Robin Givhan Defends Michelle Obama’s Fashion Choices and a Healthy Fascination With Them

Are we still talking about this? Of course we are. Robin Givhan thinks it's all gotten out of hand: "[T]he topic of Michelle Obama's attire, which seemed to have settled into a zone of curious chatter, light banter and, I like to think, measured analysis, seems to once again be taking on the kind of outsize importance it had in the early days of the administration. It's a kind of prominence that Obama had worked mightily to tamp down." At the end of her thoughtful take on why it's okay, to an extent, to discuss MObama's clothes, she confirms that White House aide Meredith Koop is assisting Michelle with her wardrobe. [Daily Beast]
