This Week in Chic: First Lady Michelle Obama, Kim Kardashian, Target’s Black Women in Hollywood Dinner, and More!

Happy Thursday everyone!

The glamour of the 2013 Academy Awards are behind us, but Fashion Month is still chugging on in the City of Lights, giving us all our necessary dose of style.

There was so much fashion during Oscars weekend so we’re still recapping hot looks from the fêtes, as well as a bit of model realness on the streets of Paris and elsewhere.

Let’s get into this week’s hottest ensembles shall we?


They should’ve ended the show after Robin Roberts and First Lady Michelle Obama posed together on Good Morning America. The color! The arms! I can now live the rest of the week wanting nothing more.


Khloe and Kim Kardashian grabbed a bite to eat at Stanley Restaurant in Sherman Oaks, California. Khloe wore her favorite $880 Alice + Olivia Raglan Sleeve Leather Jacket, a $483 One by marna ro Shirred Waist Dress with a Leather Bodice, and her beloved $1,695 Giuseppe Zanotti Serpent Sandals, while Kim mixed high and low in a $50 Kardashian Kollection for Sear’s Colorblock Dress and her coveted Tom Ford Ankle Strap Pumps.
