Michelle Obama wore Narciso Rodriguez’s iris wool crepe dress while appearing on “The Late Show with David Letterman” on Thursday night. She and Letterman shared parenting tips and talked about the challenges of raising children. “They’re doing great. They’re growing up and it happened so fast,” said Obama, about her daughters Malia, 16 and Sasha, 13. “I have one driving. She’s out on the road.” Obama said that Malia has a curfew. “She just can’t roll around,” she said.
Rodriguez was clearly excited about Obama’s choice. “I always feel a sense of pride when the First Lady chooses to wear my designs. She is an extraordinary woman and an inspiration. I thought she looked fantastic last night on Letterman,” said Rodriguez on Friday.
Obama has worn Rodriguez’s clothing on several occasions, and one in particular stands out.
“On election night in 2008, Michelle Obama wore a red and black dress that I designed for my spring 2009 collection. I was honored that she chose to wear my design for one of the most memorable moments in history. Needless to say, it was also one of the highlights of my career,” he said.
