ike the former Mrs. O- First Lady Michelle Obama's name conjures up images of unparalleled grace and glamour. No other First Lady has come close to Jacqueline Kennedy in epitomizing a fresh American style until Michelle! In
Mary Tomer's Mrs.O : The Face of Fashion Democracy (Center Street) this chic tome showcases the most transformative First Lady in American history to embrace fearless fashion. Since the Obama's took residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue - Mrs. O's style has been emulated, imitated, even occasionally reviled but never fully examined - until now. Tomer details the intriguing tale of Michelle O - a budding icon who mixes high & low fashion which has contributed so greatly to her enduring appeal. In this lavishly illustrated tome you see first hand the magic and excitement the First Lady stirs as the wife of the president stemmed not only from her intelligence and beauty but also from her elegantly and sometimes edgy clothes. There are moments in history where events converge to create something rare and special. Michelle Obama's selection of young, affordable and sometimes rebellious designers to dress her as First Lady are one of these moments, not only in fashion history, but political history as well. As Tomer pointed out - the "Micheel look," is setting out to make the First Lady one of the best-dressed women in the world and a glamorous icon of the Obama era.
