Michelle Obama as fashion royalty? There's a stamp for that.
After Britain's Sunday Times Style magazine ranked the FLOTUS at the top of its Best Dressed List (Kate Middleton, who?), they promoted their issue by releasing an ad created by the Grey London agency featuring Michelle Obama wearing a crown on a British first-class postage stamp, a space traditionally reserved for the Queen of England's profile.
According to the style mag, the first lady achieved the top honor “for understanding that, as her primary role as first lady is visual, fashion can be a force for good used to inspire and entertain."
The stamp campaign comes off the heels of Michelle Obama's recent Vogue cover where she wore a blue Reed Krakoff dress with a flourish of purple at the neckline. Inside the issue she said, "I always say that women should wear whatever makes them feel good about themselves. That’s what I always try to do."
"I also believe that if you’re comfortable in your clothes it’s easy to connect with people and make them feel comfortable as well. In every interaction that I have with people, I always want to show them my most authentic self."
Michelle Obama isn't the first style icon to be depicted as royalty. Earlier this month, Grey London created a campaign promoting the best dressed list featuring Kate Moss resembling the famous closed-eyed Elizabeth portrait by Chris Levine and Victoria Beckham who was modeled after an 1882 photo of the Queen.
