Just read that the CFDA Fashion Awards is honoring the First Lady with the Board of Director’s Special Tribute on June 15 but Mrs. Obama will not be in NYC to accept her award. Women’s Wear Daily does report however that the First Lady will tape her acceptance speech at the White House which will be shown during the awards ceremony. Social Secretary Desiree Rogers (pictured here with the Prez) is scheduled to accept the award on Mrs. Obama’s behalf.
Until cloning is an option, the First Lady can’t possibly make all the big events she is invited to attend. It sure does help to have an equally fabulous stand-in, right?
