The dress was made by British designer Alexander McQueen which caused uproar in the fashion industry. Although the First Lady looked glamorous, many people believe that because she is politically representing the United States, she should exclusively support American designers. In response to this disagreement, Michelle Obama responded with a simple 'look, women, wear what you love.'
Michelle Obama has been recognized for her classy yet glamorous style since day one. Like Jackie Kennedy, Obama often wears simple dresses and double-stranded pearl necklaces. She wears outfits that are 'First Lady Appropriate' but also likes to mix it up with bright colors and floral patterns.
No matter what happens to be in style or what others expect you to wear, it should make you happy. Whatever this may be, accessorizing with a simple pearl necklace or bracelet is always in style.
