First Lady Fashion

Ever since Barack Obama was elected the first African-American President of the USA, Mrs Obama has not only excelled herself as the First Lady of the United States, but also of fashion. To celebrate her 51st birthday today, we round-up some of her best looks to date and take a look back at the best First Lady styles of all time. 

Throughout her time in the spotlight, the fashion focus on Michelle Obama’s wardrobe has not diminished. Since she took to the stage in a now-iconic Narciso Rodriguez dress on election night, she has gained many style supporters, becoming a regular in magazine best-dressed lists, as well as propelling designers such as Jason Wu, Thakoon and Peter Pilotto into the limelight. Earning comparisons to the uber chic Jackie Kennedy, she has even been given the seal of approval by Anna Wintour herself.

Not one to shy away from bold colours and statement prints, Mrs O certainly knows how to turn on the glamour at red carpet events but also know hows to work the casual yet chic off-duty look. A penchant for off-the-shoulder gowns, oversized pearl necklaces and waisted belts, Michelle has cemented her own signature style and redefined what a First Lady should wear.

Each of the First Ladies has brought a unique sense of style to the White House, from the one and only Jackie Kennedy who captivated the world with her love of rich fabrics and vibrant colours, to former actress Nancy Reagan who brought a touch of Hollywood glamour to the table. The latter was always camera-ready, matching her outfit to the colour scheme of the venue she would be visiting. Now that is what we call forward planning! Here are a few of our favourite first lady looks of all time:
