Becoming Style Goals in Balenciaga
First, a moment of silence for each of us who were completely SLAYED when we saw what Michelle Obama wore for the Brooklyn installment of her "Becoming" book tour. Now that we've gathered ourselves, can we discuss the BOOTS. Cardi B might like "those Balenciagas, the ones that look like socks," but our #FOREVERFLOTUS is clearly into the ones that indicate she's living her life like it's golden (and iridescent).
Balenciaga sent brightly colored satin renditions of its over-the-knee "Knife" boots down runways a few seasons ago (and we have seen lower-cost options in popular fast-fashion stores since). However, done in shimmering, iridescent gold sequins (and on the legs of our life muse), the thigh-high stretch boots that could almost be mistaken for tights are now beyond iconic. Kudos to her stylist, Meredith Koop. We love the tonal pairing of the Aspen yellow shirtdress from Balenciaga's S'19 collection. Feel like forking over $3900? Get your pair HERE. Otherwise, see below for a few ways to channel THE Michelle LaVaughn Obama's style.
