Carla Bruni And Nicolas Sarkozy Kept The Queen Waiting While They Were Gettin’ It On

Randy, across the pond rumor alert! A new tell-all book alleges that French First Lady Carla Bruni told Michelle Obama that she and French President Nicolas Sarkozy once kept a “senior Head of State”waiting because they were busy shagging. Many people suspect that super important person was actually the Queen of England. Oh no, she didn’t! But that makes us wonder — if Bruni only told MObama this sexy tidbit, how did writer Jonathan Alter find out? Has Michelle been gossiping?! [The Sun] Keep reading »

Mobama Is, Like, Obsessed With Monique Pean

With Earth Day quickly approaching, it’s time to devote your attention to nature. Whether you’re one of the smart few who regularly works to keep our planet healthy, or you’ve just become inspired as of late, it’s important to recognize those who marry their talents with their passion to save the world. One jewelry designer who’s always given her attention to Mother Nature is Monique Pean. And she has some major support, in the form of Michelle Obama. The designer started her career in finance, but realized her passion for jewelry and launched her own line in 2005, with a major focus on staying socially responsible and eco-friendly by using conflict-free stones only. Monique won the 2009 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund and the 2009 Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Award for Accessories, partnered with Charity:Water, and supports the No Dirty Gold campaign — proving that her talent is one to watch, for both her message and gems. In the time she’s been creating, she quickly she gained the love of MObama. Recently, the First Lady was spotted in Mexico City, practically dripping in jewelry by Monique Pean. Check her stuff out here. Keep reading »

Lady Gaga Beats Out Anna Wintour As Style Influencer of the Year

Lady Gaga better watch her back. Her recent win in a Time.com poll about the most influential people of 2010 has meant quite a few snubs for other fashion folk. Among them are Michelle Obama coming in at 14 and La Wintour herself all the way down at 122. If we know anything about Anna, though, she’ll be staging a coup and clawing her way to the top. Who would you back in a style cage match? [The Cut] Keep reading »

Michelle Obama: “Before I Was Who I Am Today, I Was A Nerd”

OK, that’s not a real quote from the First Lady. But it is what Michelle Obama‘s character on “The Simpsons” said when she stopped by Springfield to assure Lisa Simpson that it’s OK to be smart. Damn, why couldn’t she have stopped by our elementary school to defend us from social ostracism? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Dress Like Michelle Obama, For Way Less

It was only a matter of time before someone wanted to capitalize on the First Lady fashion effect, and when it comes to doing it accessibly, K-Mart has turned out to be that retailer. If your wardrobe aspirations include looking just like Mobama, head to K-Mart and pick up either a copy of her J.Crew blue skirt or a close replica of Thakoon’s prints, at a price — $13 and $6, respectively — that is extremely affordable.

The First Lady Should Wear Chain Mail Stockings

Nearly a year ago, we blogged about designer LaQuan Smith and his chain mail stockings. Now, none other than Vogue‘s editor-at-large, Andre Leon Talley, says First Lady Michelle Obama needs to go out and buy herself some LaQuan fashions. So, who’s this designer you may have never heard of? Well, he’s 21, African-American, and his grandmother taught him how to sew when he was 13. “She gave him a sewing machine and he made his whole collection in his grandma’s apartment in Queens,” reports Talley. Seeing as Lady Gaga and Rihanna have already jumped on the LaQuan bandwagon, it’s only fitting the First Lady should follow suit, no? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

The Obamas Talk Education In Essence Magazine

When asked how he and First Lady Michelle Obama handle educating Malia and Sasha, President Barack Obama responded: “Malia will tell you, my attitude was, if she came home with a B, that’s not good enough because there’s no reason why she can’t get an ‘A’…” Obviously, they take grades very seriously, but as a former honor student, who sucked at chemistry, I can tell you that sometimes the effort is more important than the grade. You can read the rest of their interview in the March issue. [The Young, Black & Fabulous] Keep reading »

How The First Lady Gets Dressed


We think it’s hard enough to pick out something to wear to go to work, so we can’t even imagine what it would be like to be the First Lady and really have to think all of your outfits through. Apparently, Michelle Obama doesn’t do it all on her own, she tells the “Today” show. She has help (which she only refers to as “people,” but we imagine they are stylists), and they often pick out a week or even two weeks of outfits. If we could plan that far ahead … we’d have so much more time for other things. Check out her interview with Matt Lauer—the fashion goodies start at 2:26. [Today Show] Keep reading »

Scott Baio Disses MObama And Feels The Wrath Of Everyone

I bet Scott Baio wishes he’d left Charles in charge of his Twitter account. When he posted this nasty pic of Michelle Obama along with the punctuationally challenged sentence, “WOW He wakes up to this every morning,” the Twitterverse did not take this slight so kindly, and people instantly jumped down the former sitcom star’s throat. “People need to relax and laugh a bit,” he later wrote. Cue the death threats. One person wrote, “Easy to find your house Scottie boy and finish YOU. I am a republican and I love Mrs O.’” Another said, “A GRAND WIZARD like YOU Scott Baio should be PUT DOWN and someone will PUT YOU DOWN. YOU, your WIFE and KID.” Now, I hardly think MObama would be cool with that. [E!] Keep reading »
