Our First Ladys Fashion Frenzy

Designer: Jason Wu
Vogue Photographer: Annie Leibovitz

When Michelle first appeared on the scene she was approached my many top designers due to her obvious eye in fashion and her elegant, and sophisticated style.

{On top we have Marc Jacobs design created solely for Mrs. Obama, and right below we have a custom Betsy Johnson, if you have not realized by now also designed for our first lady }

             Our first lady decided to donate her fabulous, Jason Wu custom made inaugural gown to the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. Michelle's gown will be part of a new gallery, "A First Lady's Debut," which will showcase 11 dresses worn by first ladies. She was joined by designer Jason Wu and a group of design students.  Jason Wu seems to be a favorite for Mrs. Obama and we can see why he captures her elegance and still incorporates her fashion sense.           
     Although many designers have drawn out ideas and offered our first lady numbers of couture pieces she seems to value and favor many designs by Jason Wu.

Michelle Obama accompanied by her Husband were celebrating Cinco De Mayo in the Rose Garden of the White House. Mrs. Obama debuted a fabulous new watercolor print dress by Thakoon. In more depth this silk sleeveless dress showcases a colorful print that strings at her hips, capturing her toned body yet not revealing and staying very classy which Michelle always seems to manage. Her hoop earrings and yellow sandals compliment the fantastic, blend beautifully with her skin color and are a overall classic yet fun twist to the new additions to this old white 

            The Background on our First Lady

      When people ask First Lady Michelle Obama to describe herself, she doesn't hesitate to say that first and foremost, she is Malia and Sasha's mom. But before she was a mother -- or a wife, lawyer or public servant -- she was Fraser and Marian Robinson's daughter. Michelle grew up in a brick bungalow on the South Side of Chicago. Her father was a pump operator for the Chicago Water Department,  despite the fact he had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis when he was young, he was a hard worker and  hardly ever missed a day of work. Marian stayed home to raise Michelle and her older brother Craig, managing a busy household filled with a endless amount of love, yet a helping dose of structure, and principles to live by.
        A pupil in Chicago public schools, Michelle went on and studied  African-American studies and sociology at Princeton University. She then graduated from Harvard Law School in 1988, she joined the Chicago law firm Sidley & Austin, where she later met the man who would become the love of her life, and our 44th President.
       After a few years, Mrs. Obama decided her true calling was working with people to serve their communities and their neighbors. She served as assistant commissioner of planning and development in Chicago's City Hall before becoming the founding executive director of the Chicago chapter of Public Allies, an AmeriCorps program that prepares youth for public service. (Wow talk about all around type of woman)
             Michelle has shown us that a hard upbringing does not mean it cannot be filled with love and success. She has blended her sophisticated yet fun loving style into graceful yet vogue appropriate! Many relate her to the Kennedy's but we say Michelle Obama is in a category all her own.
