Michelle Obama

First Lady Michelle Obama caused a fashion stir on her first official trip abroad, with some calling her a new American fashion icon while others criticized some of her choice of clothing.

But Mandi Norwood, author of the upcoming book “Michelle Style: Celebrating the First Lady of Fashion,” thinks that overall the first lady did a very good job choosing outfits for the trip.

“I would definitely say she scored an A, perhaps even an A+,” she said. “She was trying to combine propriety with personal style. She’s working within the boundaries of unwritten rules here. So I think she did a great job.”

One outfit that Norwood loved was the cardigan and mint green skirt from affordable American brand J. Crew. In this, she said, the first lady outshone U.K. Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s wife, Sarah Brown.

Frankly, she’s just dazzling and shimmering. … She’s modern and fresh and classic and fun,” she said. “And poor old Sarah looks like she just stepped out of ‘Nanny 911.’”
