Michelle Obama has made the biggest impact on fashion since Jackie Kennedy. She has completely destroyed the preconceived notion about what it takes to be a style icon during her time in the White House. Here are some fantastic and glamorous looks Michelle has sported during her stay in the white house.

 

Sleeveless Dress

Who would have thought that a simple dress would cause so much controversy! That’s exactly what happened when the First Lady wore an eggplant colored Narciso Rodriguez dress to her husband’s first address to Congress. There were arguments about whether she made a bold choice, or a First Lady faux pas. Thankfully for her the general consensus now is that she looked fantastic.

 

No High Heels

She has stayed away from the high heel look during her time in the White House opting instead for ballet flats and even sneakers on occasion when the situation truly called for it. She has shown women all over the country that you don’t have to be shackled to high heels in order to be stylish. In fact, it’s not a coincidence that fashion trends tended to sway away from the heels during this time.

 

Mixing High and Low Fashion

Michelle came into the White House during the worst economic crisis since the great depression, and gave women a breath of fresh air. She rocked the H&M dresses, along with the higher end statements. Everyone knows she has high-end clothes in her closet, but she isn’t afraid to find a great deal and knows one when she sees one.
