Fabulous Fashion Advice: Michelle Obama and the dress January 21, 2009

So the dress was designed by Jason Wu, a relatively new talent in the fashion world.  I was very impressed that she chose someone of little reknown…it’s SO refreshing to have a First Lady that actually cares about fashion and doesn’t settle for looking like a PTA mom.  The gown was stunning and you can see a pic HERE.  When I first saw it I thought it was cream but it turns out it is a light pale yellow.  It’s beautiful.  I had someone say that she needed to dress her age…are you kidding me??  What?  Just because she is in her 40’s means that she has to dress boring?  Because that’s what you are saying…she is 28 anymore…she should dress like a soccer mom.  NO!  NO I say!!!  ONWARD FASHION!!!!  Can you imagine the gall of someone to say that she should dress OLDER???  They are HIGH!  She looked stunning and elegant.  I was very proud as I know millions of americans were!  We ARE going to see GREAT fashion moments from Michelle Obama.  The Inauguration and Inaugural Ball is the first of many GREAT moments in her fashion life!  I’m excited to watch her style develop!  So here’s great piece of fashion advice…if you want to dress like an old lady and if you want to have NO style at all…do exactly OPPOSITE of what Michelle Obama does and you will have succeeded!  REMEMBER…BE FABULOUS!

Fabulous Fashion Advice: Michelle Obama November 18, 2008

First of all…this is NOT a political forum.  This blog is about FASHION and anything else I deem FABULOUS!  With that being said…I think that Michelle Obama has great fashion sense…well her team of stylists rather.  She always looks great!  I’ve heard a lot of people talk about her becoming an icon like Jackie O….well those are rather big shoes to fill and I think it’s quite a stetch to think that ANYONE could be as much of an Icon as Jackie O.  BUT…I do think that she is on her way to making big waves in the fashion community.  She’s always very elegant but in a new way.  It’s a modern take on and old style of dressing.  I just think she is a very classy lady and that we could all take a page out of her book and try to be as classy as that.  I, just like everyone else in the fashion world, can’t wait to see what she wears to the Inaugural Ball.  There have been many great moments of fashion at the Inaugural Ball…Jackie Kennedy for example or the gown First Lady Taft wore in 1909.  I know that it will be quite a show and Im excited to see what choices she makes.  I just hope that we don’t put her so high on a fashion pedastal that we are totally devasted if she happens to make a huge fashion DON’T.  Let’s pray that doesn’t happen.  REMBEMBER…BE FABULOUS!!!
