Michelle Obama's Emerging Style...

Comparisons of Michelle Obama to Jacqueline Kennedy have centered on style and fashion. Watch for Michelle Obama to become a trendsetter, possibly a reluctant one. -Darlene Superville

First Lady-Elect Michelle Obama has been both praised and maligned for her style choices. She takes risks. She enjoys trendy American designers as well as more classic looks. She buys online and off the rack, but she's also courted by top designers. So just when you think you know what Michelle Obama is gonna wear, she surprises you, and I think that's gonna make her super interesting to watch.  I don't think we're going to be able to box her into one fashion mold, because as soon as we try, she's gonna break out of it and do something totally different.  I, of course, have my own style ideas for her, but I'm actually looking forward to seeing what she does next.

Obama arrived at the White House for his first visit as president-elect ahead of talks with President George W. Bush, who leaves office in January.

  1. I love the fact that she is tall and VERY curvy. It'll be fun to see how the mainstream adapts to her body style. I think the fact that she is so comfortable in her own skin makes her super attractive. Michelle is a brickhouse and not trying to cover it up!
