First Lady and fashion icon, Michelle Obama, gets four more years to dazzle
Last night, President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama won four more years as president and first lady in one of the most expensive and passionate races in United States history.
Their message of hope and change apparently wooed the millions of voters who turned out to re-elect Barack Obama.
Prior to her role as FLOTUS, Michelle Obama had an impressive career and resume. Upon graduation from Princeton in 1985, she went on to attend the very prestigious Harvard Law School before joining a top firm in hometown of Chicago. And despite her perhaps intimidating credentials, after all, she was the first lady to plant a vegetable garden at the White House since World World II. And it is this sort of humble behavior we’ve grown to love, and connect with, in this first lady.
But it’s her confident and sometimes playful fashion choices we enjoy most.
Whether she’s sporting a bright colored sundress from the Gap or an expensive couture gown, Michelle Obama knows how to inspire through fashion and teaches the rest of us, sometimes less is more. There’s no doubt, the first lady transcends iconic fashion and appeals to the extreme wealthy and the bargain shopper alike. And we pay attention to what she wears often sending the fashion blogger community into a frenzy.
Here we examine her four past years of fashion choices as a first lady fashion icon and the styles she chooses most.
Michelle Obama loves dresses and wears them well. It’s rare to see her in anything but. She also loves to pair a long coat with a similar dress, creating a more polished look.
Michelle Obama also shines in jewel tones. Dark purples and blues look stunning on Michelle Obama, and the FLOTUS often chooses these colors in her wardrobe choices.
And finally, she’s the queen of baring shoulders. And why wouldn’t she?
