I fell in love with the colorful fit and flare coats Michelle, Malia, and Sasha Obama wore to the presidential inauguration, and now I’m dying to get one of my own to wear for important events in my non-presidential life, such as going grocery shopping. If you want to join the the fit and flare party too, click through for 10 cozy coats in fun, feminine silhouettes…
We’ve long been a fan of quirky, sort of out-there American designer Thom Browne, so it’s pretty great to see him get pop culture recognition — on the presidential inauguration stage, no less. The outrageous sportswear designer has been a fan of putting models dressed as lobsters on the runway in the past, but is versatile enough to design clothes that the FLOTUS loves, too. Take a look through his most recent collection, and tell us if you’d wear Thom Browne, too.
Darn those Obama ladies for dressing warmly on an ice cold day and making it look easy. The First Family pulled out all the stops for the Inauguration this morning, with the First Lady wearing a Thom Browne coat and dress, a Reed Krakoff cardigan, J.Crew belt and shoes, and a Cathy Waterman necklace. Malia, 14, is also wearing J.Crew and Sasha, 11, is wearing Kate Spade. Michelle’s mom Marian Robinson didn’t get any style credits, which is a shame, because she looks pretty toasty too! [BuzzFeed]
Michelle Obama is a national treasure. A woman who’s intelligent, kind, poised and stylish, our FLOTUS is a woman worth looking up to. And whenever we actually grow up, we hope to be just like her. So today, in honor of her 49th birthday, we’ve put together a little post of some of our very favorite MObama gifs. Click through to enjoy. Keep reading »
With apologies to Jackie O, I think Michelle Obama is the most stylish first lady this country has ever had, and her fashion choices just keep getting better. Case in point: the stunning Michael Kors gown she donned for the Kennedy Center Honors last night. With its glittering gold fabric and jeweled neckline, it’s a little edgy and totally elegant. This right here, folks, is an iconic fashion moment. Check out another pic of Mrs. O’s amazing dress after the jump! Keep reading »
This weekend, the Barack Obama Facebook page posted this picture of the first couple attending a Veteran’s Day ceremony. My friend Molly immediately sent me the link along with the message, “What is Michelle wearing?! I want it!” I did some sleuthing (and by “sleuthing” I mean I went to the awesome website “Mrs. O,” which tirelessly chronicles all of Michelle’s fashion choices, and typed in “striped sweater”) and found out the photo is actually from last year, and the divine Miss O’s sweater is a Sonia Rykiel creation that’s no longer available. Sad, yes, but I found three other fabulous sweaters that feature hearts and stripes, and the best part? They’re all less than 100 bucks. Get the shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »
