Quotable: Designer Says Michelle O Is No Jackie O

“Everyone compares her to Jackie O — she is not the next Jackie O.”

– Designer Douglas Hannant commented at Tobi Rubinstein Schneier’s House of Faith & Fashion discussion, which literally produced gasps from the audience. In fact, his words caused such a stir that after the fact, his “people” felt compelled to issue another statement from him:

“I did say ‘Michelle Obama is not another Jackie Kennedy and I do not consider to be a style icon.’ But in addition, I also said ‘She has so much more to her and has mass appeal. I admire her as a role model and think she will achieve great things in her position as First Lady.’ And by the way, I voted for Obama.”

Well alrighty. [Huffington Post]
