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.
