  • Michelle Obama Style Alert- First Lady Wears Vintage Style and Does NOT Look Like an Old Lady

      I’ll Have What She’s Having : A mellow hued watercolor floral print that although vintage inspired, looks fresh and age appropriate on First Lady Michelle Obama. A rich print on a classic 60’s inspired princess coat could have gone all wrong on someone Michelle Obama’s age, as it could have aged her beyond her years if it weren’t for some modern updates and a slightly more relaxed silhouette that took away the Jackie Kennedy edge from her ensemble.

    Penelope Cruz Oscars

    From Penelope Cruz’s retro-Hollywood inspired Armani Prive gown to a parade of matronly gala dresses, you never know what to expect from the style scene at the Oscars and this year’s 84th annual Academy Awards served as no exception –although a cold one indeed.
