First Lady Michelle Obama Page 1
First Lady Michelle Obama made a good call yesterday when she slipped into a blue and red dress by French (turned American) designer Sophie Theallet for the Fourth of July.
Far be it from us to tell First Lady Michelle Obama what to do with her look — clearly, she’s doing just fine on that front all by herself! But we have noticed that she looks really good in a shorter version of the bob she’s currently sporting, which prompts us to ask: Why won’t you just cut your hair, ‘Chelle?
Another day, another stellar look from Michelle Obama. The first lady joined President Obama last night at the Pritzker Architecture Prize ceremony, where she wore a purple (or navy blue?) dress from Coach creative director Reed Krakoff.
In case you’d forgotten, today is Mother’s Day! Hooray, moms! And while we’d love to celebrate impossibly stylish mothers all over the globe, we ended up scrapping our original plan to personally wish every mother on Twitter a Happy Mother’s Day after realizing it wouldn’t be very practical. And then we went with this, a gallery of the fashion world’s most stylish moms.
Rachel Roy found herself sitting in the same room as the president, first lady and scores of important Washington people on the night of the White House Correspondent’s Dinner. We emailed with Roy after the dinner to get her take on dressing for the event, what she thinks of the first lady and what the president can do for the fashion industry.
If there was ever any doubt that First Lady Michelle Obama is an incredibly important player in the American fashion industry, the fact that the Council of Fashion Designers of America released an official statement about one of her outfits should clear it up.
Tonight’s State of the Union address will no doubt be an important event for politics, journalism and policy and media minders around the country and across the globe. But what the fashion industry is most concerned about is the message first lady Michelle Obama‘s outfit tonight will send — or whether it will, or even should, send a message at all.
