Michelle Obama Ordered Thigh-High Boots From France: Report
Viva la France!, in the Obama household, at least. AFP is reporting that Michelle Obama has ordered two pairs of boots from French shoemaker Robert Clergerie: "A black pair with flat heels as well as another pair of calf-length boots in soft beige buckskin, both in size 41 (US size nine-and-a-half, British size seven)." Clergerie said that one of the styles was slightly changed at Michelle's request, an accommodation he's used to after working with Madonna, Bianca Jagger and French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy.
The Obamas have previously waved their French fashion flag high, with Sasha and Malia wearing Parisian label Dino E Lucia in the First Family photo.
