The Fashion Bomb News Break Down-021313-First Lady Michelle Obama Wears Jason Wu For State of the Union Address, Nicola Formichetti Styles Kim Kardashian For Elle US, and Topshop Collaborates With Google
• While most people were watching President Obama’s State of the Union address last night to hear his plans for the future of America, others were all too concerned with First Lady Michelle Obama’s choice of attire. Her ensemble consisted of a Jason Wu Pre-Fall 2013 black and oxblood sheath; a look that revealed her bare arms.


The ever vocal and critical folks on Twitter voiced their opinions, saying her fashion choice was inappropriate. While some felt it was a bit revealing, others like, Vanessa Friedman of the Financial Times had another criticism. “It’s not exactly an ‘I feel your pain middle class’ approach (sic her husband’s speech), which is interesting.”  said Friedman, alluding to the fact that Mrs. Obama’s dress isn’t available for purchase just yet. She did make one point, which I found particularly interesting: if Mrs. O continues to wear Jason Wu, will we lose interest and focus less on what she’s wearing? (Fashionista)

Mugler designer Nicola Formichetti styled Kim Kardashian for March 2013 editorial in ELLE’s  magazine. In a preview, we see Kim rocking a biker jacket with big hair and severe brows, along with a few soft, more glamorous shots. What do you think? (Grazia)


• Topshop collaborated with Google to create ‘The Future of the Fashion Show’; a project that will offer Topshop’s online audience access previously reserved for fashion insiders. There will be a “Model Cam” placed on select models, allowing the home viewer to see the show through the eyes of the model as they make their way down the runway. Taking it a step further, Google+ will then offer its viewers exclusive video diaries from Jourdan Dunn, Cara DelevingneRosie Tapner, and Ashleigh Good. The ‘Road to the Runway’ series will follow the models from their first fitting up the moment they hit the catwalk. On the YouTube end Topshop will broadcast the show live and offer a “red carpet hangout”, allowing the viewers to experience the arrivals of the guests. I’m interested to see how this plays out!

• There must be something in the water, because it’s definitely baby season! Actress Penelope Cruz just announced she is expecting her second child with husband and fellow actor Javiar Bardem. In a statement to Spanish television station, TVE, she said she’s, “tremendously happy and excited.” Congrats! (Vogue UK)

    I don’t think the criticism of Mrs. Obama’s dress is accurate. The writer seems to be implying that because the main focus of her husband’s speech was the economy she was supposed to look poor or less than fabulous. After all, this is Michelle Obama were discussing. She’s fierce and fabulous no matter what the situation.

  2. DannielleS says:

    Hmm…I don’t know what it is, but something is off about Kim’s shoot.

  3. MissKay says:

    Im falling in love with Beyonce…cant wait for 16th. However i refuse to pay $1600 for tickets I will be outside of Barclay

  4. Sabrina says:

    Lmaooo @MissKay. Those ticket prices are ridiculous.

  5. Anonymous says:


  6. ugh, i HATE to say this, but i really like the way they have styled Kim. Very italian vogue. they could have picked a gorgeous italian model instead though. im tired of seeing this chick.

  7. Bianca says:

    The video of the Knowles sisters is so cute… and Kim K looks great!

  8. ilovethissite says:

    I think I can officially say with confidence… I am SICK of seeing Kim K’s face on every website/magazine/celeb news site. She’s not giving us anything new lately and I just think it’s time to close the curtain on this one. Even with her pregnancy news… I just don’t care anymore. #yawn

  9. ilovethissite says:

    *celeb news show*

  10. TVF says:

    Since when is an arm “too much skin?”

    Kim… that ship has sailed. We’re over it.

  11. Indigo says:

    Those are some bad pics of Kim.. And I mean bad as in not nice.

  12. KimmieKim says:

    Kim looks like she was photoshopped and I can see those clothes better on a model then her.

  13. nike says:

    At first glance, I thought the first pic (His fair Lady) of Kim K was of the late, great Amy Winehouse.

  14. AshleyA says:

    I think people need to stop criticizing kim! Let her be. She is a very beautiful woman. she’s stylish to the BONE! I think this photoshoot shows how versatile she can be! She’s not JUST GLAM. she can be retro, she can do vogue, she can do elle, she can do playboy, that’s what makes money! Being able to be ” A FACE”. She is a business woman.

    AS FOR SOLANGE, i’m a huge fun and obsessed with this woman. She’s one of a kind. LOVE HER NATURAL HAIR! She really embraces being a numbian queen! We all should.

    Maybe this baby boom will show people how beautiful it is to have children with man that loves them eternally versus a man that loves them for just that night. Hopefully this shows people how to REALLY LOVE, and how babies need the love of two parents!

  15. yusufswifee says:

    I like this kim k shoot. she looks different and that is refreshing since we see so much of her.

    the shade that is thrown at the obama’s is laughable. so over it.

  16. LiteR says:

    Elle did not help themselves.

  17. Whatevs says:

    Kim is not on the cover…Taylor Swift is…and Kim’s cousin needs to get off FB and find a life…

  18. hipchick says:

    kim is looking extra skinny in her photos…also ppl like to claim kim is stylish but at the same time is it her that styles herself or is the credit due to a stylist..I can say I like what she wears but I don’t know if I can credit HER with having great style….and regarding michelle obama, huffing and puffing about bare arms is reaching ….what is it the 1800?? *rolls eyes*

  19. binks says:

    Oh please at Michelle Obama’s criticism with her dress. The FLOTUS wears a combination of high-low pieces in her wardrobe. And let’s not forget that the Obama’s are more middle class then pass presidents and some presidents in the future. Kim K. meh at this point it is like if you see one photo-shoot of hers you seen them all. LOL at Beyonce and Solange and congrats to Bardem and Cruz.

  20. nia says:

    kim k haters are the worse. they just sound dumb.

  21. lmonroedivine says:

    FLOTUS wears what she likes and she takes risks. That’s what makes her fashionable.

  22. saditty says:

    @ Anonymous, Kim has done Elle photoshoots before tho. Let the girl be. She isn’t hurting anybody… just taking advantage of the opportunities presented to her…like the rest of us would.

    IMO I actually prefer this to that Vogue photoshoot of a certain female celeb folks love to dickride ad nauseum.

    That vid of Bey + Solo is cute, btw :D

  23. Izhause says:

    She is The Flotus what is she supposed to look like a bum? Vanessa sounds real dumb and petty with an agenda. Leave Jason Wu alone !!!

  24. Tammy M. says:

    Kim is serving fiercness in that gown, I love this shoot. The pics are great.

    Kim is no more overexposed than half of the it folks in Hollywood, Get over it.
