Take inspiration for your next occasion from our favourite style ambassador (and former w&h cover star), Michelle Obama.
The fortysomething First Lady has unrivalled personal style - bold, playful and packed with personality. Stylish but never a slave to fashion, Michelle translates the latest trends with ease into polished and confident ensembles, whether she's attending a state dinner or walking the White House dog!
Though we might not all have Michelle's famously toned upper arms, we can take inspiration from her fearless approach to fashion. This First Lady embraces pattern and colour, working brights in red, blue and citrus shades into her formal style as well as her off-duty look.
A fan of all-American brand J Crew, Michelle mixes high street and couture for a wardrobe bursting with dazzling prints, embellished pieces, and beautiful textured fabrics.
Whether flattering her athletic figure in a form-fitting gown or one of her trademark 1950s-style fit and flare dresses, you can guarantee Michelle will complete the look with a statement necklace and step out with confidence!
