White House Series: Michelle Obama ~ Color Analysis


Isn't she lovely? Look at that gorgeous skin!

Michelle Obama is a Vivid Rich Autumn. If you have looked at the celebrity page, you know that in the 12-season system, I analyzed her as a deep autumn. But in Color Alliance, her coloring makes her vivid and rich.

And here is her beautiful color palette...



When I say that that is her color palette, I mean that I ordered it and had it specially made just for her as a match for her coloring. And, of course, if she wants it, I'd be happy to send it to her free of charge! ;)

Next week, we'll look at President Barack Obama's beautiful coloring and palette, and in the weeks ahead, look at planning campaign wardrobes for them both.

I am linking up today with Nina from Momma Go Round for Real Momma, Real Style, if she does it this week, with Jill at Glamamom for this week's Monday Mingle and to Not Dead, Yet Style for Visible Monday. On Wednesday, I will link up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday, and to Melaina at Transatlantic Blonde for What I Wore Wednesday.

    1. Thanks, Tami! I do, too, although I hear that she is actually more dramatic and the classic style is a White House adaptation.

    1. I'd have to formally analyze you to know for sure, but many women of color will be autumns or springs. My color analysis quiz (free) might help you narrow it down. Thanks for coming to say hello! Good to see you here.

  6. She always looks so radiant and glowing. I think being First Lady must be so hard, but she handles it with such grace.

  7. She's gorgeous, and I can see how she might have to tone her style down for the White House, as you alluded to!

    I'd love to consult with you r.e. letting my hair go gray when it's not necessarily the "right" color for my yellow-ish complexion. Any thoughts?

    1. Hi Jean! Well, what tends to happen as we age is that our coloring shifts in two ways. Our hair begins to go gray, and our skin and eyes become less color-intense. If it doesn't all happen at precisely the same time, there can be periods of time when our coloring seems out of balance.

      You can respond to that in a couple of ways. You can color your hair and then your seasonal identity never changes, though it may still soften a bit. Or you can shift into a cooler but blended season, so you still honor the warmth in your coloring.

      Best bet is to identify what your season is, what the season is likely to be that you will soften into, and what that palette looks like. Decide what you think suits you best and if going gray gracefully is still the priority, begin to experiment with the cooler season's colors and see what you think.

      Jean, I'm probably going to turn this into a blog post and add some more info, but I schedule ahead, so it might not show up until September. :)
