5 Runway Looks We Wish Michelle Obama Would Wear

Forgive us for playing stylist, but upon careful consideration of the throngs of looks and photos streaming in from NYFW, we couldn't help but think of one of our favorite style muses (and heroes), Michelle Obama. Our First Lady has a sense of style we wish they'd teach in college, and such beautiful poise that we can't help but want to play dress-up. We've spotted looks that seem like natural choices, given her past triumphs, plus some risky business that we'd love to see her try. In a perfect world, Mrs. O. would step out this spring in one of the five looks we've chosen, which you're invited to click through. Comment below, and let us know what you think of our First Lady fashion, and if there's a look you think we missed, tell us. We all get to play stylist today.
