I SOOO Totally Heart Michelle ObamaNovember 5th, 2008
Who was the First Lady-elect wearing? Narciso Rodriguez.
Blue was the hot color for the fashion industry this election season …
… And Red is the color of a winner!
When Obama said, “The new First Lady, Michelle Obama,” that’s when the snot and tears really started to flow.
Was I the only one crying while scanning Michelle’s outfit the entire time? Designers, not to mention the rest of the world, will be keeping a close eye on the Obamas. That said, she’ll have plenty more chances as First Lady to rock her fabulous tastes.
Yes, it was truly an historic night as the First Family-Elect took to the stage at Grant Park all dressed in red-and-black. Michelle Obama chose Narciso Rodriguez, wearing a sheath dress from the designer’s Spring 09 collection.
She paired the dress with a black cardigan and kitten heels, adding a touch of sparkle with diamond trinkets. She nailed it. Sheath dresses accentuate your height, figure and legs.
My mom didn’t love, but I thought she looked beautiful. And it looks really great in photographs, which, I believe, was most likely the point.
Yes, it would have been nice to see the dress without the cardigan … The addition diminished the hourglass effect created by the diagonal bands. Oh well. Love it or hate it, this dress will forever be apart of history.
It will be refreshing to have a First Lady with a progressive sense of fashion. Michelle is beautiful inside and out, strong and so smart.
Am I the only one who liked the dress? I was so glad it was not a damn shiny suit.
I love her and I loved her dress.
Just imagine all the designers creating mood boards today over the idea of making her inaugural gown. Lucky, lady.
