The Icon: Michelle Obama

This week's icon is a relatively new face to the style scene. Michelle Obama first began getting attention for her stylish looks when her husband was on the campaign trail, and after his inauguration, she's become known as a sartorial star. Mrs. Obama effortlessly mixes high and low- wearing a mix of designers and fast fashion brands, like H+M, with a healthy dose of J.Crew mixed in. She redefined First Lady style, trading in dull pantsuits for colorful pieces with fun prints. She's not afraid to bare her arms, and you can't blame her- she has a pair of smokin' guns! Obama is not afraid to take risks when it comes to her fashion choices- sometimes the risks she takes are failures, but most times, they are runaway successes!
