POLITICAL FASHION 101: Michelle Obama v. Anne Romney

Surprisingly, before midnight on November 7th, the 45th President of the United States had been determined. This capped off the most expensive (if not one of the most expensive) campaign seasons in history with a tab of nearly $6 billion. As millions of Americans waited with baited breath of concession and victory speeches that finally took place in the wee hours of the morning, many a fashionista was also playing particular attention to what Michelle Obama and Ann Romney were wearing. More than just a dress, the garment of choice by the First Lady of the United States and the woman who wanted to be, spoke volumes.

POLITICAL FASHION: AND SHE WORE TRACY REESE

Tonight, Michelle Obama dazzled the delegates at the Democratic National Convention with a rousing speech that spoke to her passion for her husband, military families, motherhood, the future and her love of her country. With New York Fashion Week beginning tomorrow, I wanted to just highlight the fact that she also showed her support to the American Fashion industry by wearing Tracy Reese. The First Lady has been an avid supporter of American designers from the moment she set foot on the national stage (and even before as she supported Chicago-area designers regularly at the many political functions she attended while in the role of  a senator’s wife).
