After a hectic and contentious campaign season, the election is finally over! We will once again have the ever stylish Obama household in the White House and 4 more years of Michelle’s wonderful sense of fashion!
The Obamas Graced the cover of the November issue of EBONY magazine as a prelude to an interview with President Obama. In the interview, President Obama discusses the issues that are most important in the struggle to keep the country where the American Dream is not only possible, but a reality. For everyone!!
Being a devoted fashionista, I was particularly interested in the photos of Michelle Obama and how she is attired! Upon glancing at the cover, I suspected that the design I was seeing was from one of my all time favorite designers and upon looking inside, my suspicions were confirmed! The First Lady is elegantly attired in a dress designed by Byron Lars for his Beauty Mark Collection.
The dress is a completely modern take on the super feminine shirt dress that was a staple of proper dressing in the 1950’s and early 1960’s. The white shirt dress is embroidered with a floral motif from just under the bust and diffusing just below the hip line. The black and grey embroidery emphasizes the waistline in a way that creates a very flattering and slimming silhouette. The hem of the dress is embellished with several tiers of a metallic tweed, adding texture and dimension to a dress that is sheer perfection!!
Once again, Michelle Obama has made a brilliant fashion choice with this Byron Lars Beauty Mark dress! I for one am looking forward to another 4 years (and beyond!) of this awesome First Lady’s fashion. But, I am also looking forward to 4 more years of her intellect and presence as the woman behind the most powerful man in our country!
