Robin Givhan

Robin Givhan was the first person to win the Pulitzer Prize in criticism by writing about fashion. She analyzes the fashion choices of the most influential women and criticized First Lady Michelle Obama for wearing shorts by writing, "Avoiding the appearance of queenly behavior is politically wise. But it does American culture no favors if a first lady tries so hard to be average that she winds up looking common."
