FILE - This Oct. 16, 2012 file photo shows President Barack Obama embracing first lady Michelle Obama on stage after presidential debate at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y. Every year fashion offers up the good, the bad and the ugly. But what the industry is really built on _ and consumers respond to _ is buzz. The wives of the presidential candidates turned out to the second debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney in practically the same shade of hot pink. But they weren't by the same designer: Ann Romney's was by Oscar de la Renta, and Obama's by Michael Kors. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)
