MICHELLE OBAMA WEARS AMERICAN DESIGNER CHRISTIAN SIRIANO

MO

Michelle Obama, who ditched the boxy jackets and dowdy style of so many first ladies before her, addressed the Democratic National Convention in a custom, royal blue dress by designer Christian Siriano. “Stuffy is not her signature, and in that sense her fashion choices reflect that sensibility and the mood of the times,” said Avril Graham, executive fashion and beauty editor for Harper’s Bazaar magazine. Siriano dressed Mrs. Obama for the first time for a much sadder occasion: a black dress for the July 12 memorial service for five police officers killed by a sniper in Dallas.
