OK, so this is kind of a catch-up, but that's the Good Doctor Ferragamo yesterday performing a dueling podiums photo-op with Tzipi at the State Department. So nothing special, right? And today, predictably, was matching armchairs day, but say hello to a subtly yet noticeably altered hairdo:

I'm hesitant to call this a "new" coiffure, but there's just enough intrigue here to raise the Condoleezza Hairdo Alert System™ to the "elevated" level. You know, just to be safe. Please adjust your plans for Friday accordingly.
Oh, and I'm sure she talked about tons of boring stuff with the Vietnam guy.
UPDATE! Sorry, false alarm. This was just posted minutes ago:
