Michelle Watch: Keeping The Faith In Feith
And you thought it was over. WWD reports that Michelle Obama arrived at a morning service at the Washington National Cathedral in a black Tracy Feith dress with a Japanese-style floral print. Though we’re quite familiar with Feith’s magical way with a frock, he’s far from being a household name. But this is turning out to be quite a year for the laidback, surfing designer. His collection for Target bows in May and now he’s earned coveted membership in the First Lady Closet Club. Feith told WWD that he believed Mrs. Obama bought the dress from Ikram, the boutique whose owner Ikram Goldman is a dyed-in-the-wool lover of fashion and the quiet force behind Mrs. O’s smart picks. And the dress? Though yesterday’s Isabel Toledo coat and dress and Jason Wu gown provoked serious debate, this one, in our estimation, is an indisputable success with its classic, Jackie-esque silhouette of boat neck, full skirt, and elbow-length sleeves.
