Lookbook of the Day: Michelle Obama

For as long as the Obamas have been in the White House, and long before then even, the media has fixated on First Lady Michelle Obama's status as a fashion icon. Unlike other First Ladies before her, she has fully embraced: colors, asymmetric cuts, unknown and rising designers, *gasp* sleeveless dresses/tops, smart accessories, and my favorite store in the world, J.Crew. She has a modelesque figure and she's not afraid to show it. Everytime she steps out into the public, it's a frenzy to figure out who and what she is wearing. As a fashion lover, I love every minute of it. NYMag has put together this slideshow of every outfit she's worn since inauguration, which will be updated daily (or whenever she makes an appearance). My personal favorite is the Kai Milla green dress she is wearing in the picture above- her hair, the dress, the shoes, everything works. I LOVE HER!
