This week’s Big Question:
Michelle Obama: Fashion Icon?
America’s First Ladies are lightning rods for either praise or criticism over their apparel choices. Even the stylish Jackie O was not immune from comments positive and negative. Michelle Obama is no different. Fashion editor Sally Singer sees Ms. Obama as a practical style inspiration and considers her a new kind of fashion icon. Meanwhile, author Kate Betts compares the style of Ms. Obama with those of previous first ladies. Betts examines the etiquette and formal dress code of Capitol Hill, finding that Ms. Obama’s casual attire and attitude represent a break from the traditional uniform of women in the White House.
