This American Vogue cover was just revealed, starring none other than FLOTUS, Michelle Obama. Is it just me or is there something a bit 1980s about this whole get-up? Perhaps it’s the lip liner, or the bright blue tailoring (Reed Krakoff, F your I), but I remain unconvinced. Will I buy it? For posterity, sure – but not because I like the cut of its gib.
