Blue was the color for First Lady Michelle Obama this week. After donning a cobalt blue Vera Wang gown for the Kennedy Center Honors, FLOTUS wore a metallic blue dress with black pearls by Erickson Beamon, to the White House Hanukkah reception. The First Couple, along with Vice President Biden and Dr Biden, welcomed 550 guests to the Thurday evening celebration. Click here to view the President's remarks at the reception.
FLOTUS continues to set fashion trends and launch the career of new designers. Former ESSENCE beauty editor, Mikki Taylor, has even penned a stylebook based on the First Lady’s style titled “Commander in Chic.”
A member of the ever watchful group of patriotic citizens that count every penny the Obamas spend has informed us that if FLOTUS and the weeMichelles leave for vacation and the President stays behind to handle budget business it could cost taxpayers over $100,000. Somehow I think that if the First Family just barricaded themselves in the White House and ate only ate hot dogs and beans that would still be a problem for these White House watchers.
