Our inner voice acclaims “By George, she’s got it!” What a stupid thought because US First Lady Michelle Obama’s sartorial independence and style is well established and respected.
There is an trend term in fashion called ‘handsome woman’, a look more appropriate for European women and especially the French. This woman may not be considered classically beautiful but her physical aura and look is memorable and high impact.
Karl Lagerfeld called new Vogue Paris editor Emmanuelle Alt a handsome woman, as an example. The ‘handsome woman’ is confident and powerful, using her style to express independence and influence on her terms. The ‘handsome woman’ is a fashion individual.
Looking at the ravishingly good-looking woman Michelle Obama, dressed in this red petal print silk organza off-the-shoulder Alexander McQueen gown at last night’s state dinner, we say she is America’s ultimate ‘handsome woman’, a Smart Sensuality red tribute of happiness and properity for the ‘People’s Republic of China at the White House’.
The LATimes writes that the Alexander McQueen dress was desired by Sarah Burton, who took over the designer’s duties after his suicide in 2010.
Indeed, by George. She’s got it!!!!
