Michelle Obama … Giving Her the WOW Factor


“The name of the game is taking care of yourself, because you’re going

to live long enough to wish you had.”

— Grace Mirabella

That quote by Grace Mirabella is terribly prescient isn’t it? I only wish someone had told me before I didn’t take care of myself! Grace Mirabella … just a tiny notation for those who were born after say … 1980 … ARGH EEEK … will note that Mirabella was editor of Vogue Magazine after fashion icon Diana Vreeland and before “Devil Wears Prada” inspiration Anna Wintour. Mirabella also had her own fashion magazine in the 1990s called “Mirabella.” 

But I digress. 

I’ve been thinking about Michelle Obama lately and which designers would compliment her body shape, her coloring and her sense of style.

I know how busy she must be so I’ve taken it upon myself to help her with a list of impressive designers that will give her the WOW! factor while staying within the confines of what is considered fitting for a woman in her position … First Woman.

This is just an aside but  … why do we say First Lady anyway? I hate that reference. It sounds trite and pedestrian. Technically, Lady is a British title used originally as a courtesy title for the daughter of an earl, marquess or duke. It’s also used for the wife of a wife of a viscount, earl, marquess, baron, baronet or knight. The First Lady is not an elected position, carries no official duties and receives no salary. It’s just a title that we (read men) made up.

Anyhoo … check the blog next week as I’m going to be playing and dressing up First Lady Michelle Obama. Well someone has to do it. It might as well be me!
