Lucky First Lady

Just as the Michelle-a-Porter wardrobe watch approaches a fever pitch, Lucky Magazine throws some kindling on the fire with the new weekly online feature, Shop the Look: Michelle Obama.

Tempting enough that Mrs. O shops at the stores of the (quasi) common man like J. Crew, now we've got a shopping guide to hand it to us on a silver platter. And judging from the popularity of the tireless First Lady fashion tracker blog, Mrs. O - the site attracts almost 170,000 visitors per month - people will bite. Because of Michelle's accessible choices, Lucky's page can take you right to the link for the item in the picture, whether it's a shopping mall grab or a special piece from a cracker jack, as-yet-unknown independent designer, or give you their pick for a close match. An inaugural STLMO post offers up a skirt and top from Newport News and Express, respectively, for the First Lady's recent Sophie Theallet daytime outfit. Because anyone can take a shopping spree at Saks Fifth Avenue, ahem, but it may take a little hand-holding to nail the fresh intelligence of Michelle's womanly wear.

So repeat after me: Yes we can refuse to emulate the 20-year-old skinny starlet's running-to-Coffee Bean wardrobe! It's time for a real change.
