I guess that’s what you get these days for reaching fashion icon status – a debatably useful, moderately unattractive doll that’s supposed to be YOU even though it doesn’t, in fact, really look like you. Congratulations, Michelle. After all that hubbub surrounding the time you wore shorts, we have faith that you have the good humor to overlook this kind of thing.
However, we suppose it was only fair that this “action figure” be created (it debuts November 15th) since the same company, Jailbreak Toys, already made a Barack Obama figurine. And we do appreciate the Michelle Obama doll’s sartorially accurate outfits. She comes in three versions:
1. The black and red Narciso Rodriguez Election Day dress
2. The purple Maria Pinto “fist bump” dress
3. The black and white Donna Ricco dress worn on The View
We’d recommend dressing like Michelle Obama rather than keeping a doll around that’s dressed like Michelle Obama. We’re happy to cop the First Lady’s style in this purple dress from White House favorite J. Crew or in a Kay Unger black and white sleeveless sheath.
