America’s First Lady, Michelle Obama has hit the half-century mark today, Friday 17 January 2014 and what better way to celebrate her fabulousness then with the impeccable style she has hit us with over the years?
She started the celebration last week by spending extra time with girlfriends in Hawaii after her family’s holiday vacation there. It was an early birthday present from the president. On Saturday, she’ll be toasted at a White House party where guests have been advised to come ready to dance, and to eat before they come.
Michelle Obama describes herself as “50 and Fabulous” and we cannot help but agree. We love the First Lady for a number of reasons, here are a few:
She Knows How To Repeat Outfits In Style
She Wears Affordable Fashion Too
In a world were a lot of celebrated figures are inclining towards expensive and high fashion brands, Michelle Obama shows that she can rock affordable fashion too and has been spotted in an ASOS dress that costs only $28! And she has worn it twice. She wore it to the Joining Forces cookout for military service members and their families in July 2011 (left), and again to an Iowa campaign rally in August 2012 (right).
She Loves Nigerian Designers
Michelle Obama has been sighted in two very talented Nigerian designers pieces on different occasions. She seems to really favour Duro Olowu’s Designs and as been spotted a number of times. She has also been spotted in Maki Oh by Amaka Osakwe.
She Understands Comfort
Fashion and style is more than the outrageously high heels and uncomfortable outfits. Michelle Obama understands this and has been a fashion trend setter by going for some of the cutest and fashionable flat shoes.
