When she was in Europe, Michelle Obama wore labels by designers who were (gasp) not American, including Azzedine Alaïa, Etro, Gunex, and Moschino. The designers of those labels are as ecstatic, as you'd expect. “She wore it well; I couldn’t hope for better," Alaïa said. Oscar de la Renta scolded MObama for crossing over to foreign territory, and to that Alaïa responded, “It’s not up to him to give her lessons; Michelle Obama is of her time; Oscar de la Renta is no longer." Hisssssss. [WWD]
