{April 8, 2009}   Michelle Obama inspired fashion

Michelle Obama is probably the most photographed woman on the planet. For a woman that only a few of us would admit to having heard of this time last year, her ascent to style icon has been impressive. The 45 year-old first lady has cut a dignified and confident figure throughout the presidential campaign and short term in the presidency.

Obviously, being in a privileged position, Michelle Obama has access to the top designer fashion labels –  she isn’t exactly operating in the same levels of clothes shopping than most of us here in the real world. Her fashion portfolio so far, at most major events has included Jason Wu, Thakoon, Isabel Toledo and Jimmy Choo. However, that doesn’t mean that we can’t take some general inspiration from the First Ladies style. As she told Vouge:

“If I can have any impact, I want women to feel good about themselves and have fun with fashion.”

Read on for some Michelle Obama style rules:

  • Keep it simple – what we have definitely noticed about Mrs O is that she never appears over-dressed. Her choices at massive occasions such as The Inaurguration and The Oscars could have led to some potentially overblown and inelegant choices – but not from Mrs Obama, she has judged each occasion perfectly – less is more.
  • Don’t overdo the bling – Michelle rarely appears to sport a great deal of jewellery, but when she does it makes an impact  (see the Oscars necklace)
  • Subtle make up
  • Accentuate your best features
  • Smile!
