The New Mrs O
Barack Obama may have become the United States of America's new President however, it's his effortlessly stylish wife, Michelle, who has endeared herself to many in the world's fashion circle. Hailed as the new Jackie O, Michelle has, over the last few months, joined her husband on the campaign trail in an array of stylish, ladylike but modern pieces that have been colourful and very well suited to her figure. The Narciso Rodriguez dress she wore the night her husband was announced President caused quite a stir, although it's a brave woman who can make a choice and not faulter at the first sign of critisicm. I have a feeling she may inspire many stylish women the world over who are stuck when it comes to choosing an outfit for a wedding. Take a leaf out of the First Lady's book... colour and shape maketh the woman!
