Michelle Obama Begins
Fashion Trend-setting

Just like a major celebrity at an awards show, everyone was talking about what Michelle Obama was wearing during her keynote speech at the DNC.

Obama’s large brooch came straight from her jewelry box and was reminiscent of her husband Barack's rising sun campaign logo. By wearing the brooch over her heart, it was interpreted by some as symbolizing her inspiring speech came “straight from the heart.”

“Michelle knows how to wear a brooch that makes a statement without overdoing it,” says jewelry and style expert Michael O’Connor. “She understands that you can completely and elegantly change the look of a simple dress by adding a significant piece of jewelry.”
