All US First Ladies have become, whether they like it or not, fashion icons. The most notable of them all is of course, Jackie Kennedy Onassis, the wife of JFK. Everything Jackie wore became a sensation. Her clothes, accessories, hairstyles - all were perfect in the eyes of fashion connoisseur. Jackie O (as she was fondly called by the press) wore the creations of Dior,Chanel,Givenchy, Valentino and her favorite Oleg Cassini. Icons of the icon designers.

Now, the fashion connoisseurs' eyes are all on the new US first lady. Can she make it? So far so good. Critics loved the dress she wore at the inauguration and ball. Choosing unknown budding designers was very commendable of the new first lady. Some say, Michelle Obama is trying to project a Jackies O-ish persona. Here I quote and unquote:

“Everyone knows that people respond to the way you look when you run for office,” AndrĂ© Leon Talley, an editor-at-large for Vogue, which featured Mrs. Obama as an “It” girl in its April issue, said last week in an interview. “A black Camelot moment is the right moment for the Obamas,” he added. “And so the faux pearls, the A-line dresses, the Jackie flip are obviously all part of how her image strategy has evolved.”
