Somebody might be able to give me this book. Ever since I posted about Mrs. O’s (affordable) classy style, I have stalked her blog and followed her at Twitter. And now she comes out with a book.
‘Mrs. O The Face of Fashion Democracy’ book available at amazon.com and in Kindle Edition (Kindle Book).
The author is Mary Tomer, the same person who started the Mrs. O blog, which reports about Michelle’s daily outfits. I love reading this blog! You should add the blog to your feeds!
Book Description from the Publisher’s Website:
Celebrated for her style and substance, Michelle Obama has transformed the role of first lady and become a 21st century icon, attracting attention from all over the world. The qualities so admired in her – intelligence, strength and charisma – radiate through her personal style, which has united accessibility with high-wattage glamour. The clothes, like the woman, feel both familiar and inspirational. Readily mixing high-end labels with more affordable brands, with a focus on craftsmanship and artistry, Mrs. O has elevated the notion of real value and ushered in a new era of "fashion democracy".
Building on the success of Mrs-O.org – the Web site that chronicles Michelle Obama’s style – MRS. O: THE FACE OF FASHION DEMOCRACY takes a closer look at America’s modern style icon, featuring more than 120 photographs of the first lady and delving into the back story of her clothes and accessories. It also goes behind the scenes with interviews from her favorite designers, including Isabel Toledo, Jason Wu, Michael Kors, Maria Pinto and Isaac Mizrahi.
Opening with a brief overview of Michelle Obama’s early years, the book goes on to provide rarely seen photos from behind-the-scenes on the presidential primary trail through the 2008 Democratic National Convention, the monumental events of election night, the inauguration and early chapters of life in the White House. The final chapter hears the opinions of Mrs. O’s adoring fans – giving the last word to the people.
Original photographs of Michelle Obama’s most iconic looks, along with commentary from fashion experts, top off this tactile visual feast. Woven together with sketches and illustration inspired by the first lady, the book reveals the story of a new era of American fashion.
Quoting a review:
Michelle’s tastes are chic and timeless. With her inner beauty and warmth she remains approachable, a model of self confidence and professionalism. Author Mary Tomer’s book, Mrs. O is a stunning book, in detail and composition. An interesting read from beginning to end.
She brings fashion to ordinary women folk like me. Love you Mrs. O!
