Michelle Obama and Laura Bush took a tour of the White House living quarters as America shares with the world the peaceful transmission of power. So what does everyone want to talk about with the current First Lady and the upcoming First Lady - fashion, of course.
Fear and Clothing from Australia has this, " Michelle Obama is not a faux aristocrat in Ralph Lauren's latest ad campaign for class war. She's not the unlikely black preppy princess that Tommy Hilfiger's made a career out of cultivating - or, more likely, manufacturing - with his Polo-lite rainbow coalition magazine spreads. Nor is she a celebrity "fashion consultant" for a new line of Exclusive-to-Target yoga-lates exercise gear - designer colours, sizes 6 to 16, yoga-lates mat sold separately.."
The Observer has this, " After opting for a controversial black and red number by New York designer Narciso Rodriguez on Election Night, Michelle Obama visited the White House today in a conservative (if snug) red dress by Maria Pinto, a Chicago favorite and creator of the blue dress Ms. Obama wore at the Democratic National Convention and the purple sheath she wore the night her husband claimed the Democratic nomination.

"This after a much-publicized appearance in J. Crew on The Tonight Show in the wake of news of Sarah Palin's $150,000 department store splurge." Photos are here, did she make a comeback?
