Fashion Friday: Michelle Obama and a Blue Dress With a Story

Siriano’s back story is one where he champions women of all shapes and sizes. Recently, he told VOGUE, “My mission was always, ‘Let’s support everybody. You never know who a great customer is going to be.’ . . . Growing up, my mom was a size 16 to 18, so it was just normal to dress women of all sizes.” With that sensitivity under his belt, Siriano responded to the Saturday Night Live six-foot-tall star Leslie Jones, who took to Twitter to lament that no designers wanted to dress her for her Ghostbusters premiere. To the rescue, Siriano created a stunning red gown for her seen below.

Yep! #prettywoman ❤️

    I knew that Michelle favored the simple dress but did not realize that very often their was a back story to the dress. I wish I had know that eight years ago. I would have paid more attention.
