We touted Talbots as “One to watch in 2009” back in a January issue, and now Michelle Obama dons a dress from the recently made-over line on the May cover of Essence magazine. Talbots is actually looking a lot more like J. Crew now --particularly the way its catalogs are styled, so the line is probably familiar territory to the first lady.
But it’s not just what she is wearing that is intriguing, it’s the possibility of what she could wear that has designers inspired. With the world watching to see what she’ll wear next, it’s no surprise that Michelle Obama has become a muse to many.
