The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: First Lady Michelle Obama in Doo.Ri, Backstage at Lanvin Spring 2012, and the Full Video for Love on Top!
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

• First Lady Michelle Obama, avid supporter of new, young design talent, wore a dress by Korean designer Doo Ri Chung to the State Dinner honoring South Korea. The gown, modified for modesty (the original has a thigh-high slit) is from the designer’s Spring 2012 collection. (The Cut)

• Mario Boselli, head of the Italian Bureau of Fashion (Camera Nazionale della Moda), writes a letter explaining the 2012 Milan Fashion Week debacle: “The documentation relating to the dates of Milano Moda Donna September 2012 was examined by our Board of Directors and by the Designers’ Roundtable and it was demonstrated that no agreement had been made with the Council of Fashion Designers of America and the British Fashion Council about the years 2012-2013-2014 and, in any case, the postponement of the September 2012 dates by a week had never been at issue. Only the extension of the London Fashion Week from 4 to 5 days had been dealt with (see the Press Release dated September 16th 2008 sent by the British Fashion Council and agreed upon by everybody)… The Chambre Syndicale in Paris had followed a similar course by indicating the dates of the Paris shows in sequence with those of Milan. As a result, we must rebut the accusation leveled at CNMI by New York and London of not having complied with the agreement. Such an accusation, besides showing an arrogant and aggressive attitude towards Milan, was supported by unfair arguments aimed at—unilaterally—imposing decisions that had not been agreed upon.” Arrogant and aggressive! This coming from the man who said “let the best one win?” Okay, girl! (Racked)

The New York Times published a trend piece on men wearing stiletto heels. Gay men in stilettos? Fancy that! (NYT)

• Remember that fabulous maharaj necklace featured at the L.A.M.B. Spring 2012 presentation? Looks like you might be able to add it to your collection! Word is, all the jewelry was made in collaboration with nOir jewelry. Get excited! The pieces will be available this spring! (nitro:licious)

Lanvin takes us backstage for their Spring 2012 show. According to the press release, “We pierce into the intimate universe of the backstage, a tense atmosphere hangs in the air, as the dress rehearsal takes place behind closed doors.” Intense. (Lanvin)

•Speaking of videos, Beyonce has finally released the full viddy for “Love on Top.” Watch her work those Isabel Marant sneakers! (Necole Bitchie).

    The First Lady looks beautiful, and no I’m not buying into the “Beyonce isn’t pregnant” conspiracy. The whole conspiracy is just plain ole dumb to me. The video was cute, it sort of reminds me of a New Edition video. Nothing spectatular tho, she couldn’t kept it.

  10. Jaida says:

    I am LOVING this purple gown on First Lady Obama! I also like the beaded belt/detail. Gorgeous colors!

  11. Miss Rina says:

    The first Lady looks stunningly Georgous. Gay men in heels I see Derek J’s trend is hitting the mainstream huh?


  12. The T says:

    Great post! I love all the looks…esp. the First Lady! Side eye to the heels. LOL So not new…remember Kinky Boots. It’s beyond ridiculous now…you could write a novel on conspiracies and the Carters. The Fashion Weeks need to put “Love on Top” and not overlap. The first year I’d be able to travel about and get to more than one, they do this! :)

  13. African Mami says:

  14. QueenSafira says:

    I love that necklace!
