Whether in luxurious ball gowns or chic cut-off cardigans, we love First Lady Michelle Obama’s style and now the source behind her fashion fierce has been revealed. Meredith Koop, a 29-year-old Vanderbilt graduate, was recently hired as the First Lady’s stylist in place of Chicago retailer Ikram Goldman, according to People.com.
Koop, a protege of Goldman’s, began assisting the First Lady in the White House before taking on the job full time. Koop is officially a “personal aide to the First Lady and a member of the White House Residence staff,” according to a White House spokesperson.
Although her job requires more than fashion-savvy, when it comes to clothes, Koop’s responsibilities include “advising the first lady on her wardrobe and acting on her behalf in arranging for purchases, including considering the best offered price, and buying on discount if discounts are available,” the White House told ABC news in an email. We definitely think the new gig sounds like fun!
