White House Style Showdown: Jackie O vs. Michelle O (Which First Lady Did It Better?)

 

With the final 2012 Presidential debate airing last night, the Obamas are reaching the end of their first term in office. Over these four years we've seen First Lady Michelle Obama don an array of designers, patterns and colors. During her tenure as FLOTUS she has proven herself as fashion forward, making it popular for women in politics to show off a little arm. Michelle O is even one of the first women to hold the office to garner that much attention on her clothing choices since Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, who perfected the pillbox hat and wide frame glasses. But which first lady had better style? We'll let you be the judge in this White House style show down: Jackie O vs. Michelle O.

    Jackie most def did the damn thang! She is the epitome of class and beauty. She is a true fashion icon and effortless poise and grace will forever walk the halls of the house.

    jackie…why even put anyone up against her?

  • Kate miller

    Jackie O was a moronic woman who didn’t know her man was doing 47 girls at the same time. Puleeze, the classier, and better married couple are the obama’s. Jackie was stupid as hell, as you heard her talk. Her iq was 60

    • Kate miller

      stupid is not class, sorry jackie, MO wins.

    • Aly

      well this article is talking in terms of fashion style..not her personal life.

    • LatinaSabrosa

      Jackeline Kennedy was NOT stupid at all! she was a well educated woman, spoke french and english, supported the African American movement, had great fashion and even created a daycare in the white house with all kids welcomed. She was a beautiful woman. She was unable to leave her husband for personal reasons.

        She also spoke Spanish well!! She was never a moron and only those that ARE morons would call her one! She was Class with a capital “C” all through her life; she looked it and she lived it. Your Obamas could never match her and JFK in any way, EVER!

    • LatinaSabrosa

      So before you call someone stupid you should do your research on them and really find out why they did what they did. You are no one to judge anyone.

  • Freedom

    Jackie and Michelle styles are both fashionable they both look great!

  • Aly

    they both can dress they asses off!!!! but jackie was the original fly flotus lol

  • LatinaSabrosa

    JackiO reminds me of my mother! I think the first lady has a lot of similar looks, so with that being said JackiO is the winner

    Jackie O’s style is timeless and is still trendy

  • keekee1kool1

    Michelle looks great for this day and age and Jackie O looked great for her time as FLOTUS… so you have to give it to them both. Just flawless role model woemen!!!

    Times have changed so very much since the Kennedy era. This is not the 21st century, so of course fashion has also evolved.The styles of the two first ladies are very similar, but also very different. No one wears gloves and very few wear hats today. It is virtually impossible to compare the two, although there are similarities.

  • mJohn

    They will both – Always be 10 in my book

    No one will ever be able to even come close to Jackie O., she was the epitome of class and style, in every way

  • Cerph

    How can one even place them on the same page?
