Michelle Obama: Our first lady has brought style and class to the White House in a way that hasn't been seen since Jackie O. She has highlighted a huge array of American designers from Jason Wu to off-the-rack J. Crew sweaters. She isn't afraid to take fashion risks, whether that means baring her well-toned arms in Congress to wearing a vintage dress at a recent White House Christmas event. She has almost done more for American fashion from the worldwide perspective than all the NY fashion week press junkets combined. From her fabulous brooches to her wide cinched belts, Shelley O. has become a bona fide fashion icon.
