Vivienne Westwood, Michelle ObamaIn a Q&A with the New York Times, iconic fashion designer Vivienne Westwood said that she had such disdain for First Lady Michelle Obama‘s fashion sense that she couldn’t even bear to talk about her.

After the 71-year old British style legend said that Kate Middleton (wife of England’s Prince William) was setting a bad example by having the same outfit in different colors and should strive to buy less clothes, it was jokingly suggested that she must really like Obama, then, who is not only adored for her fashion sense here in the states, but the confidence she exudes when recycling outfits or rearranging separates. The FLOTUS is also known for combining high end clothes and value items, so clearly Westwood would respect that, no?

No.

.

Q. You must love our first lady, who is famous for recycling her clothes.

A. Don’t talk about her. It’s dreadful what she wears.

Q. What?
A. I don’t want to talk about it. Really, I can’t. She’s a very nice looking lady, but it’s a nonstarter regarding clothes that suit her. Jackie Kennedy was a different matter altogether. It just has to suit her and be something that makes a human being more glamorous. That’s what fashion is there for. It’s there to help, not just to make you look more conservative.

The first lady is probably not that concerned with Westwood’s criticism. In the February 2009 Vogue, she shared her fashion philosophy:

“First and foremost, I wear what I love. That’s what women have to focus on: what makes them happy and what makes them feel comfortable and beautiful. If I can have any impact, I want women to feel good about themselves and have fun with fashion.”

Westwood isn’t the first fashion legend to recently weigh in on the FLOTUS’ style.In an interview for France’s Canal Plus,Karl Lagerfeld said that he “adored” the First Lady, but: “I don’t understand the change of hair … Frankly, the fringe was a bad idea. It’s not good.” He further stated that there was nothing presidential about her new fringe, and said it made her look like a news anchor.
