Has anybody seen this yet? http://www.burdafashion.com/en/index.html
I love it. Burda is using Michelle Obama's style sense to sell patterns. The editors of Burda, or at least at their website have linked pictures of Mrs O to Burda patterns that can be used to get the look. I think Jackie Kennedy was the last First Lady to influence fashion in any way. Her style is still talked about. I doubt that Mrs O will have as lasting a fashion reputation. It's not that she isn't as memorable, but fashion just moves so much faster these days. I know that people are very vocal about what she wears, either hating it or loving it. It doesn't matter to me so much what she wears but how she wears it. She is so comfortable with her body and in her body that it is a joy to see. She is a tall woman who is proud to be tall. She is comfortable with her hips and rear end and she is a wonderful role model for our daughters.
My daughter says that it's a good thing that she has a great body image, because other wise she'd feel really fat trying to buy clothing in Korea. She is a thin, but curvy girl. Korean girls have no hips or bust. She's had it with trying to buy clothing in Korean stores, but through the grapevine heard about a Forever 21 store that has US sizes! She was thrilled to be a size small or medium again.
When you hear 8 or 10 year old girls talk about dieting it's sad and disturbing, and yet we have more childhood obesity than ever before. Of course, that's another topic.
