As was Republican-disliking designer Diane von Fürstenberg:

"Your vulnerabilities and your perceived weaknesses… Find a way to make them your strengths. – DVF with @FLOTUS @ReachHigher #FashionEdu

Did the president show up at FLOTUS’ fashion forum to remind Wintour or von Fürstenberg that “you didn’t design that”? Asking for a friend.

Representatives from Spanx were there as well:

Did the @WhiteHouse roll out a SPANX red carpet just for us? 😉 #fashionedu pic.twitter.com/6Joa5OI7Dp

That earned a special FLOTUS shout-out:

RT @Emilylgoodin: FLOTUS, at WH fashion workshop, admits to wearing Spanx. "We all wear them — with pride."

A brief trip back to the real world:
