Who Wore Rachel Roy Better? Iman or Michelle Obama

Despite many of you not sharing my enthusiasm for Iman’s Rachel Roy Fall 2010 look. It looks like Michelle Obama did.

The American First Lady wore the same Rachel Roy velvet skirt when she and her husband attended a glittering banquet held by Indian President Pratibha Patil at the presidential house Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi on Monday night.

Mrs O paired her skirt with a Rachel Roy Moroccan tunic and a bejeweled waistband.

This is a week after Iman wore the same skirt to the 2010 Ace Awards in New York City.

The supermodel teamed her skirt with a head-to-toe Rachel Roy look which included a rust jacket, a matching jersey bodysuit, Rachel Roy for Manolo Blahnik heels and RACHEL Rachel Roy and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

I think both women look fantastic but I have to give this to Iman as I love the colour of her look.

    I prefer Michelle Obama, I thought it was an interesting choice and it looked very ethnic and appropriate for her trip.

    I never thought anybody could beat Iman. She carries herself so well and has such good taste, but I must say, Michelle Obama looks gorgeous. She also, as Iman, just does so well.

    I prefer Mrs O as the colour I think is more flatter ring. By the way she also wore a fabulous Dries jacket at another event . A first Lady wearing Dries!

    Michelle O. wins for me. The colour is fantastic on her and she looks really elegant. I far prefer her choice of top over Iman’s jacket. Also, Iman’s skirt looks too long, which also brings down her look for me.

    Iman wins for me. But i love how the same look fits each woman individual personality.

    Michelle’s skirt makes her look huge. Iman’s is trimming. Plus Michelle tends not to work clothes. She wears them. That’s all.

    i think this tops is millions times better, and the belt helps to give more definition, the bad this, the hips, they looks big big!!!

    Michelle!
    She can not do any wrogn in my eyes, her lookbook on the cut (a lookbook of Mrs. Obama’s looks) in just to die for. I LOVE the belt and the top. Perfect. This was a really hard one to call though, iman is, as per usual (always), stunning.

    I couldn’t vote because I just couldn’t choose. Both women are totally event-appropriate and look gorgeous in their choices. Two lovely women who are not 22 and not size 0. What inspirations!

    What is the problem with a woman having curves and hips. Many so-called ethnic women(white folks are ethnic too) have curves. It peeves me to read those nasty comments about her hips. Pure stupidity. Makes me think that those comments come from a racist point of view. Iman- looks great. Mrs. Obama looks as equally great.
