Mikki Taylor has been a busy little bee, and now we know why. The former Essence cover coordinator has a very insightful book coming out that is guaranteed to satisfy the palettes of Michelle Obama fans everywhere. “Commander in Chic: Every Woman’s Guide to Managing Her Style Like a First Lady”, predictably focuses on the effortless style of President Obama’s leading lady, who manages to consistently look polished and elegant despite her hectic and demanding schedule.
Both women had their first encounter in 2006 when Taylor interviewed the future First Lady for an article that appeared in Essence, and then a couple of years later the two women met again in Chicago to discuss another potential cover story.
That period of mutual admiration and bonding inspired the former editor to follow the awesome journey Obama was embarking on as she embraced her new role and responsibilities.
Now we can read all about it and view 90 photos that provide a comprehensive visual style guide that will make any fashionista’s mouth water.
