One of the most iconic women in American history, Michelle Obama has many accomplishments under her belt. An advocate for childhood health and education, she’s known for investing her efforts into the future generation. Along with her selfless nature, the former First Lady is known for her tact, elegance, and overwhelmingly big heart. Michelle has also been a champion for American designers: Thakoon, Brandon Maxwell, and Cushnie et Ochs are just some of the brands she's thrust in the spotlight. She set the fashion bar high when she attended the Inaugural Ball in 2009 in a Jason Wu stunner, and has not let us down since. This is my love letter to Michelle Obama: former First Lady of the United States, a staple to and for charities, style icon, and forever American royalty.
