Michelle Obama, as you know, is our First Lady and the first African American First Lady.

But once she became First Lady, she was not only an inspiration because of her intelligence or graduating from Harvard, or becoming lawyer, or for being a public servant to the people. She was also an inspiration because of her fashion sense.

Fashion Inspiration: Maya Angelou

Fashion inspiration can come from anyone, but the person I believe to really inspire fashion is Dr. Maya Angelou. She was one of the most renowned and influential voices of our time. She encouraged people and inspired them to be something more and, without realizing it, she also became a fashion icon. Because she was such a role model to young black women, they looked up to her in everything she did and what she wore. Dr. Angelou was a great poet, memoirist, novelist, educator, dramatist, producer, actress, historian, filmmaker, and civil rights activist. She also never conformed to social stereotypes when it came to clothes. She had a very classic and modern look all at the same time. She always looked so comfortable in whatever she was wearing. Her clothes truly expressed who she was, a classy woman.
