China’s first lady beats out Michelle Obama for best-dressed list, to cheers on the Chinese Web
When it comes to the love-hate, frenemy-like U.S.-China relationship, there's been no shortage of competition. You have cyberwars, currency wars, intellectual property wars and, most recently, the tug-of-war over a certain asylum-seeking fugitive leaker.
Now, add to all that a rivalry over who has the best-dressed first lady — a competition in which China was surprisingly anointed the winner this week by Vanity Fair.
For the second consecutive year, Michelle Obama did not make the cut of the magazine's list of "International Best-Dressed." But China's new first lady did. Peng Liyuan "sails onto the list," as Vanity Fair put it in a photo gallery highlighting Peng's eye for trendy-yet-stately attire.
