Michelle Obama is Vanity Fair’s “Best Dressed”
Sorry Sarah Jessica Parker. Move over Angelina Jolie.
The winner of Vanity Fair’s 2008 International Best Dressed List isn’t a Hollywood hottie, it’s possible future First Lady Michelle Obama.
In a just-released slide show of the winners, the magazine’s editors praised Barack Obama’s wife’s sleek style, calling her “our commander-in-sheath.”
It’s not the first time Obama has been lauded for her fashion sense, but writer Amy Fine Collins says that her spot on the top of a list usually dominated by Hollywood celebrities is unprecedented.
“It’s an election year so it’s very interesting that a lot of political figures have surfaced on this list,” she said. “Politics are on people’s minds as much as fashion.”
Also on the list: Fellow political wife Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, James Bond actor Daniel Craig and British soccer star David Beckham.
Elizabeth Snead has a full analysis of the winners — and the losers — over at our Dish Rag blog.
