    As the former US first couple has had a date at the world’s most famous beer festival, which comes to an end on October 7 in Munich, the ex-president in his leather shorts and a vest has attracted stares as well as local women in traditional dirndl dresses.

    Following in the footsteps of many celebrities, including Arnold Schwarzenegger and a few top football stars, Bill and Hillary Clinton have showed up at the traditional German beer festival Oktoberfest. The power couple, accompanied by a security detail, has dropped by the famous Kaefer tent, especially favored by movie, TV and sports stars, to grab a beer and have some Bavarian-style fun.

    ​According to the German newspaper Die Welt, the two got out of a black car, waved briefly, and then disappeared into the tent, where the celebration took place. Bill Clinton wore traditional Bavarian leather pants, Lederhosen as well as knee socks and a buttoned-up vest, while his wife, the 2016 Presidential candidate, preferred her brand name trousers and elongated jacket, this time in orange and yellow.

    ​According to the media, the ex-president sat next to the German Princess of Thurn and Taxis Gloria with a mug of beer in his hand. He was also spotted laughing and hugging some women dressed in traditional dirndl dresses.

    ​Former US President Barack Obama earlier voiced his wish to visit the Oktoberfest after the end of his term in 2016.
