Now we can all get Michelle Obama's look!

Now we can all get Michelle Obama's look!

First Lady's fashion secrets revealed in first book dedicated to her style

Since her husband's inauguration, Michelle Obama's wardrobe has received as much attention in the spotlight as the First Lady herself.

In 2009, she was named as one of the world's most beautiful women. The same year, she was awarded a CFDA gong honouring her role in American fashion - and all while wowing a global audience with her grace, elegance and daring style, championing new designers and supporting U.S. business, and her husband, to boot.

It comes are no surprise, then, that the First Lady's sartorial acumen is the subject of its very own book, Commander in Chic: Every Woman's Guide to Managing her Style like a First Lady.

Written by Mikki Taylor, the hands-on style guide is packed with tips, advice and notes on how to dress like Barack's wife and, in doing so, perhaps emulate a fraction of that famously laid-back self-assuredness.

Speaking with Huffington Post, Ms Taylor said that the idea behind the project was not as a coffee table book, but rather as a guide 'that was filled with information that [women] could embrace, that would give them the kind of guidance to take the guesswork out of style.'

The Essence magazine editor, who first worked with Mrs Obama, 47, on a shoot for the magazine in 2006, is clearly a devoted admirer of her 'easy muse' and hopes to empower women with the style tips. Ms Taylor says that Mrs Obama is 'comfortable in her own skin' and always 'knows what works for her, who she is, who she isn't.'

When it comes to haircuts, having healthy hair and scalp is more important than style. 'At the end of the day,' she says 'you have to know your hair.'

It seems to me that much of what she wears is too tight for someone as heavy as she is.

This is an ax handle:

027-2036700.eps

It is 36 inches long

Any aspiring Moochelle-Ma-Belle look-alike needs to 1st, be able to qualify by having a "posterior" at least, that wide.

That is also called "Junk in the Trunk!"

'She has a great love of color. She loves a great dress, which at the end of the day is the best no-brainer dressing there is. She loves a multitasking cardigan; she's shown that it's a great adapter, the way she plays it over dresses, over the perfect pencil skirt or a pair of flared pants.'

Everything about that outfit is hideous; the bag is so old fashioned and frumpy, the sweater is 3 sizes too small, the belt makes her waist look even closer to her bosom than seems possible, and the shoes don’t match the belt, bag or dress. Everything looks thrown together and inappropriate. Should I go on? :)
