Michelle Obama and Mademoiselle C

First Lady requests Carine Roitfeld documentary

Michelle Obama has requested a copy of for a private White House screening.

The fashion documentary, which follows Carine Roitfeld as she launches her new magazine CR Fashion Book, features a number of front row stars, including Lara Stone, Kanye West and Sarah Jessica Parker.

Is it so surprising that the First Lady is seeking style tips from the much-admired Galllic icon? Over the years, Michelle has demonstrated that she is not afraid to be experimental and eclectic. From J.Crew to Thakoon, her particular brand of power dressing has played out in modern, digital prints, and neat and chic cuts. But what really endears her to the fashion world, is her willingness to mix established names with new and emerging designers.


Michelle’s cosy fashion DVD night in comes amid the US government’s ongoing shutdown.

Mademoiselle C is released on DVD from 28 October.
