First Lady Michelle Obama came to Washington a year ago with an agenda: settle her family into a new life in the White House, focus attention on the challenges of the work- and family-life balance and reach out to military families.
But it's her wardrobe choices that seem at times to draw the most attention and media coverage. From belted cardigans to sleeveless sheath dresses and bold-statement jewelry, Obama's style has been celebrated for its innovation and reflecting her age, 46, and her role as a working mother; functional yet fashionable, classic yet affordable.
The first lady's style is "incredibly modern," Washington Post fashion editor Robin Givhan said.
"She looks like someone, a very stylish person that you would meet, you know, in a business setting, in a restaurant, just on the street," said Givhan, author of the book "Michelle: Her First Year as First Lady."
"She looks like someone that you would know as opposed to someone who looks like there's a wax statue of her somewhere."

EYE of the BEHOLDER... if SHE is Fashion, I’d like to Gouge my EYES OUT with a RUSTY SPOON.
Haiti..dums imploding...and what does ABC talk about. the Wookies clothes.
Could Karen’s nose get any browner?
..she dresses like she’s uneducated despite her degrees...I see this all the time at my wife’s job...she’s a college professor...in the academy, it’s quite common to see women with PhDs who dress like hicks.
The MSM News is in a race to the bottom, and ABC is in the lead.
Michelle wears the ugliest clothes I have ever seen. Sometimes I really believe her fashion adviser is a Republican!
Re: the last sentence where the writer says MO isn’t like a wax statue...
There’s a story on MO and Zero’s wax statues today on FR.
“working mother; functional yet fashionable, classic yet affordable.”
How many working mothers have $500+ tennis shoes and $9000 handbags?
“Passion for Fashion” = VANITY
Done by the first sentence and before the not so subtle W jab.
How dare you ungrateful wretches cast brickbats!
I am overjoyed that Michelle is such a bold yet nuanced fashion bellwether.
Oh dear, my time in the library internet room is up but thinking about our glamorous 1st couple will keep me warm in my cardboard box under the overpass..
I live in a building filled with professional women. Working on Wall St. in the Fashion Industry, and various other endeavors.
I have never ever seen anyone of them stuffed into a too small cardigan and I have never seen anyone of them wearing one of those boob belts.
Not a one!
Working mother? What job does she have again?
“reach out to military families. Mission accomplished.”
Not if my troops are any gauge. Laura’s still Mama.
Sycophants cannot stop the Obama adoration while the US burns while he fiddles.
My two favorite snarky blog comments on The First Clydesdale?
( Hattip to Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler, who, if anybody cares, is a black guy himsef’ )
“I ain’t hittin’ on any chick that wears the drapes & furniture...”
“Accessories? That dress needs end tables...”
When there is a Michelle Fashion piece, "COMEDY ALERT" should be posted and pictures required.
We should be able to have archives of belts and too-tight sweaters as well as puke related color schemes for fun and interest!
Oh ye Michelle doubters! Vast flotillas of Chinese container ships are even now headed our way with newly manufactured Boob belts for the masses!
Biggest a$$ in the white hou$$$e and not getting crediiiiit for it
**Her favorite accessories include laser crossbow and bandoleer.**
And her boob belts.
