It’s a fair statement to say that Michelle Obama is a bonafide fashion icon. We love seeing her decked out in designer duds like Jason Wu (I mean, who can forget this stunner?) and effortlessly gracing the covers of top fashion magazines a la Vogue. Yet, it’s her relatable persona and accessible fashion choices that have set her apart and retained the admiration of the public. Mikki Taylor, Essence‘s former beauty director and current Editor-at-Large, has taken The First Lady as her muse and authored Commander in Chic: Every Woman’s Guide to Managing Her Style Like a First Lady.
Mikki Taylor is a black fashion icon — who has often shined behind the scenes. A style trailblazer who made her mark initially as an editor for Essence Magazine, Taylor has branched out into books, and is soon to release a stellar style tome called Commander in Chic. In a delicious play on words that describes a woman in charge of style while in the national spotlight, Commander in Chic will focus on the amazing aura of sophistication surrounding First Lady Michelle Obama — mixed with Mikki’s delightful expertise and personal brand of beauty leadership.
