Oscar de la Renta on Michelle Obama

By: Ingrid Kwong Michelle Obama is admired worldwide for her sense of style. Appearing on countless best-dressed list and on the cover of Vogue twice, she is one well-dressed First Lady. It would seem that Oscar de la Renta has something completely different to say. The designer, whose creations have been worn by past First Ladies including Hilary Clinton, slammed Obama’s fashion sense, saying he is not worried about dressing the first lady, he believes that it’s up to ordinary women to set the trend and influence fashion as opposed to celebrities or first ladies. On the other hand, judging by her wardrobe Michelle Obama isn’t too thrilled about De La Renta’s designs.  The fashionable First Lady hasn’t worn a single look from the designer, but she is known to be a big fan of Jason Wu. The first lady shocked the world by picking Wu to design her Inaugural Ball Gown for the second time in January 2013. Some of Michelle Obama’s favourite designers include Naeem Kahn, Isable Toldeo, and  Narciso Rodriguez.   delarenta
