Designers are praising president-elect Barack Obama's (pictured) effortless style. And anyone with a sketchbook and a sewing machine is salivating at the thought of getting to dress him. [The Cut] via [WWD]

The Daily Beast asked 9 former Project Runway designers to design Michelle Obama's inaugural dress.
The catch? The only materials they could use were Laura Bush’s 2005 Inaugural Ball dress; an American flag; burlap potato sacks; and $10 worth of trims of their choice. Leanne's is, without a doubt, the best, and we are hardly surprised. [The Daily Beast]

Ryan McGinley is modeling in the new Marc Spring 09 ads. Only worth reporting given that in 2003 he told The Advocate he wasn't interested in fashion photography. His track record proves otherwise, which is fine by us. We won't judge his genius. [Fashionista]

Super cutie Brad Goreski gives some tidbits to Paper magazine. Gabbing about everything from his style to his favorite L.A. hot spots, our crush was confirmed when he admitted his favorite L.A. movie is Troop Beverly Hills. [Papermag]

In case you need reminding, these guys defined cool style. Take a few cues. [The Impossible Cool]
