Yeah, we know -- when Bill Clinton and "magic fedora" are mentioned in the same sentence, your first thought has got to be, "Is that a metaphor for something?"

And maybe sometimes it is. But at the GLAAD Awards on Saturday, April 20, a fedora was just a fedora -- and our former president looked quite dapper in it. So dapper, in fact, that stunner Charlize Theron wanted in on the action.

Also not a metaphor. (Damn, people.)

First, here's Bill wearing the fedora.

He took a photo with Charlize backstage. Because he's not stupid.
