent bold fashion resume, including reviving the iconic '80s scrunchie and channeling Bono while departing Malta.

One detail that doesn't quite coordinate with the rest of her blue vision? Her cheery, bright red toenails, which stuck out during her tour of the Shwedagon Pagoda. (Per the sacred Buddhist site's custom, she went barefoot).
