Fashion & Style News: Michelle Obama’s Favorite Designer Closes Shop

March 23, 2010
 Michelle Obama in a Mario Pinto sheath.

Designer Maria Pinto who designed a number of the First Lady Michelle Obama’s outfits well before she got to the White House has closed the doors of her Chicago boutique.

Citing tough economic times as the cause, Maria Pinto has filed for bankruptcy in addition to closing her stores doors. Pinto first garnered attention when she outfitted the first lady throughout the presidential campaign. Though Mrs. Obama continues to be one of her loyal clients, her patronage wasn’t enough to keep the designer’s doors open. We hope Ms. Pinto will bounce back, and maybe start her own ready-to-wear collection. Time will only tell. Good luck Maria.

Style Reads: Mrs. O and Rihanna Do Glamour

November 5, 2009
 Mrs. O is well, red. 

Michelle Obama is the latest is all about Glamour–magazine that is. President Obama’s lovely other half is featured on the November cover of the magazine for the Women of the Year issue. Pop star Rihanna who made blink-worthy headlines when she was assaulted by Chris Brown this year also made the cover cut.

Mrs. O who undoubtedly has been one of the most influential people of 2009, dishes on her life thus far as First Lady, why women should pay attention to the way a man treats his mother and how she still has a hard time saying that her husband is the President of the United States.
Miss Rihanna opens up on her ordeal with her former beau, domestic violence, the “Rihanna cut” and why its good to help other people.

Fashion & Style News: Michelle Obama’s Most Memorable First Lady Looks

November 3, 2009

Check out Mrs. O’s best looks as the First Lady of the United States. The CFB chose our own looks and truthfully, it’s hard to narrow it down because in my opinion, she has many. She is a trendsetter and go-getter, a woman defined by her character and not her wardrobe, yet she manages to influence women everywhere with her poised presence and intelligence.


Who could forget the way she stood by her man Barak as he stayed on his grind to become President of the United States. She admits the road to this path wasn’t always easy, but she managed to keep her head held high, support her family, and ultimately become the most admired woman in America. Never mind the haters who want to nitpick about who or what she wears. She can wear anything she wants  and wear it well. J. Crew, Narcisco Rodriguez, Tracy Reese, or Michael Kors; she looks good in it all.


Her genuine heart is clear when we see how Mr. President smiles admiringly at his lady. He holds her hand tightly when they walk, letting everyone know, ‘she is mine’. What a proud man he should be to have a women like Michelle. A woman with modest roots, straight from the south side of Chicago. She is the archtype for every girl who grew up in the inner city with struggle not far behind.


Michelle is the woman who represents for the women who make it happen every day. The women who never take no for an answer even when faced with adversity. Michelle Obama is far from ordinary, she is extraordinary. She epitomizes class, beauty, and elegance even in her casual best. She’s the true definition of a lady. I love you Michelle! The Chocolate Fashionistas of the World love you! Thanks for reminding the world what true lady looks like!
