Obama Style

Since he stepped into the national spotlight, Barack Obama has been celebrated as a style icon (Donatella Versace reportedly dedicated her Spring/Summer 2009 collection to him). But Michelle begs to differ. As she told "Access Hollywood" in July: "I think it's funny that he's involved in this fashion icon stuff because these pants," she points out, "he's had for probably ten years... and don't pan down to the shoes because we talked about getting new shoes." (Check out the holey shoes Obama wears.)

And the president-elect concurs: "I'm baffled by this whole thing myself because I hate to shop."

So it's no surprise that his casual wear could use a little improvement. Have a look and let us know if you have any suggestions.

 
As Barack Obama gets more comfortable with his new gig, so do his clothes. Every so often the president departs from his standard suit-and-tie look, and dons faded jeans, white sneakers, an athletic jacket, and maybe a backwards hat or a bicycle helmet. Here he is wearing one of those looks on Sunday, May 24th as he returns from Camp David. Click through to vote on whether or not you love these looks.
