The Girl Crush Continues

February 27th, 2009

I keep hearing Stevie Wonder … Isn’t she lovely?

You gotta love her!

The official portrait of first lady Michelle Obama taken in the Blue Room of The White House.

Dayyyym. Our First Lady is hot! I mean, she is a classy and lovely woman and we can all learn a lot from her.

Political blogs are going to freak out about her wearing another sleeveless dress. (She’s amazing and it’s cool to have a stylish First Lady and all, but OMG sleeveless!) Give me a break! Lady’s got taste.

Shoot, I’m starting to think she loves her biceps as much as America does. And I love that particular cut, where it narrows a bit at the shoulders. If you’ve got great shoulders (and Shelle does), it really shows them off.

Can I call her Shelle? How did Barack Obama land her? Oh yeah, his smile. Oh wait, that’s how he got me.

What do you think of the pic?

Kadi.

P.S. Seriously, on some Photography 101 ish, that curtain jacks up the whole composition. Don’t make people look like they have curtains/trees/etc. growing out of their heads. And photoshop the wrinke out of her dress and the flower blocking her hand. All three irk me. Now I’m off to do some push-ups. Some.

Michelle Obama: The Dress Was Dreamy

January 21st, 2009

Was Michelle Obama’s Jason Wu the gown of our dreams?

Maybe not, but she looked stunning.

Michelle’s dress, I loved it. I think it’s pretty and looks pretty on her.

I also thought it was very, very safe choice and a lil’ boring. It was nice, but nothing  breathtaking. Out of all those sketches, an all the options she must have had, I just hoped she’d pick something more … you know, hotter.

It was one step away from a regular, silky little black dress. Something brighter, or with a bit of glitter detail would have been nicer to me. Oh well. There’s always four years from now. Sigh.

What did you think?

Plus, more fashion looks from Michelle’s inaugural weekend. Her daytime suit was stunning. Don’t you agree?

Kadi.

What Should Obama Wear?

December 22nd, 2008

He’s almost too cool to be President.

Michelle Obama’s January 20th threads may still be the hot topic, but rest assured all eyes will be on Barack Obama on the big day, which is expected to draw from 1 million to 4 million people to Washington.

Michelle Obama: Who Will She Wear?

December 5th, 2008

I’d give anything to babysit for this family.

The pressure is on. Designers are sketching up a storm, hoping our First Lady-elect will choose their design to wear during Washington DC’s inauguration festivities.

Michelle Obama

I’ll be in the mix, and I’m totally excited to see what the Obama clan will wear come January 20th. I’m sure Malia and Sasha are going to be too cute for words.

These sketches are gorgeous, and Michelle Obama is model-gorgeous with amazing classic taste. She looks beautiful in the more tailored, structured pieces she wears.

Not Beyonce. Not Rihanna.

December 1st, 2008

Behold. A boot named Obama.

Politics aside, I want these.

Obama boot

Politics considered, I want these, but only so I can say stuff like “I’m wearing my Obama boots today.”

The modest-heeled boot named after President-elect Obama is called the Obama piombo and is described as a “gorgeous rich mottled grey leather high shaft boot with decorative tonal stitching curves along the height of the shaft.” Umm, yea.

I Die. D-Dayum, Mr. President!

November 7th, 2008

He’s not wearing a suit. Can he do that?

I still can’t believe he will be our new President.

Barack Obama

It makes me so excited just to look at him. He’s young, attractive, African American, brilliant, charming, handsome, courageous, eloquent, intelligent, well-mannered, likeable, cool, amazing …

Yup. Nope. Nothing fashionable to say here … Although, those are some immaculate Aasics.

I posted the pic because I miss him. Is anyone else suffering from lack-of-Obama exposure? His news conference today gave me a small fix, and this pic helped.

Anyone?! How much does it take to be a White House intern?

Seriously. I love this guy, and I want to send him a Redskins cap.

Kadi.

I SOOO Totally Heart Michelle Obama

November 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!

Michelle Obama

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.

Barack Obama

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.

We Did It! Way to Go, America!

November 5th, 2008

I Have a Dream is now A Reality

Hello, all. It’s a beautiful day.

Barack Obama

“A new dawn of American leadership is at hand.” He is so Presidential.

Freakin’ beautiful. I am so proud. His speech filled me with so much joy. I didn’t think it was possible to contain this much happiness.

This is the most romantic country ever.

Solid! Solid as Barack!

November 4th, 2008

I’m so excited. I think I just peed a little.

Ever get the feeling the entire world has its fingers crossed?

Deep breath …

Beyonce

With Election Day here, it’s now time for the big push! We all have to do our part today to push Obama up the mountain. We’ve been given a second chance to reverse the past 8 years and do things right this time.

PLEASE VOTE!

Solange Wears Best Shirt Ever

September 19th, 2008

Just when I thought I couldn’t love the girl more.

I don’t care so much for liquid leggings, but I’m loving this look. And was there any doubt as to who Solange would vote for? I love her and her shirt.

Solange Knowles

My heart flutters whenever I see or hear somebody supporting my man.

Muah. I still love you Breezy and Common. Y’all understand, it’s crunch time.
