Mrs. Obama's expanding influence makes us ask the question. Find out why women are flocking to stores to buy her fashion choices.
Everything she touches seems to turn to gold. First Lady Michelle Obama’s London fashion choices have women flying online and in stores to get her J. Crew pieces, giving the American company a much-appreciated increase in sales, according to Barrons.com. The bedazzled cardigan she wore April 1 has a waiting list of more than 200 people, as the First Lady’s mix of affordable and high end fashion make getting her look much more attainable. J. Crew’s stock continues to rise and saw a 10% jump when First daughters Malia and Sasha wore coats from the store during President Obama’s inauguration.—CJ
