The fashionable First Lady has never worn a look from the designer, and now he’s being very vocal, saying he doesn’t find Mrs. Obama influential when it comes to fashion.

Michelle Obama, 48, is admired worldwide for her fantastic sense of style. She consistently wins a spot on our best dressed lists, but there is one designer in particular who is not too keen on her fashion sense. Designer Oscar de la Renta, 80, is no stranger to dressing First Families, but Michelle has yet to be included in his work. The designer is clearly not thrilled!

More On The Oscar de la Renta Michelle Obama Diss:

Oscar de la Renta has been popular with many past first ladies, including Betty Ford, Nancy Reagan, 91, Laura Bush, 66, and Hillary Clinton, 65. However, of our current first lady, he states, “It is a relation that began poorly and I think it will end the same way.” Looks like Michelle is on the outs in his book!

Though de la Renta does seem a bit bitter about their lack of business relations, he promises that he is not worried about dressing Michelle, because nowadays, it’s up to ordinary women too set the trends as opposed to celebrities. He explains, “an anonymous woman on the street is the woman who influences fashion today, not a movie star or a first lady.”

Despite this justification, de la Renta was one of very few to make a direct attack in dissing the cardigan that Michelle wore to meet Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh at Buckingham Palace in 2009 — it looks like this fashion feud has been years in the making! Perhaps if Mrs. Obama changes her ways and decides to sport a de la Renta label, the designer will have a change of heart.

Do YOU think Oscar de la Renta was out of line in criticizing the First Lady? Comment and VOTE!

Well maybe he hasn’t designed anything she could wear because she doesn’t have the body for high fashion nor is she sophisticated enough, he doesn’t know how to dress apes😀😀

Mrs Obama has never asked to be considered or crowned a style icon. She wears what she likes and has constantly responded to criticism by urging other women to embrace their own preferences. Live and let live!

It’s been 5 years and Oscar de la Renta is still whining. For someone who claims not to care if Mrs Obama wears his clothes, Oscar seems completely preoccupied with Mrs Obama.

Mrs Obama on the other hand refuses to get sucked into this petty, silly crap. She keeps living her wonderful life completely oblivious to all the ridiculous pettiness and hate.

Mrs Obama is such a lovely, gracious and amazing woman and I love and admire her so!

Seems that Oscar is a little jealous. Mrs. Obama ‘s style is to modern for his. Triditions have to broken sometimes. So he can stop being mean because she chose someone else. His rants need to end.Show some respect for her choices.

Not surprised! Michelle is choosing more Asian designers and American company brands to wear. It’s a new generation of fashionista’s and Michelle is leading the way!
