So Michelle Obama is no stranger to ‘Best Dressed’ lists; an icon in every which way including her fashion choices, there’s no doubt she’s a girl’s girl. A woman’s woman. Powerful, inspirational. Proactive, progressive. A woman who retains her own identity and shines an individual entity even when linked to her husband. She is Michelle Obama first, First Lady second. (The ultimate power couple – Barack and Michelle.)
How she manages to be so appropriately dressed whilst pushing boundaries – a forward step for the First Lady role – is incredible. A little vest for a playground outing with her daughter, a pastel cardigan to meet the Queen, a one-shouldered (gasp!) gown at a stuffy White House dinner, a stunning McQueen in red for the state dinner with the President of China.
I-con-ic. So very.
Her Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards outfit is hardly a surprise, then, given her previous wardrobe choices. I’d expect no less – it was more so a jaw-dropper. A sartorial jaw-dropper and then some. What a femme, clad in a shimmering Wes Gordon houndstooth tunic over gunmetal Helmut Lang skinny jeans and patent, pointy-toe pumps.
Tell me she looks good.
I thought so.
