Our First Lady of Style


Michelle Obama has certainly gotten some press lately with her alleged “lavish vacation” to Spain (hey, everyone needs a holiday right?!). But whether you’re Obama fans or not, you have to admit, our first lady is tres chic! I’ve been following her different looks on The Cut:NY Mag. Whether it be gardening in J. Crew and Converse or meeting a Queen in Moschino, she is always put together in something stylish and interesting. Unlike the past few first ladies who consistently looked like they were about to walk into a boardroom no matter where they were going… boring! But not Mrs. Obama. She is bold and adventurous with mixing colors and patterns. She’ll wear a belt by Sonia Rykiel, leather jackets by Rick Owens, and dresses by young designers such as Peter Som and Jason Wu. She has a few signature looks such as bow or ruffle collars and wide belts around her waistline. Here she is looking elegant in J. Crew. Just how does she do it?
