Michelle Obama was a First Lady who knew how to use fashion to her advantage. She chose clothing that resonated with her and donned outfits she knew would make an impact. In this video Harper Bazaar UK takes a look at some of Michelle Obama’s best fashion moments that left a mark.
“First and foremost, I wear what I love. That’s what women have to focus on: what makes them happy and what makes them feel comfortable and beautiful. If I can have any impact, I want women to feel good about themselves and have fun with fashion,” Michelle once stated in an interview with Vogue from February 2009.
One reason why women relate to Michelle’s fashion sense is her high‐low approach to style. Even as a First Lady Michelle wasn’t afraid to rewear outfits, support local designers, and mix high‐end pieces with accessible high‐street finds.
Always mindful of her clothing choices, Michelle would often turn to fashion to pay respects to countries she was visiting by wearing pieces created by local designers.
From American-based designers Jason Wu, Diane von Frustenberg, to high fashion designers like Alexander McQueen, to high-street favourites like J Crew, Michelle can make anything look good.
