Don’t expect to see Michelle Obama wearing Vivienne Westwood anytime soon…

Vivienne Westwood is one opinionated lady and she’s not afraid to share those thoughts running through her mind with the whole world. Nope, there’s no holding this lady back. She recently had an interview with The New York Times and was asked several questions ranging in topics from the upcoming Metropolitan Museum of Art’s exhibition on Punk clothing to the clothing of Michelle Obama. Now, the world is pretty much overlooking everything else in that article other than Vivienne Westwood’s comments on The First Lady. As it turns out, Westwood isn’t a huge fan of Michelle Obama’s. After being asked about her criticisms of Kate Middleton and her ever changing look, the conversation changed to look a little something like this…

Q.You must love our first lady, who is famous for recycling her clothes.

A. Don’t talk about her. It’s dreadful what she wears.

Q.What?

A.I don’t want to talk about it. Really, I can’t. She’s a very nice
looking lady, but it’s a nonstarter regarding clothes that suit her.
Jackie Kennedy was a different matter altogether. It just has to suit
her and be something that makes a human being more glamorous. That’s
what fashion is there for. It’s there to help, not just to make you look
more conservative.

And there you have it. If you ever thought you’d see Michelle Obama in a Vivienne Westwood dress, I’d say the chances are now slim. Although, wouldn’t it just be fantastic if she stepped out in Washington tomorrow wearing a Westwood creation.  {New York Times}
