I think FLOTUS is so admired for her fashion simply because people have so much love for her they don’t know what to do with it. Our love spilleth over. Because deep down, we all know that she is is a sassy-pants FLOTUS like no other. We all know that she wields all the power in her relationship with the most powerful man in the world. And we all know that her safe-to-champion causes, like healthy eating and childhood obesity, are just to give her a lady-like, FLOTUS-appropriate activity to do, lest those whiny Republicans complain about her looking too influential or powerful.

My hunch is that after her husband has finished his tenure as POTUS, she’ll make her own Senate run or end up in the next president’s cabinet.
