Happy President’s Day!

We’re celebrating this American holiday by commemorating the lovely First Ladies who have stood by their Presidents, with not only amazing support, but also with incredible style!

When Michelle Obama wears something, it becomes the next big thing. Many designers, including Jason Wu, Derek Lam, and Zac Posen have been honored to have their careers boosted by Michelle wearing their designs to an event.

The Obama mama never misses the fashion mark, even though she doesn’t shy away from getting bold with color and pattern choices or out-of-this-world couture gowns.

 

Hillary Clinton

Clinton is the queen of pant suits, wearing them in virtually every color and pattern possible in her day. Hilary Clinton knows how to dress in a powerful manner, and her style is meant to be taken seriously.

Clinton has an affinity for wearing Ralph Lauren, who has designed many of her powerful looks, but she’s also worn Nina McLemore, who is all about powerful dressing.

 

Jackie Kennedy Onassis

One of the biggest icons in fashion, Jackie O never strayed from trying something outside of the norm. She had the luxury of many custom outfits from designer Oleg Cassini, but also wore some of the greats, like Christian Dior and Balenciaga.

Of course, her signature look was the pillbox hat and a darling skirt suit, but she was also known for dressing a little bit less sophisticated but still classy. There’s no doubt her fashion light will never dim.

 

Betty Ford

Betty Ford was a fashion maven, with a signature look that was reminicent of the sophisticated part of the 70s.

She had this cute bob that was youthful and elegant, and sported a host of brilliant colors and Chanel-esque tailored jackets. She wasn’t a huge fan of couture, so she had much of her clothing made by Albert Capraro, who at one point worked for Oscar de la Renta.
