Michelle Obama Dazzles in McQueen
The White House State Dinner for Chinese President Hu was made instantly more fashionable with First Lady Michelle Obama’s choice to wear an Alexander McQueen dress. The dress was designed by Sarah Burton, the successor to McQueen after his death early last year. It is part of the label’s 2011 resort collection.
Mrs. Obama looks absolutely stunning in this dress and perfectly demonstrates how to play up one’s best assets and how to make a dress work for you. The dress was originally featured with short sleeves, but the gown Mrs. Obama wore is sleeveless, thus playing up her amazing arms. The dress is also incredibly flattering in color and cut for Mrs. Obama. It is tucked in all the right places and fits her figure fabulously. The color pops and makes a definite fashionable statement.
The next time you have a big event or are out shopping, remember Michelle Obama and how she makes dresses work for her. She is an expert at proportions and knowing what works for her body, which is a key aspect of fashion. Fashion is something that you should make your own and that you should make flatter you. Alter fashion to fit and represent you.
Well played, Mrs. Obama. I can’t wait to see what your next fashion statement is.
