First Lady Michelle Obama shrugged off the Oscar De la Renta fiasco with poise and grace this past Friday. During an interview for ABC’s Good Morning America co-host Robin Roberts asked FLOTUS about De la Renta’s remarks. She calmly responded with:
“Women, wear what you love. That’s all I can say. That’s my motto.”
My first reaction was, “…you go girl!” I just could not hold it in, I was in awe at how simply perfect that response was. Once again the elegant and diplomatic First Lady beautifully communicates what A Lacey Perspective has been trying to convey all along — every female in this crazy world we call politics deserves to look and feel like a woman without hesitation.
So… “Woman, wear what you love.” Thank you, Mrs. Obama, I couldn’t have said it better myself.
