Michelle Obama Has never looked better… I think that the new hair style is the main reason and made all the difference! It sort of softened her face and made her look young and feminine …. love it on her
I also loved her fashion choices for Inaugural celebrations… The cuts of both outfits were exactly right for her shape…They made her athletic figure look more feminine… She looked so chic and modern… and ready for whatever the next 4 years will bring!!!
Michelle chose a Black and Navy (necktie-inspired) checkered coat by Thom Browne, a JCrew belt, Reed Krakoff boots. The look was fished off with a pop of purple JCrew gloves (that are already sold out online!!!).
For the Inaugural Ball Michelle chose Jason Wu again … The cut was perfect on her… and the colour made her look so radiant.
The Wall Street Journal did a fun comparison between Michelle’s fashion choices in the last Inauguration in 2009 and this year one!… click here to see it.
This is one of my favorite homes…..It’s in the Upper East Side of Manhattan and before being a townhouse it used to be 12 separate apartments!!! This incredible place belongs to designer Reed Krakoff and his interior designer wife Delphine.
I love how she filled their home with beautiful and thoughtful pieces of art and furniture. There are pieces from Louise Nevelson, Robert Motherwell, and Joseph Beuys, names that are usually associated with museums, not homes!!! “We only buy things that to us are extraordinary,” Delphine says….. looking at those pictures one could see how each piece was carefully considered and chosen!!!
In the living room, Alexander Calder’s 1971 mobile Two Black Discs and Six Others floats above a Jean Ary sculpture, André Dubreuil candelabras, and a Guy de Rougemont coffee table.
Delphine leans on a 1930s Serge Roche table. In the background is Frank Stella’s 1974 painting Concentric Squares and sconces by Maria Pergay.
In the sitting room, the walls are decorated with Allan McCollum’s abstract installation Plaster Surrogates. Joris Laarman’s silver Bone chair sits in the foreground.
In the master bedroom are an Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann vanity, a 1920s-era bed by Jean-Michel Frank, and a table by Marc Newson.
The upstairs sitting room features a mirrored mantel by Serge Roche, circa 1930, which he made for his own private residence…. and I love how the Emilio Pucci pillows add a bit of color.
