It has been six months since we presented a Pop Mom Style Icon but just flipping through recent photos online, we’ve come to a concensus and have wondered why this woman wasn’t on there before!
Joining past Bellyitch Posh Mom Style icons, Christina Milian , Jada Pinkett Smith, Jennifer Lopez, Kelly Ripa , Victoria Beckham, and Tichina Arnold is the first lady of fashion and oh yeah, the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama.
From the moment her husband announced his candidacy for presidency back in 2007, the fashion world has had their eye on Mrs. O. She has enjoyed a higher than average approval rating than her husband of late and is a much loved figure, generally, in the United States and the world. She stunned the fashion world when she opted to wear a lesser known designer during her husband’s inauguration in 2008 and has been known to wear labels and brands that are accessible to the average woman including J Crew, White House|Black Market and Gap.
This mom of two daughters 10-year old Sasha and 13-year old Malia is known for being fit, spearheading a national campaign to get children to eat healthier and exercise and sporting her strong toned arms at every chance she gets.
She likes new, up and coming, and lesser known designers, but will certainly wear pieces from the fashion industry’s institutional name brands like Ralph Lauren, Yves Saint Laurent, Versace and others.
Check out my favorite looks of Mrs. O from over the years in these photos that are available compliments of The White House.
