Book Description

The election of Barack Obama exhilarated the nation—and brought the most stylish, sophisticated, and fashion-conscious First Lady since Jacqueline Kennedy into the White House.

A beautiful, strong, and elegant career woman, wife, and mother, Michelle Obama appreciates the importance of image—and not only recognizes the power of fashion...but truly enjoys it!

Michelle Style celebrates the distinctive style of our incomparable First Lady, featuring color photographs, exclusive illustrations, and descriptions of her most iconic looks—from the sleeveless Maria Pinto purple silk crepe sheath that Michelle dazzled in the evening Barack clinched the Democratic nomination, to the ivory fairy-tale gown by Jason Wu that she wore for the historic inauguration. Including quotes from world-famous designers, stylists, and fashion insiders—and inspired advice on everything from dressing to suit your body type to shopping at Target—this one-of-a-kind volume spotlights and celebrates our remarkable twenty-first-century fashion icon.

I'd done a library "preview" so I knew I'd end up buying this one. Apart from being a huge fan of my "homegirl," I really like Ms Norwood's writing. Fashion and style books sometimes make people think "fluff" or "no substance" and just lots of pictures of nice clothes. Anybody who's seen "What Not to Wear" over the years, may have learned that there is a connection between looking good, feeling good and giving off confident vibes. Mrs O has that 50 times over, and Ms Norwood makes this all nice and readable.

Great book! Details about Michelle's style and her clothes. How she can take a simple inexpensive dress from H&M that cost $35.00, add a snazzy designer belt and look like a million bucks! I hope we see more books on her style because I think she is unique in her choices and is not dictated by fashion. Yes, I know, Michelle is a brilliant woman in her own right, and I don't want that minimized, but it's nice to have a First Lady in the WH again who appreciates clothes and the message they can send. There are two other ladies who understood that; Jacqueline Kennedy and Princess Diana. Now it's Michelle Obama!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book about Mrs. Obama's "style". I like the fact that the author acknowledges that sometimes Mrs. Obama's style is not appealing to everyone, but Mrs. Obama wears her choices "confidently" well. This book enhances the reality that Mrs. Obama is classy as well as down-to-earth when it comes to dressing herself and her family. I enjoyed the sincere comments from the fashion designers/experts. I give kudos to the author as well. This writing enables the reader to get to know Mrs. Obama just a little bit better. Learning more about someone's fashion does that. Very enjoyable reading.
