Guest Post: Michelle Obama Style 2011

Best Dressed First Lady with attainable Style Michelle-Obama-magazine-covers-2011 
Michelle Obama, First Lady of the United States appears in Glamour, Reader's Digest and Essence in 2011.

Michelle Obama, our current First Lady seems to easily transform herself, a shape changer if you will, to fit the mood or occasion. More than any recent First Lady, Michelle Obama has embraced fashion on all frontiers.

One of her most astonishing gowns for 2011 was worn when she met the queen, because of its remarkable resemblance to another first lady's "Meet the Queen" Dress (Jacqueline Kennedy).  Can you see the similarities between the Tom Ford designed white gown for Michelle Obama and Hubert de Givenchy's pale ice blue gown for Jackie O?

I admire Michelle Obama's ability to show reserve as much as I admire her ability to display bold style. As is the case below:

While it would take a book to showcase all the fine clothing Mrs. Obama wears to various functions, this piece would not be complete without featuring Michelle in this Alexander McQueen gown that stole the show at a State Dinner on 1-19-2011.

I have to admit I don't know much about Michelle Obama but she always strikes me as a well presented and well dressed women, a lot was shown over her when she met with Princess Catherine and she looked stunning.
