Michelle Obama wears Rachel Roy at State Of The Union Address . . . . And it's not to please Oscar de la Renta

While President Obama addressed America with his State of the Union Address last night, fashionistas were googling and twitting to find out which designer Michelle Obama was wearing. A silver gray sheath dress donned with tasteful lucite bracelet bangles was a perfect choice for the fashionable Mrs. O, with its' somber color tone as she sat with the family of Christina Taylor Green who was killed in the Tuscon, Arizona shooting. The First Lady was criticized by Oscar De La Renta for her Alexander McQueen gown she recently wore to the State Dinner of visiting Chinese President Hu Jintao. His position is that Michelle Obama should have worn an American designer instead of promoting European/UK designers.

It is therefore no surprise, that all eyes were on her tonite, to see what designer she chose to wear, which was not revealed until after the Presidents' speech via @AP_fashion & @rachel_roy on twitter. Though Oscar de la Renta's critique is, the First Lady wear an American designer for that night, should it not have been an Asian designer instead? The reason being that since Chinese President Hu Jintao visit is to promote growth and US relations, the First Lady should have worn an Asian designer, if Mr. de la Renta wants to make a point. It makes no sense for his argument because Michelle Obama really doesn't have a political motive for her fashion choices. Her choice tonite is not a political one either because Rachel Roy is an American designer. She has worn Roy's clothes before to other public events like a State Visit with her husband to India last year.

We love you Mrs. O for being a 'Tru Fashionista Now' because of your love for fashion and your choices of not following in the blueprint of other First Ladies like the great Jackie O. Being a Tru Fashionista Now, is someone who has their own interpretation and sense of style; color, silhouettes, designer and creativity and you have certainly made your mark in the fashion world with youe choices. Are you a true fashionista now?

The future of fashion with The Barney Cheng Collection at Hong Kong Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2011

The Barney Cheng Collection was a sight of things to come in world of fashion as Hong Kong Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2011 continued. The fabric palette of metallic greys, silver and off-white was enough to set the tone of the collection that evoked a sense futurism. Yarn embroidered cocktail skirts and ruffled skirts created the texture without leaving each garment with a feel of the typical minimalist feel that we've seen over and over from designers who have approached this theme. Instead the embroidery, big belts and waistbands, yarns and lengthy use of fabric adds a new approach to this exciting theme. The Barney Cheng Collection brings luxury, high couture and a new sense of style of what to expect for Fall/Winter 2011 and we love it. Check out @gv-miao for more pictures on Barney Cheng collection.

First Lady Michelle Obama continues to make fashion history today with her second ensemble during Chinese President Hu Jintao's visit with an Alexander McQueen gown at this evening's state dinner.

Tiffany must-have tote handbag for Spring 2011

We love Tiffany's tote handbag that is becoming a staple in addition to their already classic sterling jewelry. The totes are reversible made from suede with a palladium plated solid brass hardware. We think this will become a classic fashion staple to make you a Tru Fashionista and we love it.

True Fashionista picks at the 2011 Golden Globes

Halle Berry explodes in Nina Ricci to become our True Fashionista at the 2011 Golden Globes. We absolutely love the risk of the corset lingerie inspired gown and train. Who cares about fluffy, glitter and satin gowns?We love that you have a style of your own and the paparazzi mob scene that took place when you made your entrance on the red carpet. With a body like that you are indeed a Tru Fashionista goddess.
Clair Danes is stylishly beautiful in Calvin Klein. We love the risk of the pink color which turned out to be the right one with fashionistas such as Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore following the lead. The minimalist and classic silhouette of this gown is flawless and timeless. You are a True Fashionista for your color choice and for making it work.
Angelina Jolie is stunning in Atelier Versace. Her choice of color makes her a True Fashionista and we're not forgetting her confidence for wearing padded shoulders adding to her iconic beauty. You know you are a True Fashionista when you can do know wrong regardless of the envious green and when you have other fashionistas like Catherine Zeta Jones rocking the same color.
Natalie Portman looks stunning in Viktor & Rolf. Incorporating the fit of the gown with her pregnancy seemed effortless to pull off her fashionista style. The choice for the pink color is a good risk for the night because there were other pink fashionistas flaunting it too. You are a Tru Fashionista.
Eva Longoria rocks in Zac Posen. We love her for sticking to tradition with the mermaid dress for a red carpet with a dress that is a perfect fit. The pin on the waist band is so 'old Hollywood' and we love that in you because that one touch of careful accessory transforms you into a Tru Fashionista
