  • WashPost: Michelle Obama’s Departure Ends ‘Singular Era for American Fashion’

    11/24/2016 1:18:50 PM PST · by PROCON · 133 replies ^ | Nov. 24, 2016 | Scott Whitlock
    What would Thanksgiving Day be without more gushing over the Obamas? The Washington Post on Thursday declared That Michelle Obama’s “departure from the East Wing signaled the end of a singular era for American fashion.” The piece by Robin Givhan contrasts with the writer’s bashing of the looks of conservative women such as Carly Fiorina, who she mocked as a “style bully.” Regarding Mrs. Obama, Givhan fawned, “She helped young people see that fashion is more than catwalk extravaganzas and ‘Project Runway.’"

    FULL TITLE: 'Integrity is our only true currency': Designer who dressed Michelle Obama vows NEVER to work with incoming First Lady Melania Trump and urges others to follow her lead Sophie Theallet has vowed not to dress Melania Trump when she becomes First Lady and urged other designers to follow her example. Speaking on behalf of her brand, the designer tweeted a damning open letter in which she said they 'will not participate in dressing or associating in any way with the next First Lady'. Citing the 'rhetoric of racism, sexism and xenophobia' of the president-elect's campaign, she ruled out...

    Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 10-18-2014 | MOTUS
    Here’s a factoid you might find interesting: none of the other FLOTUS’s that I’ve had the honor of reflecting have ever campaigned for anyone other than their husbands. Not so Lady M: she spends nearly as much time on the campaign and fund raising trail as Big Guy these days.Most recently she was stumping in Florida for Charlie Crist: “We need you to cast your ballot starting next Monday for early voting,” Obama said at a gymnasium at the Central Florida Fair grounds. “I’m asking you, vote early.” I’m sorry to report that this took place yesterday, while I was...

    Now we can all get Michelle Obama's look! First Lady's fashion secrets revealed in first book dedicated to her style Since her husband's inauguration, Michelle Obama's wardrobe has received as much attention in the spotlight as the First Lady herself. In 2009, she was named as one of the world's most beautiful women. The same year, she was awarded a CFDA gong honouring her role in American fashion - and all while wowing a global audience with her grace, elegance and daring style, championing new designers and supporting U.S. business, and her husband, to boot. It comes are no surprise,...

    "Better Homes and Gardens" hasn't had a public figure on its cover in 48 years. With President Obama's approval rating plummeting along with the nation's employment picture, they must have figured now was the time to break with tradition and do an ultimate exposure puff piece on his wife: Better Homes and Gardens will feature First Lady Michelle Obama on the cover of its August issue - the first public figure to grace the magazine's cover in 48 years. Obama will be the focus of an article on healthful eating for children. The issue will hit newsstands July 19. Editors...
  • Michelle Obama's got the Feith as she steps out in favourite frock for the FIFTH time

    It's no secret that Michelle Obama loves Tracy Feith - she's been seen wearing his frocks on countless occasions. But there is one design, it seems, that she loves above all others. The U.S. First Lady proved the style staying power of the designer's wisteria print dress, which she first wore in January 2009, at the launch of her Lets Move Childcare campaign. She was pictured playing with children on a visit to the Centronia Bilingual Child Care Center in Washington in the Fifties-style floral number, which she teamed with lavender-coloured flats Read more:
  • First Lady Michelle Obama Rocks $35 H&M Dress

    02/10/2011 4:38:14 PM PST · by ColdOne · 109 replies
    Michelle Obama is often lauded for her approachable fashion sense that mixes high-end designers with recognizable mall favorites like J.Crew. And earlier this week, the First Lady made an appearance on NBC’s Today Show outfitted in a $34.95 dress from none other than H&M! Never shying away from bold colors, Mrs. Obama gave her navy-and-white print a personal touch by adding an orange obi-style belt and pairing it with bright yellow pumps. And while she has an affinity for arm-baring styles, her stylist took a different approach with this ruffle-front dress, customizing it by adding sleeves
  • Michelle Obama designer shut down

    Kai Milla's eponymous clothing line has shut down, and the cash-strapped business has failed to pay vendors for months, sources claim. Milla, wife of Stevie Wonder, founded the women's contemporary line in 2005 and received acclaim from the fashion press, including a spread in Harper's Bazaar and an appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show." Milla's height of popularity came after First Lady Michelle Obama wore a green silk sleeveless dress by the designer in February 2009, when Wonder was awarded a Gershwin Prize from the Library of Congress and gave a performance at the White House. Milla's last collection was...
  • First lady’s plan targets ‘food deserts’ (Overweight Michelle tracks kids - not terrorists)

    First lady’s plan targets ‘food deserts’posted by Landon Hall May 13th, 2010, 7:42 am No, not food “desserts.” That’s the way I first read it, too. Michelle Obama isn’t trying to take away our pie and ice cream. We’re talking “deserts,” places across America where people don’t have easy access to basic, healthy foods like fresh vegetables. The first lady’s Childhood Obesity Task Force report, released earlier this week, says 23 million people live in low-income urban or rural areas that are more than a mile from a supermarket. As a county somewhere in between urban and rural, O.C. doesn’t...

    A weekly newspaper photo depicting President Barack Obama and his wife as characters from the TV sitcom "Sanford and Son" was intended as political satire and not a racist commentary, the publisher said Wednesday. Phillip Sciarello, publisher and part owner of the Smithtown Messenger on New York's Long Island, defended the decision to publish the photo, but added the newspaper would run a retraction in its next edition for anyone who might have been offended. The photo spread features "before and after" shots of the last six presidents and their wives, starting with Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter and ending with...

    CHICAGO — Fashion and politics are seasonal and unpredictable, yet the two came together quite well here for the hometown designer Maria Pinto and Michelle Obama, whose first memorable bursts onto the national scene were often in Pinto creations. Remember the purple sheath Mrs. Obama wore the night of the fist bump heard round the world? The teal number at the Democratic National Convention? Or the red dress she wore to meet the Bushes on their way out of the White House? Maria Pinto all, designed right here where both women were born and raised and, over the course of...

    MEXICO CITY – First lady Michelle Obama said Wednesday that reducing the demand for illegal drugs needs an approach much broader than just warning young people to stay away from them. "If young people don't have an alternative in their lives, whatever country they're in, they're going to choose drugs, they're going to choose (the) drug trade. That's the way they make money," Mrs. Obama told reporters from six U.S. media outlets after a speech to several thousand young people during her first international trip as first lady. But she left the issue out of her public remarks in...

    MEXICO CITY — Michelle Obama made an unannounced visit to Haiti on Tuesday morning to inspect the earthquake-battered country and reinforce the American government’s commitment to help with the long recovery effort. Accompanied by Jill Biden, the wife of Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., Mrs. Obama took a helicopter tour of the flattened capital. More than a million people forced from their homes there are living in makeshift camps. She was also to tour the grounds of the National Palace, which suffered significant quake damage and trapped some employees inside. A meeting with President René Préval and his wife,...
