Wedding Dress Inspiration- Michelle Obama

Not many people would think that politics would go hand in hand with fashion. But there have been few people that have raised the style bar in that world, And the former First Lady of The United States Michelle Obama certainly did so.

The lawyer and author became the first black First Lady to enter the White House when husband Barack Obama became president in 2009. Michelle Obama is an influential figure who made her mark as a campaigner for many topics including education, healthy eating and human rights.

As well as her intelligence and decorum, Obama is known as a fashion trendsetter, her elegant yet eye-catching outfits provides a fresh take on power dressing. Obama’s wardrobe consists of garments by designers from outside America like Duro Olowu as well as up-and-rising designers like Mimi Plange, propelling a lot of names into prominence.

Another of Obama’s key designers is Jason Wu who also created her inauguration dresses for both the first and second terms in the White House. Wu’s white chiffon number from 2009 has a ruched one shoulder strap, a pleated bodice and a gathered floor-length skirt finished with chiffon flowers embellished all over the fabric. The look is completed with long, silver earrings and a bangle.

With its feminine floral embellishment and the draped shape, this style of dress is perfect as a bridal gown. The Grecian Goddess shape of the dress is made feminine with hand-sewn florals for the majestic look. The one shoulder look can be recreated with a strapless dress, we can order the fabric to match the dress to create the strap for you.
