Michelle Obama’s Jackie O-Inspired Style Rules
12 fashion rules from the first ladies of fashion
-Lois Joy Johnson
Jackie O and Michelle O seem to be fashion sistahs.
Question for you Bettys: Is imitation the sincerest form of flattery or is it just a nice safe way of being a fashion copycat?
True original style is rare. True original style that provides a wardrobe template for woman FOREVER is even rarer still. That’s why we have had only four true “icons of style:” Audrey, Kate, Coco and Jackie. Now, suddenly, for the first time in years we have a living fashion icon. (Sorry, Sarah Jessica Parker, the Olsen sisters and Katie Holmes do not count and neither does the A to Z list of stars dressed by their stylists.) I’m talking of course about Michelle Obama – a woman with a clear sense of what she wants to wear and how she wants to wear it. Michelle O and the late Jackie O are our First Fashion Plates with a taste for elegance and a fever for fashion. They seem to have a lot in common. Maybe it’s all coincidence. Or, maybe Michelle has always liked the classy Jackie look and is simply giving it a shot in the arm(s). Or maybe Michelle is just giving back by showing the celebs that clog our websites, magazines and TV screens that it is possible to be smart, cultured, a fashion junkie and dress yourself. Whatever it is you are up to Michelle, THANKS!
