Casual Glamour: Michelle Obama

Photo: Huffington Post

By shaking up the stuffy style rules and wearing what she loves – bold colours, a fit-and-flare dress, flat shoes – Michelle Obama has shown us a more modern, more relaxed way of dressing. She’s brought Casual Glamour to the masses. So, when the lovely people at Boden asked me to write about my favourite grown-up style icons, I didn’t hesitate. MObama was top of the list: My First Lady.

I like the Jason Wu two tone frock Mrs O wore at the State of the Union Address (top), do you?

Great piece! Even though I'm more comfortable in neutrals most of the time, I love seeing how MO wears color.

Not only is she glamorous, but odd though it may sound - relatable.

What more could we want?

I enjoyed the piece. You look beautiful in that photograph.

Mrs. O's style seems much more glamorous in a real way than Jackie O's style. I get the impression that Mrs. O feels comfortable anywhere.

The Jason Wu outfit looks g r e a t on M.O !
She has a fine forehead, and a " lighter fringe " - as in the picture mentioned, looks so much better compared to a thick one.
The clothes I´ve seen on her equal to a 50/50 success, imo. Not bad at all.

I too am a big fan of MO's style, confidence and presence. Loved her dress last night, and her hew hairstyle too.

I generally like her style a lot, for the reasons you express so well. But that dress is not my favorite. I always feel dresses ought to be happy as dresses, and not try to be skirts and tops:).

I like the First Ladies choices. She seems to have fun with clothes and knows what suits her well. I like the way she is not afraid to show off her arms. For me her true beauty shines from the inside out.

One thing I learned in life is to love what makes you happy and to cherish every moment you spend with your family, friends or love ones because everything that we have now on earth is temporary. Well, thank you for inspiring us with your great art work.
