Hillary Clinton, 74, said she started wearing her infamous pantsuits in the 1990s after a Brazilian company used the image of her in a skirt for a salacious lingerie ad.

“I was sitting on a couch and the press was let in and a few of them shot up,” Clinton told CBS news host Norah O’Donnell on Sunday, as she described the moment the picture was taken when she was first lady was .

“All of a sudden the White House is made aware of these billboards showing me sitting down with – I thought my legs [were] together, but the way it’s shot is kind of suggestive,” added the former foreign secretary.

The ad, which ran in Brazilian magazines in 1995, was for lingerie brand Duloren and featured a picture of Clinton accidentally showing her panties under a tight skirt during a trip to Brazil.

One full page was the image, while the opposite page contained a message from the brand to then-President Bill Clinton: “Mr. President of the United States, Your Excellency cannot imagine what a Duloren (brand) can do.

“A tribute by Duloren to one of the most important women of the decade,” the message continued in smaller type.

She was 49 years old at the time the ad went to print.

That was the moment that, as Clinton revealed in her interview with NBC, along with constantly photographing her, led to her making the decision to exclusively wear pant suits, which have become a staple of her wardrobe.

Even when Clinton was pictured in a floaty sundress at the Venice Film Festival in Italy last week, she wore a pair of leggings underneath.

She explained that after the promotional experience in Brazil, photographers tried to compensate for a slip by saying that they were among their snaps as they climbed the stairs.

“I just couldn’t handle it,” she said.

Clinton sat with her daughter, Chelsea Clinton, 42, to promote her upcoming AppleTV+ docu-series Gutsy, which premieres Friday, April 9.

After Clinton shared her story with O’Donnell, her daughter revealed, “I didn’t know that story, it’s by far the biggest revelation I’ve had.”

When the former first lady was asked during the interview if she chose to stay in her marriage to her husband after it became internationally known that he was unfaithful, she said she had no regrets.

She also said staying married to Bill was the “boldest” decision of her personal life — a nod to the name of her documentaries.

Hillary and Chelsea’s series is based on their co-authored work, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The show follows the mother-daughter duo on their adventures to feature some of what they claim are the “boldest and bravest” women alive, including artists, activists and community leaders.

Appearances include actresses Kate Hudson, Mariska Hargitay and Goldie Hawn, as well as comedian Amy Schumer and women’s soccer player Megan Rapinoe.
