Yes, I know this is a pipe dream of mine and I stand all alone in my desire to witness history made a second time with Michelle LaVaughn Obama, elected by Americans as our first Black American Woman as President Of The United states as well as America’s first Woman POTUS.
BUT a brotha can dream…..
Hat Tip/Shout Out to The Grio:
Mrs. Obama chose a relatively unknown female African-American designer, Laura Smalls, for her dress when her husband accepted the Democratic nomination. We bet that designer’s social stock skyrocketed! Laura Smalls’ very feminine silhouette combined with a striking pattern and off-the-shoulder cut made this look flirty, yet formal.

First lady Michelle Obama wears a designer who was new for her this year, Thom Browne, to a presidential debate in October. The first lady also wore this dress during the Democratic National Convention, an act that would for her become a trend. Her “victory” dress on election night was a previously worn Michael Kors piece. (Photo: Getty Images)
First lady Michelle Obama wore Naeem Khan for the White House Correspondents’ Dinner held in April for a look that absolutely dazzled the public. Unlike recent first ladies, Michelle Obama is not afraid of color, large accessories, or showing her arms and shoulders. (Photo: Getty Images)
In March, the president and first lady hosted the prime minister of Great Britain and his wife. Mrs. Obama wore a bold statement necklace and Marchesa gown in rich blue for the occasion. This updo hairstyles shows a versatility with her coiffure that she often exhibited in 2012. (Photo: Getty Images)
In (very cool) mom-mode, Michelle Obama attends the Nickelodeon’s 25th Annual Kids’ Choice Awards with daughters Sasha and Malia.

This Michael Kors gown worn to the Kennedy Center Honors this year in Washington, D.C. was another gasp-worthy dress. Drenched in gold and encrusted embellishments, the first lady is able to make what could appear gaudy effortlessly elegant. (Photo: Getty Images)
Ever fashionable even while flexing her athletic skills, first lady Michelle Obama wore this gorgeous L’Wren Scott ensemble while attending a pro-fitness event for school children in Washington, D.C. in March. (Photo: Getty Images)
Michelle Obama wowed in this Tracy Reese dress, creating an immediate demand for the custom creation worn for her speech at the Democratic National Convention. Somewhat body-conscious in construction it is outfits like these that made the first lady into a walking advertisement for her health and fitness initiatives. (Photo: Getty Images)
During her trip to the Olympics over the summer to support Team U.S.A. in London, the first lady wore this stunning jacket by J. Mendel. As beautiful as she looked, some balked at the frock’s $7,000 price tag. Yet as a style moment, it certainly helped etch Obama into one’s mind as a classic, timeless beauty. (Photo: Getty Images)
First lady Michelle Obama wears J. Mendel to the BET Honors in January 2102, a show-stopping red number that takes advantage of her stature. Here is a woman who is not afraid to impress or be noticed. (Photo: INF)
