In Michelle Obama’s Closet – Basso & Brooke Top

This is a quick response to Ewurafua’s request.

The top Michelle Obama wore when she and President Barack Obama held an Evening of Poetry, Music and the Spoken Word in the East Room of the White House on Tuesday night, was by Basso & Brooke.

The white pants are Maison Martin Margiela.

Please email me any requests, and I will try to help.

    OMG she is SO underdressed! She looks ridiculous walking hand-in-hand with the President in a suit! Seriously, no joke, she looks like she is headed to a bake sale or something! UGH! I repeat AGAIN: Can you PLEASE dress like you are the First Lady of the United States?!

    It’s interesting how Michelle Obama gets the same love it or hate, but no in between views on her fashion choices as Beyonce.

    He has to wear a suit. Come on people, give her a break.

    If she as dressed like Hilary Clinton in skirt suits, you would complain even more.

    i really don’t get people who bitch about michelle. she is the first stylish first lady the u.s. has had in ages (think jakie, yeah i know the comparison is cliche).

    i mean just compare her with bush’s wife for example… why do some people assume that first ladies should wear nothing but ugly suits and throw-backs to the 80’s all the time

    obviously michelle obama is far cooler and more modern than the u.s. audience deserves.

    I personally think this is inappropriate for the first lady. She needs to try and dress like the first lady, not a celebrity out shopping.

    she is such a fashion genius. who knew margiela could look so elegantly casual? she’s made margiela look accessible. i don’t know if that’s what the brand is going for…but she did it. i love this whole look.

    Damn, she looks amazing. I, too, think it’s refreshing that she’s so fashionable!

    I love the whole look, the blouse is to die for. BUT I hate the capris. It’s too casual. I think longer pants would have been much better. She is so tall and has great legs, she would have rocked the whole palazzo pants look.

    one word:GORGEOUS.
