Michelle Obama believes her fashion choices are “very practical”.
The US first lady – who posed for the cover of US Vogue when her husband Barack became President – admits she always has to “love” what she wears, but must consider the physical implications of whatever outfit she is wearing.
She said: “I have to wear what I love. I have to feel good in it. My day-to-day wardrobe choices are very practical. I’m like, ‘What’s the temperature? Am I going to be sitting in the grass? Will I be playing with kids? Can I sit on the floor?’ ”
The 47-year-old philanthropist also reveals she likes to think little about her clothes once she has them on.
She said: “If I’m comfortable in what I have on, that’s second nature, and then all my attention can go on the people in the room that I’m with at the time, and I don’t have to worry whether something is riding up or whether my feet hurt. I don’t want to waste anxiety on something as limited as clothes.”
