So that’s how the First Lady does it?
I was searching for a title for this post and then I stumbled upon a different picture of Michelle Obama and the president at the 34th annual Kennedy Center Honors last night. She is actually wearing flats. I love how the hair is pinned up, the gorgeous chandelier earrings dangle, to the bare neck that lets the beautiful cobalt blue Vera Wang tulle gown do the talking. Everything is great…and then we get to the shoes. Does she do this often? I guess she went with flats so she doesn’t stand taller than her husband? This look is perfection, except for the shoe choice. I rarely suggest ballet flats for casual looks and definitely not when wearing a beautiful gown to a prestigious event. I guess the flats don’t completely kill the look for me, but I would give it a 7 instead of a 10. Shoe choice can sometimes make or break a look ladies, remember that!
The event honoring Meryl Streep, Neil Diamond, and other artistic achievers in music will air on CBS on December 27th so we can see more of Michelle Obama’s dress in action. Anne Hathaway, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Elmo were among the guests in attendance.
ps. – this is reason no. 37 why I would like my husband to be taller than me…even when I’m in heels.
