Michelle Obama Agrees: Not Costumed, but Character-Inspired * Halloween 2009

As mentioned in my earlier Halloween 2009 post, I’m a big advocate of being festive for Halloween. However, I prefer not to be costume, but character-inspired. Seems like icon Michelle Obama feels the same. She wore a leopard print sweater with cat-like eye makeup and fuzzy ears for Halloween. Sure, she likely has some other PR considerations to make when choosing not to go all plastic and polyester, but my guess is the First Lady’s sense of style dictates that elegance anyway. That said, I’ll love all costumes because they recall how what we put on our bodies contributes to our personae. Love it or hate it, fashion matters.

Party #1, hosted by an artist named Chris (?). Festive folks and great decorations:

    Michelle Obama is very charismatic just like her husband and it is the reason why i like her. I also feel that she could connect with people more easily than any other first ladies.
