Oscar de la Renta vs. Michelle

This past week, Michelle Obama’s fashion choices have been almost as diverse as her itinerary—she wore Etro, Junya Watanabe, and Azzedine Alaia as she jumped from London to Prague to Turkey. But Oscar de la Renta isn’t going to let the First Lady off for ignoring major American designers. “Our industry right now is having a very difficult time,” he said. “I think it would be great if the First Lady dressed in American styles. There are a lot of talented people here too.” And of that cardigan Michelle wore to meet the Queen: “You don’t,” he said, “go to Buckingham Palace in a sweater.”
