Obama vs. Meester? Really?

Who'd have thought it'd be Obama to take on Meester in the lastest Fashion Police smackdown?
This coupling had me taking not just a second, but a third, a fourth... a tenth!

Leighton Meester paired her Marc Jacobs geo-print ankle grazing dress with strappy Louboutins whilst gracing the front row of of Jacobs Autumn 2011 collection back in February, so you'll all understand the shock I got when I saw Michelle Obama wearing the same dress on a Presidential trip to Ireland...

Meester's gentle curls forces her to scream 70's psychedelic and it was in this look that I lopped off the hem from my last seasons printed maxi so for me to see, yes a style icon in her own right but- someone of Obama's statue (which is often reflecting in her refine, elegant style) wearing this quirky, funky dress I did begin to question myself!

Michelle looks elegant and sophisicated and definitly demonstrates the ability of  the accessories or shoes in giving an outfit a complete 180 (so props for that) ... I just cannot fathom people suggesting that the Marc Jacobs dress is better worn with flats instead of wooden platform wedges!

Much love;
