Isabel Toledo was shocked and thrilled to see Michelle Obama wearing one of her creations at the Vogue/Calvin Klein fund-raiser in June. “She looked amazing,” Toledo told us at F.I.T.'s Couture Council cocktail celebration at her penthouse loft. The best part was that Obama bought the dress at Ikram in Chicago. “I understand that she buys a lot of my work, which is really … I’m very, very honored for that. It’s even better than her contacting me, the fact that she just goes out and buys it!” Toledo said. Toledo says that since then, the hopeful First Lady’s people have been in touch, but she’s mum on what she’s whipping up for Mrs. Glambama. While she says she’d be happy to dress Michelle in anything, after much prodding, Toledo admitted that she has, in fact, been thinking about designs for an inaugural dress should the situation arise. But those will remain in her head unless the Obama camp reaches out to her. “For me, that’s the way to do it,” she says. —Bennett Marcus
