Michelle Obama hosted the White House’s first Fashion education workshop, that she thought up with Anna Wintour last year while re-opening the Costume Institute.  Providing hands on workshops for fashion students while mingling with designers such as Prabal Gurung, Zac Posen, Bibhu Mohapatra and Naeem Khan, and Lucky Editor Eva Chen.  FLOTUS was on trend with her beach waves hair and a navy sleeveless racerback dress that was designed by one of the FIT students – how cool is that?!?!  Only question reversecommuter has is where was Ralph Lauren and Anna Wintour?!?

Slap on your favorite Louboutins, pour the champs and toast the weekend!

Pause here for an Uber-cool reversecommuter moment – when I met KirnaZabete (Beth Puccini and Sarah Easely), I told them the goal of the blog was to get one woman in the ‘burbs out of yoga pants every single day – they LOVED it, and told me it was the same reason behind what they did.   Um….shivers!!!!!!!!
