Designer Vivienne Westwood came for First Lady Michelle Obama and her style in an interview with the New York Times. When asked about Michelle she huffed, “Don’t talk about her. It’s dreadful what she wears.” Insert your sucking of the teeth here.
The exchange went as follows:
Q. And to provoke? The latest I read was that you criticized Kate Middleton for wearing too many clothes.
A. I didn’t criticize her. I said that it would be a wonderful thing for her to wear her clothes more than once. She’s getting this wonderful look, but if she has a red look today, why does she have to wear the blue look tomorrow? It’s just by way of an example to other people that you should buy less. Don’t buy so many clothes.
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.
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.
