Currently Channeling: Michelle Obama Pearl Necklaces

Earlier this week I posted photos of Mrs. O on the scene at the G20 Summit.  Of course the 1st lady wouldn’t be seen across the pond without her faithful double-strand pearls.  Channeling the ever-classic Jackie O, Michelle has made the multi-strand pearl necklace the centerpiece of her jewelry collection.  From the first days of her campaigning, Michelle was compared to the other Mrs. O on several levels from their similarities with style, class, grace, and overall magnetism.

Inspired by Michelle Obama’s classic look, I broke out my own multi-strand pearl necklace this week.  Mine’s a triple-strand because you know as Roberto Cavalli always says, “more is more!”  Well in this case I don’t think he’d ever use that saying in reference pearls.  He is more of a leopard print and gold chains kind of guy.

Speaking of More is More, Michelle Obama captured the very essence of the Animal Print King’s mantra when she hit a night on the town for her first black tie event at the White House.   Michelle broke out in a dramatic multi-strand (faux) pearl and crystal necklace by Tom Binns at the Governor’s Ball this past February.  Tom Binn’s interlaced pearl and diamante necklaces is appropriately named “Pearls in Pearl.”
