Focus on Women

Michelle Obama is on her first overseas trip as First Lady, and all the media asks is "What will Michelle wear?" Now, I'm as interested and enchanted with fashion as anyone, (see my earlier blog entries, rife with pictures of shoes), but really, everyone, this woman graduated from Princeton University and Harvard Law School. She has worked as part of the staff of Chicago mayor Richard M. Daley, and for the University of Chicago Medical Center. This is a very intelligent, talented, driven woman, who also happens to have a keen fashion sense.

During Obama's presidential campaign, Michelle Obama's former law professor was interviewed and said that he had expected Michelle to hold elected office before Barack Obama did.

I'd much prefer the questions to be, "What does Michelle think about the G20 convention and capitalism around the globe?" and THEN, the follow-up to be, nice coat. Because, wow, it is. And LOVE the yellow cocktail ensemble.

The conversation about fashion leads me to a thought for girls when they're wondering what to be when they grow up. Whether it's a doctor, lawyer, astronaut, teacher, president, the most important thing?...

Be smart.

Intellectually and fashionably.

Her name has become so synonymous with high-fashion that I just think it's redundant to comment on how she looks anymore.
