The First Lady’s style has been admired from the time she was thrust onto the political scene as the wife of then presidential hopeful, Barack Obama.  The First Lady of style in politics has since been featured in countless fashion magazines and TV shows.

Andre Leon Talley: Former editor-at-large of Vogue

“Style is not an afterthought to this wife and mother committed to national service; whether she is frolicking on the White House lawn in Converse or at an awards dinner in Michael Kors scarlet chiffon, she always looks elegant and appropriate to the occasion and to our modern times. Obama has made an interest in and love of fashion — having fun with it, the way it can make one feel good about oneself — accessible to all. But beyond her wardrobe, it is her confidence, sense of purpose, and grace she wears best of all.”
