Ouch! Vivienne Westwood Says Michelle Obama's Style is "Dreadful"

She’s been heralded as one of the best-dressed First Ladies in White House history, but Michelle Obama has rubbed one fashionista the wrong way with her style selections.
In a new interview, Vivienne Westwood took aim at Mrs. Obama’s fashion sense when New York Times critic Eric Wilson brought up Michelle’s wardrobe.
Westwood began, “Don’t talk about her. It’s dreadful what she wears….I don’t want to talk about it. Really, I can’t. She’s a very nice looking lady, but it’s a nonstarter regarding clothes that suit her.”
“Jackie Kennedy was a different matter altogether. It just has to suit her and be something that makes a human being more glamorous. That's what fashion is there for. It's there to help, not just to make you look more conservative,” she added.
