*In a recent WWD article by Bridget Foley called Dressing Michelle: Major Designers Wait for First Lady’s Call, the writer asks “Where in the world are Donna, Ralph and Calvin?” and quotes designers like Oscar de la Renta who decry Madame O’s wardrobe choices, saying, “You don’t go to Buckingham Palace in a sweater” and, “I don’t object to the fact that Mrs. Obama is wearing J. Crew…But there are a lot of great designers out there. I think it’s wrong to go in one direction only.” Vera Wang adds, “I love seeing young designers and their vision…On the other hand, of course, I wish she would consider some of us, because I think we also have contributions to make.”
You certainly can’t please everyone!
