The latest issue of Vogue features the new first lady on the cover and in a photo spread modeling a black dress by Narciso Rodriguez and a magenta dress by Jason Woo (who also designed her inaugural ball gown). All the outfits would have been taboo before November 5.
“I’m not going to pretend that I don’t care about it,” the First Lady said. “But I also have to be very practical. In the end, someone will always not like what you wear — people just have different tastes.”
Now we understand why Juan Williams caught so much flak for calling her “Stokely Carmichael in a dress.” He should have said, “Stokely Carmichael in a Jason Woo.”
