Last night, Michelle Obama eschewed the Republican National Convention for Late Night with David Letterman. Unlike her previous appearances, the First Lady opted for a dark ensemble — a full-skirted black frock, noir bow belt, and matching pumps. That Michelle — always so chic and classic.
High on the list of things you shouldn’t do on national television unless you can handle the potential for embarrassment: Asking First Lady Michelle “Gun Show” Obama if she can do more push ups than you can.
Believe it or not, Michelle Obama is celebrating her 48th birthday today, and as we like to do with other fashion icons, we’d like to take this opportunity to wish her a very happy birthday.
If you’re having dinner with the president of South Korea, may as well wear a dress designed by someone of Korean extraction, right? That’s exactly what happened when Michelle Obama showed up at the White House state dinner with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak and First Lady Kim Yoon-ok, wearing a custom dress by Korean-American designer Doo-ri Chung.
So this is an interesting image. Normally regal-looking First Lady Michelle Obama went shopping in Alexandria, VA yesterday. But she didn’t go to any fancy boutiques or even to a big department store. Instead, she spent some time walking up and down the aisles at one of our favorite mass-brand markets.
What’s black and white and red all over? First Lady Michelle Obama watching day 12 of matches at the US Open.
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?
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.
It’s actually kind of hard to deny that first lady Michelle Obama is the best-dressed woman on the campaign trail — and she’s not even running for office. The first lady has been hard at work in recent weeks and months pushing for individual Democratic congressional and senatorial candidates, as well as doing her part to raise money for the Democratic National Committee. Her wardrobe of fun yet professional and feminine clothing serves her just as well in Connecticut as it does in California.
No one loves Michelle Obama more than we do. But for the sake of the United States’s international supremacy, we’re going to need her to get a tattoo. We vote for a ring of the names of members of her family around her right arm.
The inner lover of questionable fashion choices in us was pulling for Japan’s Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyamto to come out of his sartorial scandal unscathed. But we definitely had less of a stake than the ladies at Vogue who spent big bucks to shoot a story on Miyuki Hatoyama, the PM’s wife, for their August issue.
