There is no age or economic class cap on being pressed. That’s good to know.
Speaking at a Mexico City fashion gala last week, Oscar de la Renta told the press that he isn’t at all bothered that Michelle Obama has not selected him as a clothier because for him it’s all about dressing the average woman.
The designer dissed the FLOTUS in 2009 for wearing a cardigan during her first visit with Queen Elizabeth II. Your homegirl is petty is like shit.

Oscar de la Renta has been popular with many past first ladies, including Betty Ford, Nancy Reagan, 91, Laura Bush, 66, and Hillary Clinton, 65. However, of our current first lady, he states, “It is a relation that began poorly and I think it will end the same way.” Looks like Michelle is on the outs in his book!
Though de la Renta does seem a bit bitter about their lack of business relations, he promises that he is not worried about dressing Michelle, because nowadays, it’s up to ordinary women too set the trends as opposed to celebrities. He explains, “an anonymous woman on the street is the woman who influences fashion today, not a movie star or a first lady.”
