FLOTUS Michelle Obama’s Global Chic – Fashionwidget’s Favourite Picks

FIRST LADY OF THE US

WHO: Michelle Obama

WHAT: Six day trip to Ireland, the United Kingdom, France and Poland

WHEN: The week of May 22, 2011

WHERE: Europe

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: Classy. Chic. Stylish. Sophisticated. I especially loved the black Ralph Lauren gown she wore to the farewell dinner party, that’s my personal pick from the entire trip. I just don’t get her detractors when they nit-pick at everything she wears, we are not the first to report on Michelle’s UK style but I must say we might be one of the selected few who actually fancied her global chic wardrobe. Michelle Obama is a very beautiful and stylish woman with a great figure. Let’s leave it at that. People who feel the need to compare her to former first ladies or comment on the shape of her body are just being ridiculous because this woman can only be one person and that is who she is… Michelle Obama.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – William and Kate Windsor

WHO: Kate Middleton & Prince William

WHAT: Prince William Windsor weds Kate Middleton

WHEN: April 29th 2011

WHERE: Westminster Abbey, London, United Kingdom

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: As speculated, the bride wore a classic lace themed organza gown complete with a cinched waist and bodice from the house of McQueen. Alexander McQueen that is. The gown (which fit like a painted on glove) appeared to have added padding in the hip area drawing attention to Kate’s tiny waistline. It was designed by Sarah Burton and is rumoured to cost somewhere between $15-$20 million USD. Speechless-ly Spectacular! A++++++++

Stylish in the Rain – Kate Middleton (She is looking fantastic!)

Kate Middleton

WHO: Kate Middleton

WHAT: The opening of the Darwen Aldridge Community Academy

WHEN: April 11th 2011

WHERE: Darwen, Lancashire.

Embarking on her last official public engagement before her wedding to Prince William later this month, Kate Middleton manages to look stylish despite heavy downpour and a rather oversized umbrella, or “brolly” as they would say in the UK.

Fashionwidget Verdict: A
