Vivienne Westwood Calls FLOTUS Style "Dreadful"
Black Enterprise Magazine July/August 2018 Issue

British designer Vivienne Westwood, 71, took jabs at First Lady Michelle Obama during an interview with The New York Times about her new “Punk: Chaos to Couture” exhibition at the New York Metropolitan Museum.

The designer, who recently voiced her not-so-nice opinion on Dutchess Kate Middleton, was frank with the New York Times.

The New York Times: You must love our first lady, who is famous for recycling her clothes?

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

The New York Times: What?

Westwood: 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.
