The Duchess and Shelley O

In the official portrait of Michelle Obama, the first lady wears a sleeveless dress from Michael Kors' Spring 2009 collection. It's a black version of the blue dress in double-bonded crepe jersey that was shown in the collection.

This is the first time she's worn a dress by The Duchess and we have to say, she should wear him more often. She looks spectacular.

Shake that Bootie and TAG!

Tagged by Fellow Fashionista Closeup to share 6 Random Things About CC:
1) I can still do a cartwheel back-walkover even though I quit gymnastics 20 years ago.
2) Eating Trader Joe’s almond butter straight out of the jar is a semi-daily activity for me. Banana optional.
3) Having super long luxurious locks is essential for me; most of my nightmares involve someone cutting my hair… Photo at right via Tush Magazine.
4) My favorite “going out” outfit lately is a La Petite Salope bustier and skinny jeans (left, Silence & Noise; right, J Brand).
5) I just adore fashion illustration. At right, a Fifi Flowers original adapted from Vogue – delightful!
6) I am totally obsessed with booties… Brace yourselves for some major shoe porn, darlings!

Hedda Lettuce and Mr. Gunn

Tim Gunn and Hedda Lettuce attend the 21st annual Bailey House auction and party at Roseland Ballroom in New York City.

This is what Hedda Lettuce wrote on her site about running into Tim Gunn:

"I had the pleasure of running into Mr. Gunn and I found out he terribly dislikes being called Mr. Gunn. You see, when I meet a celebrity, I never use their first name; I think it’s rude. I always say: “Hello Miss. Ciccone” or “how do you do Miss Knowles.” Well, I did the same thing with Tim. “Hello Mr. Gunn.” At which point he said to me, “Would you please call me Tim, you make me sound like my father.” “I am so sorry Tim,” I earnestly replied. “I did not mean to offend you. I did it as a matter of respect.” Which stopped him dead in his tracks and this little crooked smile broke out upon his face. A smile that said, “Yes you are right. I do deserve respect.” He than said to me, “Why, thank you.” And went off on his way. He never did apologize for calling me mean when I was on Project Runway but I will forgive him for his poor manners."
