Well, I’ve been looking for a way to write about Barack Obama, and now Donatella Versace gives me an in! After giving Hillary Clinton shit for wearing pants suits earlier this year, saying the first woman presidential candidate to be taken seriously should “treat femininity as an opportunity and not try to emulate masculinity in politics,” Donatella is now giving her ultimate seal of approval to Obama.

Calling the presidential hopeful “the man of the moment,” Donatella dedicated her Spring/Summer 09 collection to Obama. The line was previewed Saturday in Milan and consisted of lots of casual, easy-to-wear pieces including wide leg trousers and pastel hues.
