Wow, Michelle Obama! You are the perfect companion for President Barack Obama! A man as beautiful as him has found a woman who is just as lovely as he is! They seem to really have it all! An highly intellectual couple who happen to look exquisite as well. And today, Michelle Obama looked like a rare jewel. She outshined everyone in her beautiful, sparkling dress that was made by a Cuban designer. Some are wondering if she chose this designer because of her heritage as well as her talent. Here’s more on that from Newsday:
“Drum roll please. After months of heated speculation about what our brand new First Lady Michelle Obama would wear to the official swearing-in ceremony, the big news is in: Isabel Toledo.
Obama’s choice of a sparkly gold-yellow lace ribbon-closed coat and dress ensemble with a bejeweled collar is significant on at least two counts. First, the color. Since the Elizabethan Era, shades of yellow have symbolized renewal and hope, a platform on which Obama based his campaign. Also, newly sworn in President Barack Obama has been vocal about his desire to improve relations with Cuba, and some wonder if the First Lady’s choice of Toledo, who is Cuban-born, and Narciso Rodriguez, also of Cuban descent, for Sunday’s “We Are One,” concert — has deeper meaning.
While the 48-year-old designer’s name was always in the mix, she wasn’t considered a front-runner, with names like Tracy Reese, Thakoon and Obama’s hometown designer Maria Pinto considered to be the ones to watch. In June, Obama wore a black outfit by Toledo to a New York City fundraiser.
Early reaction to the ensemble was positive with some comparison to the famously fashionable First Lady Jackie Kennedy.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here:(http://www.newsday.com/news/nationworld/ny-michellewatch0119,0,1043123.story
