VOTE: Mrs. O a Dream in McQueen?

mrs. o; michelle obama in alexander mcqueen


The fashion blogosphere is abuzz over First Lady Michelle Obama’s stunning red silk Alexander McQueen gown worn to welcome China’s President Hu Jintao to the White House last night. She’s an absolute vision and it’s great to see a fashion-embracing choice in Washington.

The gown appears to be an altered version of the above dress (left), which is from Alexander McQueen’s Resort 2011 collection, a collection which is full of stunning delights.

These would also make amazing choices for an elegant state dinner. Or ball. Or for vacuuming in one’s tiara, no?

Shorter, more “daytime” versions are a nice alternative as well…



As are some lighter pieces. What do you think of the collection and of Michelle Obama’s choice? What’s your favorite look from the collection?

    Sadly I think it makes her hips look a bit big, but mainly that “smile” she is wearing isn’t her best. McQueen should fine her for that one.

    BTW: Funny how the dress is leaning to her left. I didn’t know fashion followed politics.

    I love Michelle Obama and don’t care what she is wearing. She is genuine and truely seems to care about what she is doing. I love fashion, but I also wonder if her venture with Wal-Mart to make their food more healthy garnered as much attention.

    Michelle is fab and no one care tell me otherwise:o) I agree with what Amy said, “Most fabulous First Lady we’ve had in a while!”
