Versace goes pastel for Obama



Michelle Obama and her black and white daytime TV dress are sooo last week. Hubby Barack is getting the fashionista love now.

Donatella2Saturday in Milan, Donatella Versace dedicated her Spring-Summer 2009 men's collection to the presidential hopeful, telling reporters she had designed the line for "a relaxed man who doesn't need to flex muscles to show he has power." She called Obama "the man of the moment."

Personally, I'm a little freaked out by the powerful largess of Donatella's lips. TOO MUCH collagen. That aside, having a fashion collection dedicated in your honor, even if it's by an Italian designer who can't cast a vote in the American presidential election, is pretty cool. Obama_5

I'm a fan of Mr. Obama's campaign clothing style. But Donatella, the ultimate diva, offered some fashion tips for the trail during an after-show dinner party in the garden of her private palazzo in downtown Milan (does that sound fabulous or what?)

"I would get rid of the tie and jazz up the shirt," she said, according to the Associated Press.  

Versace_5The AP reports that there were no ties in Donatella's latest show. Under jackets, she opted for shirts with rolled up sleeves or a silk T-shirt. I'm on board with her pastel palette, but I'll die laughing if my hubbie shows up in anything silk.
