Michelle Obama spent her Sunday taking in a Nascar race in Miami.
The world of car racing could use some good publicity after the tragic death of racer Dan Wheldon in Las Vegas last month, but yesterday’s crowd wasn’t thrilled to see the First Lady take the podium. Instead, they booed her and Jill Biden when the two took time to promote Joining Forces, a program bent on training and hiring veterans.
They may have booed even louder if they’d known Obama was wearing Margiela. We’re guessing that’s the closest a Margiela product has ever gotten to a racetrack. Not surprisingly, the unexpected choice has made the fashion crowd love the First Lady even more.
