Michelle Obama has transformed the role of what it means to be the First Lady in the 21st century. With elements of Jackie O and minor hints of Sex & the City’s Carrie Bradshaw, Mrs. O attracts attention from all over the world. Mixing high-end labels with affordable brands, she has a warm and inspirational style she has made her own.
Building on the success of Mrs-O.org–the website that chronicles Michelle Obama’s style–Mrs. O: The Face of Fashion Democracy delves into the wardrobe and life of America’s modern style icon. Going behind the scenes with interviews from her favorite designers, including Isabel Toledo, Jason Wu, Michael Kors, Maria Pinto and Isaac Mizrahi, the book offers 120 stunning photographs.
Readers receive a brief overview of Michelle Obama’s early years and get full access to rarely seen photos from the presidential primary trail through the 2008 Democratic National Convention, the monumental events of election night, the inauguration and early chapters of life in the White House.
Through fashion expert commentary, sketches, and interviews with Mrs. O herself, the book explores the story of a new era of American fashion.
