Michelle Obama = Fashion Icon

In this purple sheath dress with a black waist belt, Michelle Obama proves that she has so much more style than that other potential first lady!

Michelle Obama proved her fashion prowess when she appeared on The View in June. (I love The should def watch!) The $148 White House/Black Market Empire flower print dress she sported became a hit. The Donna Ricco-designed black-and-white outfit quickly sold out.

When Michelle Obama met with Puerto Rican first lady Maria Luisa Gandara, she chose to embrace the wide belt trend. Who cares what they were discussing! Where'd she get that outfit?!?!

Michelle Obama embraces classical style elements here on the Campaign trail. She opted for a 1950s-inspired look — complete with the sweater wrapped around the shoulders...definitely a Gingham girl!

At the 36th NAACP Image awards in 2005, at which Sen. Obama was honored, Michelle Obama showed her glamorous side. Maintaining the classic comfort for which she has become known, Obama added to her elegance with a sweeping up-do and large earrings.

When was the last time you wanted to dress like the first lady?
