A First Lady hasn't received so much positive attention for her personal style since the days of Jackie Kennedy. So it was big news when First Lady Michelle Obama dropped her stylist for a new one.

Until recently, Chicago boutique owner Ikram Goldman was the First Lady's go-to style guru. But now it seems that 29-year-old Meredith Koop, a personal assistant for Obama, is now giving out the style advice.

"Ms. Koop's responsibilities include advising the First Lady on her wardrobe and acting on her behalf in arranging for purchases, including considering the best offered price and buying on discount if discounts are available," said Kristina Schake, a spokeswoman for Michelle Obama.

Not much is known about Koop, other than she used to work for Goldman and was sent to be her on the spot stylist. It's unclear why Goldman was relieved of the position of stylist.

Without having to purchase designers solely from Goldman's shop, Obama is able to expand her wardrobe choices to many more designers and we're excited to see where her style will take her next.
