Michelle Obama: Style Icon

Our soon-to-be First Lady, Mrs. Michelle Obama, Esq. (gotta love that)is already proving to be something of a fashion plate, and I do believe she's on the fast track to becoming a full-fledged style icon (I'm talking to Jackie O. proportions). Please don't forget what happened when she wore that $148 Donna Ricco dress on The View! It's no surprise that a number of designers are beating down Mrs. O's door, submitting their sketches for their idea(s) of the perfect ensembles her and the girls for the upcoming Inaugural events. Some of the ideas are FLY, and some aren't so fly. Take a gander and let me know what you think!

Here are my top choices for gowns for the many Inaugural balls that will be thrown in and around the District.


Badgley Mischka


Christian Lacroix

Monique Lhullier

A few designers have also submitted daytime attire, that I'm assuming is for the actual swearing-in.

Here are my top choices.

This one literally made me gasp! I love it!

Who else but, Christian Lacroix.


Considering the fact that this (and all) Presidential swearing-in will take place outdoors in January, I'm gonna need Peter Som to design a fabulous winter white coat to go along with this ensemble.

Here's my top choice for Malia and Sasha for a ball.

These designs by Bonnie Young are fabulous without being too "grown."

For the rest of the designs for the already fly Obama ladies, visit WWD.com.

This is going to be the fashion shows of all fashion shows.....and I can't WAIT!! I'm excited to see what they wear. I know it's going to be fabulous no matter what.

I like the choices you made. I also agree that the girls' dresses look cute and not too grown.

I'll try to get as close as I can that faithful day....

Mrs. O is fabulous. I love #2 on the gowns and I love the blue coat you rated as #1. The O girls' dresses are wonderful too. Enjoy your holiday. Peace, Ananda, a Go Green BOHO BAP in DC
