Sheryl Crow's New Line... Michelle Obama's Next Fashion Stop...

After meeting fashion designers at a dinner held at Calvin Klein's home in June, Michelle Obama will get her chance to meet entertainment types in Los Angeles.

SHERYL CROW’S NEW KICKS: Sheryl Crow already owns some 80 pairs of boots, including a set by Dingo that she received from her parents when she was 14. But a crowded shoe closet isn’t stopping the 46-year-old singer from stocking up on more with the addition of boots, belts and bags to her fashion line, Bootheel Trading Co. While promoting her inaugural fall collection at Dillard’s in Las Vegas’ Fashion Show Mall on Tuesday, Crow donned a sienna-colored pair whose tips were worn white, with an orange henley, navy cotton vest and boot-cut jeans from her line inspired by the Depression era. “They feel like an extension of my foot,” Crow said of her kicks. She hopes to introduce boots as soon as next spring, with a children’s apparel line slated for the following fall. Her goal is to keep prices affordable for her customer, whom she described as “the everywoman across the board” between the ages of 25 and 45. To ensure that anyone can shimmy into her jeans, produced by Western Glove Works, she offers two cuts for the hips: wide and normal. “That’s an important and nice attribute to a jean line,” Crow said. “We are catering to any body type.”
