Vogue’s January issue will be the magazine’s first Special Edition devoted to the “Best Dressed Women of The Year” and guess who made the list? That’s right. Michelle Obama.
Here’s a short excerpt from the magazine:
“When she met The Queen she wore an outfit that referred back to Elizabeth I. There’s thought that’s put into everything. She really, truly is the individual”. Mrs Obama was selected because there is “no better example of fashion democracy”, Vogue says. “What she has done is so wonderful in that there’s a spotlight on her and she’s opened up the vocabulary…She mixes high and low, she mixes J. Crew with Gaultier. It’s that pairing of something not so expensive with something that’s a little higher end that’s worth celebrating”.
That’s high praise from a magazine that many consider as fashion’s “Bible.”
And it looks like Vogue is really embracing diversity because Chelly-O isn’t the only black woman to earn “Best Dressed Of The Year” honors! There are two others. Keep reading to find out who else made the list and if you agree.
