Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Robin Givhan from the Washington Post spoke on a panel about women and fashion in New York City last night and of course Mrs. Obama came up. Givhan pointed out that she would love to see the First Lady wear the downtown style of American designer Marc Jacobs. Hmmm. I guess I’m not mad at that. She added that Mrs. O has set an example for a lot of women who are over the age of 30 and felt disenfranchised by the fashion industry.
“She is perfect example that you can incorporate fashion into your life, and what makes you look good doesn’t necessarily negate your I.Q.,” Givhan said.
Stay tuned to see if Mrs. Obama wears Marc Jacobs in the near future…
