Two More Belts, Michelle Obama’s 6 Looks


Michelle Obama’s Star Wars belt isn’t the only studded waist cincher she recycles. She’s also a fan of the Sacai belt featured on the cover of Essence. I like the wider accessory, just not for Mrs. O’s body type. It makes her appear short-waisted while a slimmer style, like her blue Maria Cornejo, shows off her tall stature. I especially love the way she wore it in #5 with other cool colors. Most people would have opted for black. But Michelle thought outside the box and went for blue.

    Love the blue belt! May be my favorite she has pulled out so far. The way it was styled was both fresh and sophisticated.

    You’re so right – the belt itself is great, but it makes Michelle look borderline frumpy. Who knew THAT could happen! Love the blue belt in #4.
