G20 Summit Fashions: Replicate Michelle Obama’s Looks

April 2, 2009 by Anna   | Filed under Style & Trends


How can I run a fashion blog without covering our first lady?  I did it for the big Inaugural Day, but there are still a lot of other events that the first lady has been attending.  The Obama clan is in London for the G20 summit and besides all of the very important issues, people want to know what Michelle Obama is wearing.  That is where I come in.

Look#1:  Jackie O Inspired

This is classic first lady attire isn't it?  It's elegant, timeless, and sophisticated.  That's why after almost 50 years, Jackie O is still the ultimate fashionista.  Taking a que from Jackie, Michelle Obama is wearing a white coat with black trim by New York designer, Thakoon Panichgul.  Underneath, she keeps it simple with a black shift dress by Michael Kors.  Now you can get a Michael Kors shift dress that ranges anyhwere from $135-$1500 in stores.  Or you can get the same dress at GAP for $58.  As for the jacket, you can replace it with a white trench coat to give you the same sophisticated feel.  The nice thing is, you'll be able to better utilize a trench coat for casual or formal outfits.

Look #2: Modern

Jason Wu, who designer her Inaugural dress, was called on by the first lady again to do his magic.  And it worked.  Here you see a chartreuse silk crepe sheath dress, a black duster coat by Michael Kors and a studded belt from Azzedine Alaia.  I love the studded belt because it gave her outfit as much edge as a first lady can give.  It's still classy with a twist.  This look is so simple to find at an affordable price.  If chartreuse isn't your color, find any colored silk wrap dress, pair it with a fly away cardigan and get an inexpensive studded belt at Forever21.  This is great for an evening out or for work.

Look#3: Casual Elegance

Even with a daytime look, she bedazzles.  Here she is wearing a mint green skirt (great for the spring) with a white cami and spices it up with a constellation cardigan from JCrew with lots of embellishments and details.  You can get this exact cardigan at JCrew for $298 or you can find other cardigans with sequins accents for a fraction of the price.  This outfit is so well put together and great for work or just a regular daytime look.

There ya have it.  I'm sure I'll be talking about Michelle Obama's style for many more years to come :-)

    My favorite style on her is the sleek, modern look. It’s so refreshing to have someone in the White House that can pull that off!
