What makes Michelle Obama's fashion choices so wildly popular? They're wearable, yes, but more importantly, they're exciting. Case in point: the Ultra-Violet Neon Plasteramic Toywatch she's been sporting in recent days.

The Michelle formula of style icon dressing has been studied since her inauguration as First Lady because she's mixed the practical (J.
