Michelle Obama Interviews Richard Sherman

In a new video supporting her ‘Let’s Move!’ campaign, Michelle Obama interviews Richard Sherman who along with the Seattle Seahawks sous-chef cooks up an example of a healthy meal for children in school. The best part of this video? Richard Sherman responding to Michelle Obama spoofing his very controversial post-game rant from last season. How can we forget?

He is just the best.

A Collection Part 33


Veronica told me just the other day that I was overdue for A Collection post. In looking through my archives, I see that it has only been TWO months. This is actually probably a new record for us. Like many “A Collection” posts, there is no theme. I wish I had something to say about how I’m feeling or why I chose the photographs that I did, but I choose them because at the time it is what is most pleasing to me!

Enjoy!

Full Circle

When Michelle Obama attended her first Inauguration Ball, she chose Jason Wu. And now for her second time, she chose Jason Wu yet again in a jaw-dropping red gown. That dress. Those bangs. GORGEOUS.

Jason Wu must be the happiest man alive right now.

Katie’s Favorites of 2012

Favorite Style Icon: Taylor Swift

T. Swift has seriously stepped her game in 2012. Yes, she’s still sticking to the neutral colored dresses – but hey! That’s okay. It works for her. Taylor Swift is really just doing all the right things when it comes to her style these days and it helps that there are a handful of fabulous designers throwing their pieces at her. It’s awesome. I, of course, am jealous.

Runner Up: Michelle Obama / Kate Middleton

The Obama Family: Then and Now

photo cred | Hello Magazine

It is hard to believe that the first term has already flown by. I don’t want to get too much into my political views here on Yow Yow, but I will say three words about the results: I was thrilled.

I am just glad to say that this time around I felt not only more informed, but more confident in my decisions and what exactly I was expressing my voice on.

But this post isn’t about this. This post is about the Obama ladies – Michelle, Malia and Sasha. These three women are becoming style icons. Seriously, I wish I looked that good and dressed that well at Malia’s age. I didn’t. Her outfit last night was something I absolutely needed to have in my closet. And also – I think we’ve all heard by now about how the fashion industry has publicly dismissed Ann Romney and pretty much only supported Michelle Obama during the campaigning season.

These two girls have grown up so much. I can’t wait to see how their style continues to evolve over the next four years and to see who will be designing Malia’s prom dress. Oh yeah. You know that’s coming.

2012 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards

Taylor Swift in Maria Lucia Hohan

The girl certainly knows what works. She generally is drawn towards similar gowns that are flowy and neutral colored for most award shows, but it always seems to work!

Jason Wu

If I were Jason Wu, I would feel an immense amount of pressure on my shoulders right now. Having that Michelle Obama status already? I can’t imagine. But I actually like many of these look.

I could see Michelle wearing the second dress.
