Finally, some good news in this unrelenting hellhole of a week: Michelle Obama is on the cover of December's Vogue, and she looks AMAZING.
In the interview, Michelle reveals that — like all of us — she is obsessed with cute dresses.
The entire feature is WELL worth a read, especially in the troubled, seriously depressing aftermath of the election. Michelle is infinitely kind, smart, and intensely focused — yet still not afraid to talk about fashion. Because, as we all know, women can be actively involved in social justice issues AND ALSO put effort into what they're wearing.
Of her truly outstanding First Lady style, Michelle said she never saw her fashion choices as brave. "It all boils down to comfort level," she said.
"If I’m going to make you comfortable, then I have to be comfortable first. So my first reaction isn’t ‘Who made this?’ But ‘Let’s try it on. What does it look like? Oooh, that’s cute. Oh, wow. I never thought of wearing something like this. Let’s put a belt on it. I feel gooood in this.’ There are definitely designers that I love, people I love to work with. And who they are as people matters. Are they good people? Do they treat their staff well? Do they treat my staff well? Are they young? Can I give them a boost? But! When all of that is equal... is it cute?!"
