When Michelle wore the beautiful black and white dress designed by Donna Ricco on the TV show 'The View' in June 2008, the dress became a fashion hit and sold out.
Shelly Branch, co-author of the style guide “What Would Jackie Do?” has already commented on the similarities between Michelle O and Jackie O. While Harriette Cole, creative director at Ebony magazine, believes that “All eyes were on her [Michelle]” at the Democratic National Convention.
It is amusing that her speech at the convention was also being anticipated for what she would wear.
"She already looks like a first lady" said a designer. "Her style is so clean and elegant, she won't need to change anything" she added.
Drawing the comparison between the two first ladies, a British newspaper set up an interesting slideshow claiming that "Jackie O's unique sense of style may have found its way back into Washington "
