The Face of Fashion DemocracyBook - 2009
Mrs. O's style is the manifestation of her genuine, personal point of view. It serves not just as expected clothing for the occasion but as a creative expression of her life experiences and personal beliefs. It is a style celebrated for its ease, authenticity and approachability. As she prepares for her chapter in the White House, this book will pay tribute to Michelle Obama's personal style story thus far, highlighting the influences and recurring themes that have already made the new first lady a modern icon. Like many American women today, Mrs. Obama must play multiple roles in her life and those different roles demand different wardrobe choices, driving a multiplicity that's central to her style. As a resul she has already inspired women across this country, with looks that are often approachable enough to illicit "I could pull that off" sentiments, while absolutely awe inspiring when the stakes are highest. Brooches, ribbons, pearls and ballet flats - one of her greatest style strengths is her knack for adding feminine, personal touches to her ensemble. Without fail, she always adds an accessory or subtle detail that makes the look uniquely her own.
