Vivienne Westwood Calls Michelle Obama’s Style ‘Dreadful’
When she’s not being a model mother, doting wife or fighting childhood obesity, Michelle Obama is looking flawless. Whether it’s sweeping evening gowns or cutting edge coats, we’re always waiting to see what designer she’ll don next. Vivienne Westwood–a designer known for catering to the modern, stylish woman–seems like the perfect addition to our FLOTUS’ regal style. However, Westwood couldn’t disagree more with people fawning over Mo’s look.
“It’s dreadful what she wears,” the English designer said in an interview with The New York Times. “She’s a very nice looking lady, but it’s a nonstarter regarding clothes that suit her,” “Jackie Kennedy was a different matter altogether. It just has to suit her and be something that makes a human being more glamorous. That’s what fashion is there for. It’s there to help, not just to make you look more conservative.”
Westwood joins a short list of designers who outwardly dislike Mrs. O’s fashion and beauty choices.
