And Another Opinion on Michelle Obama’s Alexander McQueen Dress

Kate Betts responding to conflict over the First Lady's Alexander McQueen State dinner dress: "Michelle Obama’s impact on fashion extends far beyond the 'made in America' label stitched into her dress. The optimism, glamour and accessibility that she communicates through her style of dressing transcends cultural borders and economic boundaries. Yes, she is sometimes an ambassador for American designers, but more important, she is an ambassador for the self-possession that defines American style ... [H]er decision to wear an American-designed dress doesn’t make it easier for American designers to sell more clothes in the Chinese market." [NYT]
