Michelle Obama Shows Her Wild Side On Halloween (And Makes A Fashion Statement, As Usual)
November 2, 2009
Ravishing even in disguise, the First Lady wore fuzzy ears, dramatic eye makeup, and a leopard print twinset to greet White House trick-or-treaters on Halloween. Albeit cute, we’re thinking Michelle went for the cop-out costume here, since she probably already had the safari-chic ensemble hanging in her closet. At least she was more creative than her husband, who reportedly went as a “middle-aged Dad.” Hate to break it to you Barack, but you’re not fooling any costumed kiddies with that one.
We don’t advocate for leopard print worn over more leopard print (other than on Halloween) but in moderation; as Michelle’s chic holiday ensemble shows, this playful pattern can work. Karina Grimaldi’s sexy silk halter dress and J.Crew’s ruffled abstract leopard print cardigan are both fun and tasteful every day options.
