The designer who has dressed the wives of US presidents from Mamie Eisenhower to Laura Bush believes that the newest First Lady Michelle Obama’s dressing sense is not up to the mark.
Arnold Scaasi tells US fashion bible Women’s Wear Daily: “She’s great-looking, she has a great personality and she’s obviously very bright, but something is amiss.”
His criticism stems from the fact that Mrs Obama wore a cardigan when she met The Queen during the G20 summit earlier this month.
“It should have been a jacket,” The Sun quoted him, as saying.
Scaasi has written several books, the most recent entitled, Women I Have Dressed (and Undressed).
