Digging through our closets: Michelle Obama's fashions

November 26, 2009 |  5:00 pm


Before heading to the holiday sales, get some fashion inspiration from some of our readers’ favorite features from 2009.

Google won't need to worry about removing these images of the first lady -- a gallery of her signature styles from the past year or so. It includes the now-famous Jason Wu inaugural gown that Times fashion critic Booth Moore described thus: "The one-shouldered style is sexy, and the powdery hue reflects the trends we saw on the Golden Globes red carpet" as well as the impressive metallic strapless number from Indian designer Naeem Khan, pictured above, that she wore to the Obamas' first state dinner. 

What do you think of how Mrs. O's fashion wardrobe is shaping up? Have you tried, or are you going to try, to incorporate any of her looks into your closet staples? Or are you so over it?
