One Azzedine Alaïa Belt, Michelle Obama’s 6 Looks


It’s no secret that Michelle Obama isn’t afraid to repeat outfits. StyleList pointed out that unlike any other first lady, Mrs. O even recycled her inauguration day outfit! The Nina Ricci cardigan she wore under that gorgeous Isabel Toldeo coat was seen again on St. Patrick’s Day and the green Jimmy Choo Glacier pumps have made numerous appearances. But Michelle’s all time favorite accessory seems to be her studded Azzedine Alaïa belt. Barack dubbed it her “Star Wars belt” and it’s traveled with the first couple from St. Paul to Prague, and everywhere in between. My favorite look is #2, when Michelle styled the belt over a vibrant Jason Wu dress and Michael Kors coat. Check back tomorrow to see how the first lady creates different looks with two of her other favorite waist cinchers.

    FLOTUS, to me, is setting an excellent example. We can be ‘fly’ all the time when we can have our American families working, all the time. Let’s make it happen with honest effort. Thank you Mrs. Obama.
