[quote]U.S. first lady Michelle Obama walks into the East Room of the White House to meet with music students to view a special preview performance for the White House's annual Governors' Ball in Washington February 21, 2010. The first lady continues her youth outreach before this evening's ball headlined by Harry Connick Jr. while the nation's governors congregate in Washington this week for their annual National Governors Association annual meeting.

Michelle is a lawyer whose husband ran for president and she so happens to dabble in fashion. she is not a fashionista. The whole point is that her style is normal, approachable, do-able for the regular professional woman. She is not doing anything new fashion wise. She is just not following the politician's wife's dress code.

For a conservative environment like Washington dc government, her style stands out mostly because she wears dresses. (she dare to go sleeveless and the whole place nearly collapsed) I know it might be hard to believe but some places in this world are not as fashion forward as you might think.
In one way I agree: I don't believe Michelle is sitting in the White House thinking too passionately about clothing. This is where I agree about the fashionista thing: not that she isn't fashionable, but that most fashionistas are defined by having an abnormally attentive passion about what they wear (I can see Jackie O. having this) it isn't bad; it's just the mind of a fashionista (99.9 % of tfs).

The part where I disagree is this: I absolutely think that Michelle will be a style icon in the future as Jackie O is. For one, she is iconic within herself, period. But add to that the fact that she wears modern chic, no matter how approachable; it’s a timeless setup stylistically speaking. People will look back and call it the "new vintage”; it marks time. Likewise, I think Hilary had the potential to mark a certain time and style but I don't think she cared/cares enough about clothes to address it. Michelle, on the other hand, seems to be able to address it without effort.
