Michelle Obama in Sophie Theallet

Brooklyn-based, French designer Sophie Theallet was awarded this year’s CFDA Fashion Fund grant of $200,000, Vogue reports.  Theallet is already a favorite of Michelle Obama’s (that’s her shirtdress the ahead-of-the-curve First Lady donned last spring).

With the advent of this grant, one thing we’re rooting for is seeing Theallet’s clothing online (right now you’ll have to visit your local, physical outpost of Barney’s).  In the meantime, cop the look with a pretty, feminine shirtdress, like this one from Ann Taylor.  You can pair it with this Alexander Wang blazer – Wang was last year’s CFDA award recipient, and he’s since become practically ubiquitous.
