Michelle Obama Travels The World And All Anyone Cares About Are Her Clothes & Her ColorDodai Stewart4/08/09 1:00pmFiled to: The missusmichelle obamaFashionOscar de la Rentavera wangDonna KaranRaceOprahStereotypesGettypic114EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkIf you're sick and tired of people trying to "define" Michelle Obama, bad news:The shit will not stop. Much of the recent crap has been handily complied into The New York Times' "The Opinionator" column by Eric Etheridge. Though Michelle Obama was well-received in Europe last week, some designers (Vera Wang, Donna Karan) are bent out of shape that she hasn't worn their clothes. (Most notably, Oscar de la Renta said, "You don't go to Buckingham Palace in a sweater"; Simon Doonan criticized Ms. Obama's Junya Watanabe cardigan as well.) Luckily, Dmitcha, a former model and a diarist at Daily Kos, had the presence of mind to point out that if Michelle Obama is snubbing certain designers — and there is no proof that she is, only that she's (gasp!) wearing what she likes — these same certain designers are the ones who barely use any models of color on their runways. Burn!
