The First Lady of American Fashion

When Michelle Obama took up residence in the White House four years ago, she became not only the first lady of the United States, but also the first lady of American fashion. Check out her style evolution.

Karl Lagerfeld is not a fan of Michelle Obama's birthday bangs.

The French designer told host Yann Barthes on Canal Plus last week that the FLOTUS' new 'do was "not a good idea."

After being shown before-and-after pictures of the first lady's hair, Lagerfeld said, "I don't understand why she changed her hair."

"I love Michelle Obama," he said before insisting that her new 'do makes her look "like a news anchor." (Un peu svre, non?! )

That said, our fashionista FLOTUS shouldn't feel too bad about Lagerfeld's cheveux critique. Pippa Middleton and Adele have also been targeted by the outspoken 79-year-old.

But at the end of the day, Barack Obama's opinion is the most important one. "I love her bangs," he said at an inaugural gala. "She looks good. She always looks good."

Agreed. Viva la bangs!
