The Cruelest April Fool’s Joke! Mrs.O Will Not Have a J.Crew Line

Today I had 3 different people send me news alerts at work saying, “look this is amazing!”  Only a couple min later to follow it up with, “never mind its an April’s Fool Joke.”   Well this was certainly the cruelest of all!  It was posted on one of my favorite anti-counterfeit blogs, Counterfeit Chic:

Mrs. O has now decided to stop fighting the public fascination with the First Family and instead channel that consumer behavior for the public good.  The result will be hundreds of official Obama products, including many that take advantage of Michelle’s status as a global fashion icon.  Fans of her style will be able to buy everything from a book of paper dolls tentatively entitled, Michelle Obama: The First Hundred Outfits, to reproductions of her most popular ensembles under her own “Right to Bare Arms” label, manufactured in cooperation with J.Crew.  (No unauthorized knockoffs, though — Counterfeit Chic is pleased to learn that the First Lady is currently negotiating with Narciso Rodriguez, Maria Cornejo, Isabel Toledo, and Jason Wu, among others, to pay licensing fees for their original designs.)

A J.Crew collboration with Mrs. O! Ugh too good to be true.  Speaking of which, Mrs. O apparently made a big splash in the UK today at the G20 summit.  Check out her essemble thus far on the Obama’s first trip abroad.  This is her coming out party, and needless to say Mrs. O did it in style.  I love that Michelle Obama is staying economically-minded with her choice in J.Crew.  Its no surprise that J.Crew’s crystal constellation cardigan is already sold out.  But you can still get the dazling-dots pencil skirt!

Michelle Obama rocks price tag friendly J.Crew.  You can get the Michelle O look too!
