Andre Leon Talley On Michelle Obama: Fashion Editor Calls FLOTUS' Style 'Extraordinary'...Duh! (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

In the newest installment of Vogue.com's "Mondays With Andre," fashion editor and former "American's Next Top Model" judge Andre Leon Talley does what he does best--critique (and apparently, lecture). However, in this case his opinions are decidedly in the form of praise, which makes sense since he's talking about our First Lady Michelle Obama. Well, duh!

If you've been hibernating for the past few days then you've missed a string of sensational FLOTUS style moments-- the Kids' Inaugural Concert, official swearing-in, Inauguration Day and Tuesday's National Prayer Service--that yet again confirms her place as one of (if not, the) best-dressed woman to ever step foot in the White House.

Andre agrees. Vogue's larger-than-life contributing editor waxes poetic about Michelle's singular style and uses the word "extraordinary" three times in the 49-second video!

FLOTUS' 2009 Inauguration Day ensemble by Isabel Toledo tops Andre's favorite looks. But he also notes Michelle's ability to repeat outfits and wear her hair pulled back into a ponytail, while looking effortlessly chic.

"She looks young and she looks as if she's a First Lady who realizes that fashion can be fun," Andre proclaims.

Yeah, we know--she's fabulous!
