New book offers tips on how to dress like Michelle Obama
London: A new hands-on-style guide has revealed the fashion secrets of the US First Lady, inspiring all women to inculcate her modern, fresh, classic and daring style.
Since her husband’s inauguration, Michelle Obama’s wardrobe has garnered as much attention in the spotlight as the First Lady herself.
In 2009, she was named as one of the world’s most beautiful women. The same year, she was awarded a CFDA gong honouring her role in American fashion - and all the while wowing a global audience with her grace, elegance and daring style, championing new designers and supporting U.S. business, and her husband, to boot, the Daily Mail reported.
Written by Mikki Taylor, the book called ‘Commander in Chic: Every Woman`s Guide to Managing her Style like a First Lady’ is loaded with tips, advice and notes on how to dress like Obama’s wife.
According to Huffington Post, Taylor’s idea behind the project was not as a coffee table book, but rather as a guide ‘that was filled with information that [women] could embrace, that would give them the kind of guidance to take the guesswork out of style’.
The Essence magazine editor, who first worked with Mrs Obama, 47, on a shoot for the magazine in 2006, is undoubtedly a devoted admirer of her ‘easy muse’ and hopes to empower women with style tips and inspire them to create a signature look of their own.
Taylor asserts that Mrs Obama is ‘comfortable in her own skin’ and always ‘knows what works for her, who she is, who she isn’t.’
Taylor, who describes Mrs Obama’s style as ‘classic with a twist’, wants every woman to be the ‘commander in chic’ in her life, implying someone who owns her life and masters style with distinction.
