FLOTUS Michelle Obama knows the power of grey. No, seriously she does. First, as you might recall, she donned shimmering grey lavender nails (the color in question was Artistic Nail Design Soak Off Colour Gloss in Vogue) at the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
And now, the mom-in-chief turned to the chic shade again for the 2015 State of the Union. This time, she dazzled in a Michael Kors Grey Tweed Origami Jacket with Foldover Collar ($797; back in stock) with the matching Tweed Skirt ($597 the zip-slit rested at the rear). Both pieces are on sale now at Neiman Marcus. Sign up for eBates before you go shopping to receive cash back!
Could you imagine if FLOTUS shimmied into the room with the zipper in the front, unzipped to mid-thigh? Yes, it’s salacious but like President Obama said, “I have no more campaigns to run. I know because I won both of them.” But that’s clearly just my silly self talking.
Lordt, that would be the biggest story of 2015, and we’re not even 30 days in yet!
The black and white zip front ensemble first debuted on the Fall 2013 runway with drama on deck: a chunky gunmetal chain necklace with an equally chunky black belt. Long leather gloves completed the look.
However, being the woman that she is, Mrs. Obama did not bother with frivolous accessories and instead chose simplicity. A bare but neat manicure, glossy pink lips and a silky lob (long bob) consisting of soft, shiny chestnut layers with a center part were her game plan. Celebrity hairstylist Johnny Wright, as her hair guru, whipped those strands into perfection.
