1 Way Michelle Obama Shows Her Love for Latinos

Michelle Obama

Even before she lived in the White House, Michelle Obama has been showing her love to Latino designers by constantly wearing their designs. FLOTUS is loyal. She especially likes to wear Cuban designer Narciso Rodriguez, Chilean designer Maria Cornejo and Cuban-born Isabel Toledo — and note, she’s worn their labels to some of the most historical moments of the Obama administration.

Most recently, and for the last State of the Union address of the Obama presidency, Michelle chose a sleeveless, banded-bodice bright marigold dress in wool with a high neckline. The dress came from the ready-to-wear Narciso Rodriguez Fall 2015 collection. And just to prove the influence of the First Lady, the dress sold out even before Obama finished his speech.

The First Lady wore another Narciso Rodriguez for yet another historical event. She chose a body-flattering dress in black with a fiery red design on election day 2008, the day Obama won the presidency for the first time.

FLOTUS doesn’t just support Latino designers, she supports the entire Latino community. At a Latino Broadway celebration at the White House, she wore another red-colored Narciso Rodriguez to get her groove on.

Michelle Obama also loves the designs of Maria Cornejo. Her designs are both sophisticated and fun. And we all know the First Lady loves bright colors.

At a school event, the First Lady wore a bright lime-green asymmetrical shirt, matched with purple and silver accessories to have fun with the kids.

Isabel Toledo


For one of the most historic events of the Obama presidency, the 2009 Presidential Inauguration, FLOTUS wore a lime-green lace design by Isabel Toledo. The dress was a midi bodycon dress with a matching coat of the same length. She matched the ensemble with green leather gloves and green pumps.

But it wasn’t the first time she wore an original from Toledo. The First Lady used to wear her designs even before she moved to the White House. Isabel Toledo sold her designs at Ikram, a Chicago boutique.
