People Magazine has placed Michelle Obama and Fergie Ferg at the top of their best dressed list. While I’m (of course) not surprised that Michelle got the nod, I’m going to have to question to the integrity of People’s “hot or not” fashion evaluation system.
Rounding out the top 10 — and making a campaign statement for fashion — was Michelle Obama, wife of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, who was given high marks for a look that was “classic and confident.”
“She has a look. She works it with confidence, and she knows what looks good on her,” said People’s Style Editor Clarissa Cruz.
But Obama played down the notion that her sense of style might be anything close to couture, telling People: “Some of my favorite summer dresses are from Gap and H&M.”
Others who made the cut include: Kate Hudson, Anne Hathaway, Gwyneth Paltrow, Charlize Theron, Eva Mendes, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna and Heidi Klum.
OK. That stellar list of fashionistas makes me, once again, really question Fergie’s inclusion on this list. Do they not have eyes?
Oh, and for those of you playing at home, Michelle continues to rack up the fashion accolades (even when she has the occasional off day) while for her rival future First Lady Cindy McCain is getting …. hmmm, sounds like crickets. At least some invertebrate find her fashion hot.
