Kate Betts explores Michelle Obama as an Everyday Icon of Style

Kate Betts visited Neiman Marcus Downtown today for a champagne reception to promote and sign copies of her latest publication, EVERYDAY ICON: Michelle Obama and the Power of Style.  I had the opportunity to grab a few minutes with Kate & dish about her latest book.

Betts muses, Whether Obama has "a friendly hand on the back of the Queen of England or bare arms in Congress. You can’t help but be amazed at the rules Michelle Obama has broken, and what rules she might break next.

She has transfixed us not just with her sense of style but with what seems like a new set of you-go-girl guidelines—a new etiquette based on brio, enthusiasm, and her oft-repeated and seemingly unassailable fashion principal 'Wear what you love.'"*

The lovely folks at Neiman Marcus were gracious enough to give me a copy of Kate's book to pass along to one lucky fashionista.
