White House of Style
First Lady, Michelle Obama, stepped on stage last night after her husband's victory speech in a red & black hot-off-the-runway look that hasn't even been released yet. The dress is from Narciso Rodriguez's spring 2009 collection and must have been lent to her or especially made for her, which isn't surprising considering the support of the fashion industry for the Obama's. Michelle Obama has been seen in everything from H&M to Thakoon over the past months. I'm not sure if a First Lady's style has been paid so close attention to since the days of Jackie O. Move over Carla Bruni (France's First Lady & former model), there's some competition on the horizon in presidential style.
According to WWD, Vogue is even thinking of trying to get Michelle Obama on the cover as soon as possible.
Although I usually love Narcisco, I am not sure I particularly like this dress. What do you think?
