Michelle Obama made her mark in fashion. From her inauguration gown designed by Jason Wu to her signature cardigans, she made a statement. She also made fashion fun again.
The first lady’s signature cardigans are a cult classic. During her husband’s administration, she hosted Fashion Education events at the White House. Among other things, she had designers dress for her state dinners. And she even wore a fancy dress for the annual United States of Women Summit.
The most important lesson that Michelle Obama taught us was to be a champion of all things fashion, and to wear something to match. Her taste is fashionable and sophisticated, and she understands the importance of branding herself as an influential and accomplished woman.
Although she has a busy schedule, Michelle made time to attend a number of high profile fashion events. For example, she wore a chic sartor to the National School Counselor of the Year awards event. She also sported a high end sequin gown to the United States of Women summit.
She made the fashion press’s front page with a number of ensembles. And she’s not the only one. Similarly, Melania Trump caused a stir with her tone deaf outfits. In her defense, she was a former TV personality, and she’s no stranger to sartor status.
But there’s more to Michelle Obama’s fashion legacy than a sartor wardrobe and a fashion sartor status. From her fashion philanthropy to her involvement with the fashion community, the first lady has been an unabashed advocate of fashion.
