Yesterday Michelle Obama chose to wear a $2,000 dress by Sophie Theallet…


…a French designer most notable for using an all black cast in her Spring 2009 ready to wear runway show:



She insisted she wasn’t making a political statement by using all black models, saying in an interview with’s Laird Borrelli-Persson, “I was thinking about colors, and they look amazing on dark skin, so it came naturally.”

Do you love Michelle Obama’s choice?

  1. I love Michelle’s choice. However, I love Sophie even more for using an all black cast for her runway show! Has that ever been done by a designer that isn’t black themselves?

  2. I love that Michelle Obama is showcasing yet another less-known designer and doing so very well.
