Thakoon vs Kay Unger? Michelle Obama: 1, Jill Biden: 0
Now that Michelle Obama chose to wear a super-chic, on-trend frock from fashion insider fave Thakoon (!) to her husband's nomination at the Democratic National Convention, we have a hopeless fashionista crush on her...almost as die-hard as our Carine Roitfeld fixation. (Update - here are our latest Michelle Obama fashion posts: Michelle Obama in her Inaugural Ball Gown choice: a gorgeous, ethereal white one-shoulder number by Jason Wu; Michelle O in Narciso Rodriguez at the pre-inaugural events; Michelle Obama's red & black dress Election night fashion misstep; fashion to rule the White House; Michelle Obama dresses like Carrie Bradshaw).
While ladylike and appropriate, the chic and fresh floral print broke ranks with the usual snoozeworthy garb chosen by spouses helping husbands ahead in politics...such as this perfectly bland and boring Kay Unger ensemble (down to the Nancy Reagan red jacket) chosen by Joe Biden's wife Jill. She's lovely, but her style...not so much.
Instead, we're thrilled at the possibility of having a new stylish "O" in the White House that would have done Jackie proud.
