Michelle Obama is wearing her string of pearls with a black Micheal Kors dress. The iconic White House Portrait that was taken February 2009 it can very well be compared to Audrey Hepburn's dress in the 1961 film "Breakfast at Tiffany's. Audrey Hepburn, who was also known for her impeccable sense of style, is seen in the movie with a pearl necklace, black opera gloves and a black Givency dress. Audrey whose "style legacy" lives on, is known for her glamorous, luxurious, yet simple and elegant style. Just as Hepburn made her imprint, Michelle is making hers, in the White House.
Icon Jackie-O can be seen wearing similar dress: long sleeve with shallow scooped neckline at Bergdorf Goodman when her husband was a U.S. Senator from Massachusetts in 1959. Also a fashion ICON.Jackie was seen in this cut dress very often in the 60's. Barbra Streisand was also seen in the 60's in this very popular crew-veck cut, A-line silhouette.
Jackie used this fashion silhouette and cut very often in the 1960's it was a very modest, classy and sexy look for women. Let Michelle make it sexy again.
