POLITICS OF FASHION: FIRST LADY FASHION!

Aren't you happy with the election results?! I so look forward to seeing President Obama and his beautiful family in the White House! I'm also super excited to see the future First Lady's fashion choices. Just as Obama's presidency will be the panacea to President Bush's failed policies, Michelle Obama's fashion sense is a welcome change from the dreary styles of Mrs. Bush. Interesting times are ahead of us politically and sartorially.

Not since Jackie Kennedy are people so tuned in to the First Lady's dress. Her style is a modern day incarnation of the Lady of Camelot...down to the faux pearls! She's even being compared to the First Lady of France, Carla Bruni Sarkozy. I cannot wait to see what she wears to the inaugural ball! The internet is rife with speculation as to the inaugural dress. Check out these designs from former Project Runway contestants and check out Jezebel's suggestions here.

While I've enjoyed some of Cindy McCain's ensembles, I've often worried about her choice of sherbert colored fabric. Mrs. McCain's style is age appropriate, and so probably wouldn't have gone over so well on Michelle, but the colors?! Not to mention the price tag. We know that Michelle can afford pricier designer duds...she loves Thakoon and Maria Pinto and frequents Ikram, but like the rest of us, she wears J. Crew, Gap and H&M often. You don't need a lot of money to buy class and a fashion sense!

P.S. It looks like the Obama girls are already quite the little fashionistas! Read more about Sasha's influence here and Malia's status as a fashion icon here.

I am really astonished by such a natural presence, full of charisma, she virulently exudes Stylishness . . . and frankly in a much less wooden way than Carla Bruni Sarkozy !!!

Great piece, StyleChile, but what would you say about her dress on election night? I have heard a few comments tearing it up into shreds.

Although from different places, but this perception is consistent, which is relatively rare point!
