While Michelle Obama may have gotten all the style love during Obama’s time in office, it appears the former President was the real style sleuth.
At Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference on Tuesday, Michelle revealed that her husband Barack Obama actually wore the same suit for eight years and no one said anything.
“That’s the unfair thing,” Michelle said. “No matter what we do, he puts on that same tux.” The former First Lady was making a point about how women are unfairly treated when it comes to fashion. “Now, people take pictures of the shoes I wear, the bracelets, the necklace – they didn’t comment that for eight years, he wore that same tux, same shoes,” she dished.
Not only did Barack get away with it, he was proud of it too. “He was like, ‘Mm! I’m ready. I’m ready in 10 minutes. Mmm, how long did it take you?'” she revealed.
One of the couple’s infamous fashion moments was in 2015 when they were waiting for the Chinese President Xi Jinping and his wife Peng Liyuan. While waiting, the First Lady adjusted the President’s tie and the moment went viral. According to Michelle, she was just keeping her husband in check.
“So we’re standing there, waiting for the cars to roll in, and I was bored, so I sort of thought, ‘Let me make sure my husband looks good,'” she explained. And did she ever!
