Michelle Obama In Emilia Wickstead – ‘Becoming’ London Book Tour

Fashion Blogger Catherine Kallon feature the Michelle Obama In Emilia Wickstead - 'Becoming' London Book Tour

Despite having a laptop, PC, iPad and iPhone all waiting in line to purchase tickets for Michelle Obama’s talk to promote her bestselling book ‘Becoming’ at The Royal Festival Hall in London Monday (December 03) – as did my sister and two friends – we all missed out on this once-in-a-lifetime event.

Yesterday I was waxing lyrical about how much I loved her post-office style, but unfortunately I couldn’t get on board with this white jumpsuit from Emilia Wickstead’s Resort 2019 collection.

I just can’t get past the high placement of the belt.

And I’m not sure I like the trousers either.

    I love her in white…I agree that it makes her stand out. As for this outfit…it is not terribly flattering, but she tends to wear clothing that sometimes exaggerates the shape she has…she is not trying to hide the fact that she is pear-shaped and short-waisted. I respect that.

    Those are some wonky proportions

    She is a typical ‘pear’ so anything like this would make her look even more disproportionate. Maybe she aspires to be Kim K’s competition…

    The belt is placed weirdly high on the model too.

    The pants look so unflattering here, makes her look out of proportion.
    Whoever was in charge of getting a venue for her talk should be fired, a much larger capacity venue should have been booked.

      Her promoters severely underestimated her popularity outside of the US. Even in Paris, the place they booked for her isn’t enough compared to the demand. Hopefully, they’ll change it for the rescheduled date.

    All of her promo tour looks (so far) have been unflattering.

    I love Michelle’s style but this is horrible and unflattering. She needs to stop with the belt. She is extremely tall so I don’t get her stylist’s obsession with them.

    What an awful, unflattering outfit. Why is she always wearing white?

      “Why is she always wearing white?” Aside from looking good in the color and the suffragette connection, I wonder if wearing white simply makes it easier for her to be seen in large venues. A literal beacon of light in a dark world.

      She is a “pretty pear” but extremely short-waisted, which this outfit emphasizes to her detriment esp when standing.

    Agreed, the proportions are all off because of the high placement of the belt. I think it would’ve made a huge difference if it were lower

    I love her style and looking forward to reading her new book.

    Love Michelle but this outfit is so laughable. The way pants are shaped and the placement of the belt are just a big NO.

    I am not a fan of any of her clothes . She wears belts that make her look huge- the black belt was especially wrong . I love her as a person and respect her greatly but wish she would dress more for her figure .
