Michelle O’s Floral Debate Dress + Chanel Iman made Gucci history
Michelle Obama has become quite the fashionista during the 2008 Presidential campaign so it came as no surprise when she decided to stick with Thakoon once again.
After all, Michelle’s DNC floral dress was all the rage back in August. Michelle wore this fitted floral print dress with a huge black bow at the first Presidential debate between Barack Obama and John McCain.
Looking past the print, the fit of the Thakoon Fall 2008 dress was great, don’t you agree? Well if you don’t, would you please check out the way Barack looked at Michelle after the debate?
Michelle’s Thakoon debate dress retails for $1,250.
I have to agree with The Black Snob on Michelle’s latest Thakoon pick… The cut of the dress was marvelous. It flattered her figure amazingly. I couldn’t help but notice her silhouette from the back and thought that is the fugliest but most gorgeously fitted dress I’ve seen her wear thus far. [BLACK SNOB]
Watch the debate:
Diversity on the Gucci Spring 2009 runway show during Milan Fashion Week finally made its global appearance! Chanel Iman became the first black model to walk the runway for Gucci since Tom Ford left in 2005. Although this positive accomplishment is always great, what’s up with Chanel being the only black model to collaborate with the brand since the past three years?! To be fair, Rihanna also has a upcoming fashion contract (Tattoo Hearts) with the brand which is expected this December.
