  3. So do we – which is why, as well as picking our highlights from the both the Michael Kors mainline and Michael Michael Kors collections, we couldn’t resist dressing up and hitting the street for an impromptu photo shoot. You know, in the name of serious, investigative journalism.Late last night, (about 6am in the UK) Barack Obama was officially elected for a second term in the 2012 US Presidential Election. michael kors outlet At his victory speech in Chicago, President Obama appeared on stage with his family - First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia.Michelle looked radiant in her Michael Kors brocade dress in deep plum with a tailored black shrug jacket and Alexis Bittar brooch. Her daughters Sasha and Malia also attracted plaudits for their ensembles http://www.michaelkorspremiumoutlets.com – iridescent full skirts in bright colours with neon accessories and dark tops.
    He also took his first stab at knitwear, offering up navy sweater dresses and ladylike cardigans that were threaded with vintage-style lurex roses and teamed with lightweight, flared trousers (without doubt the essential trouser shape of the season). And there were even some michael kors uk coats too, draped woolen numbers with the same mismatched sleeves and uneven hems.All in all it was grown-up and lovely, and showed that Van der Ham's happy to move outside of his comfort zoneMichael Jackson wasn’t just the King of Pop, but an international style icon. And over the past 30 years his fashion statements have michael kors deals created as many headlines as his hit records. This season fashion has certainly embraced Michael Jackson’s favourite combination of skinny trouser and embellished military or biker jacket - it ruled the Balmain catwalk and is all over the high street. So, now is the perfect fashion moment to rock the Jacko look. Make a statement in michael kors black friday ads Maje’s deep red, suede biker, teamed with a simple white vest, skinny black jeans, a pair of killer studded heels and of course – a fedora titled just so – in memory of Michael.Halle Berry is adding her star clout to Michael Kors’ Watch Hunger Stop campaign.
    For spring Kors gave us an African adventure filled michael kors black friday with safari-inspired kaftans, linen cargo jackets and silk anoraks. It was the detail that was the talking point though. Haircalf patchwork shifts used an assortment of animal print, cashmere and linen was hand-dyed to give a fired earth colour, and sweaters were pieced together using squares of differently woven effects.The stand-out pieces were the boxy leopard michael kors cyber monday deals 2015 print t-shirt and shorts and the hand-painted feathered shifts. After 30 years still a force to be reckoned with: steely and indestructible, a bit like the lady with the broken leg.There’s nothing quite like seeing a collection strut down the runway on the likes of Cara Delevingne and Karlie Kloss, then getting your hands on the michael kors outlet online sale pieces yourself.
    The American institution that is Michael Kors continues to evoke and inspire the American ideal.
