I've spent the last four years ooh-ing and ah-ing over first lady Michelle Obama, that I've all-but-ignored our city's own first lady, Lisa Nutter, and her sense of style.
And for that I should be ashamed - especially since her looks are the closest thing to perfect I've ever seen. Sorry Mrs. Nutter.
In my defense, Philly's first lady prefers to fly under the fashion radar. But when she does get dressed out for a night on the town, she's usually in a colorful, form-fitting Nicole Miller dress.
"Lisa is a very confident, stylish woman who appreciates artistic talents," said Mary K. Dougherty owner of the Nicole Miller boutiques in The Bellevue and Manayunk. She pointed out the fact that Mrs. Nutter also integrates local designers into her wardrobe. "She wears the clothes well so well she effortlessly looks good and that makes me look good."
