Vivienne Westwood recently called the Michelle Obama‘s style “dreadful” and too “conservative.” The outspoken British designer, who also criticized the Duchess of Cambridge, told the New York Times that MObama’s style doesn’t suit her. The public certainly seems to disagree; whenever Michelle Obama wears something, it tends to fly off the racks (her $93 ASOS dress sold out…twice). In fact, Vivienne Westwood’s new line of Melissa jellies makes us doubt her style. The collection features bright heels and flats with giant hearts, bows and orbs on them. Considering there was practically a national panic over Michelle Obama’s bangs, we can’t imagine what would happen if the First Lady wore these jelly pumps.
We are growing concerned that jellies are the new “it” shoes. First, Jason Wu created a line for Melissa and now Karl Lagerfeld is designing a 4 part collection for the shoe brand.
