Guess who also wore red tonight? Clearly not merely a shade reserved for the GOP, Michelle Obama, the ever-so-stylish First Lady that America will enjoy for the next four years (!), wore a repeat deep burgundy Michael Kors dress to support husband Barack Obama at his victory speech tonight.
Try as we might, we (and by we, we mean the fashion community at large) simply can’t convince First Lady Michelle Obama that what she wears has an importance beyond making her look good and covering up what needs covering up. So when she sat down with reporters for lunch at the White House this week, she shooed away the suggestion that her wardrobe is any different from any other American woman’s. “Clothes are just the thing you wear to do the stuff you need to do,” she said.
Because god forbid anyone miss out on the press frenzy that is (well, at this point, was) Michelle Obama’s State Dinner dress by Alexander McQueen, Sally Singer dropped by Morning Joe today to throw her opinion into the mix. And while we normally think Singer walks on water, not only do we disagree with her opinions, the editor in chief of T: The New York Times Style Magazine didn’t even have her facts straight.
The White House rolled out the red carpet last night for a state dinner welcoming Mexican President Felipe Calderon and his wife Margarita Zavala, but the best part of the evening might have been First Lady Michelle Obama’s absolutely stunning, sparkling, and cerulean blue gown designed by Peter Soronen.
