S.I.S. Grace Celebrates International Women's Day

Today marks the centennial of International Women's Day, a day that celebrates the economic, political, and social accomplishments of women globally.

As a list-group activity participant, I redressed a So In Style doll to represent an accomplished woman from my country. I chose to honor the first African American First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama. 

So In Style Grace shadows First Lady Michelle Obama in a reinterpretation of the gold strapless dress and shawl worn by the First Lady during her first White House State Dinner on November 24, 2009. Indian Prime Minister,  Manmohan Singh and his wife, Mrs. Gursharan Kaur, were the guests of honor.  First Lady Obama's glittery gold, strapless dress was designed by Indian-born Naeem Khan and was made in India.  Her accessories included beautiful drop earrings and several bangle bracelets. 

So In Style Grace as First Lady Michelle Obama

Grace also wears a glittery gold dress with halter neckline and accessories "similar" to those worn by First Lady Obama.  Grace's dress, however, was designed by someone at Mattel and made in China.  Her shawl is borrowed from the Mixis Indian Outfit, also made in China.
