|Sophie Theallet and one of her dresses from Spring 2010|
I first heard of Sophie Theallet when First Lady Michelle Obama wore one of her dresses here to a ceremony celebrating the memorial bust of Sojourner Truth back in 2009. Also, when she debuted a collection for The Gap in June 2010. She is a french born designer from the South of France. Her signature is "bohemian luxe seen through the eyes of a sophisticated couturier."

Her pieces are so feminine and fresh suited for many shapes and sizes. Her very pricey ready-to-wear (RTW) pieces can be found in Barneys New York and in department stores in Paris and London. If you want the Sophie Theallet look on a budget, check out Anthropolgie or Zara.
Here are some photos of her Spring 2010 collection...
And I'm off and running...
