A Michelle Obama 'Gush-a-Thon'?

The President Barack Obama is not the only Obama to make headlines this week.

Washington Post fashion editor Robin Givhan talks about First Lady Michelle Obama and the world reaction to her sense of fashion, and how her meeting with Queen Elizabeth II has become the talk of England.

Washington Post fashion writer Robin Givhan, celebrity hairstylist Anthony Dickey and historian Catherine Allgor discuss the unique fashion sense of the country's next leading lady, and whether some scrutiny of Michelle Obama is unfair.
