Happy Birthday, Michelle Obama!

By  January 17, 2013


Glam hasn’t forgotten about Betty White’s birthday twin, Michelle Obama, as the FLOTUS celebrates her 49th today. In the political and social sphere, Barack’s beautiful wife paves the way in public service, undertaking the leadership role for Lets Move!, a nation wide initiative to battle child obesity, visiting shelters and soup kitchens all over the country, and fiercely supporting the families of military personnel serving overseas. As perpetual proponents of style, however, we must too mention Michelle’s impact on the fashion front and influence on our own wardrobes. She officially solidified her place as a fashion trend setter in that unforgettable one shouldered, white embellished Jason Wu gown at the 2009 inauguration ball, and has continued to support designers of ethnic backgrounds and looks of surprising qualities ever since. Michelle is a champ of effortlessly mixing mainstream and couture brands for sophisticated yet standout styles that consistently flatter her figure. Her signature ensemble? A sleeveless sheath to show off her sculpted arms and in a bold print that she’s sure to shine in. One more year to the big 5-0, Michelle. Can’t wait to see what other fab fashion moments (and incredible cultural contributions) you’ll stun us with over the next year, starting with this year’s highly anticipated inauguration dress!
