When you're FLOTUS, the world is watching you almost as much as your husband. Like many first ladies before her, Mrs. Obama's wardrobe is under just as much scrutiny as her political ties. Her wardrobe choices may not always be popular (take, for example, her choice of a decorated white dress during an inaugural ball, where she was compared to a wedding cake by some critics). However, Mrs. Obama will often shun popular opinion and opt for brave color schemes, prints and silhouettes. Women love her simply because she's following her own sense of style. It's not that the first lady doesn't care what the public thinks -- she simply knows that not everything she wears will make everyone happy. But as long as she's pleased with her own look, she's won the fashion battle.
