Michelle Obama ...Setting Trends and Influencing Style
Trending in the news again is Michelle Obama. Kate Betts has put together a fashion piece in her book, Everyday Icon, giving us a peak at Michelle Obama's fashion pieces as she's toured the world setting and influencing fashion trends.
The First Lady of Fashion
It's obvious to all of us that Michelle Obama is no ordinary woman. She's African American, almost six feet tall, intellectually confident and turns heads whenever she enters into your sphere. But there's a new book on the shelves, Michelle Style-Celebrating
The First Lady of Fashion, by Mandi Norwood and it's all about Michelle Obama's Style of dress. It gives us, the readers, a walk down memory lane of her Fashion Statements during and after the campaign of her husband, President Obama
Personally, I like the way Michelle Obama has given the Fashion Industry something to strive for. You've got a Real woman dressing in Real clothes and adding a sense of creativity and wonderment every time she steps out into the public.
She takes chances with her wardrobe choices and has taken elegance to a new level. She's not Jackie O, She's Michelle O, two different women with different styles and different taste.
We Welcome the New Fashion Icon, Michelle Obama.
