Given Michelle Obama's penchant for Alaïa belts, it's no surprise the first lady is enamored with another French fashion icon: Carine Roitfeld.

Mademoiselle C director Fabien Constant confirmed to Fashionista that the White House requested a copy of the film—which tracks Roitfeld's the launch of CR Fashion Book—so that Mrs. Obama could do a private screening. Constant had no further comment on the matter, although we can presume he's thrilled by the prospect of fashion-loving Obama seeing the doc, which premiered in the States during New York Fashion Week.

Mademoiselle C is supposedly one of the first French films ever to be screened at the White House, which is indicative of the doc's success. Obama may be a lover of French fashion—and in turn, Roitfeld, the country's most prominent editor—but it also helps that the film had favorable reviews in the New York Times and other globally read publications. Constant's camp suggests that the positive press has helped to attract the attention of plenty of notable people across the globe, not just the FLOTUS.

Will Obama share her impressions of Mademoiselle C via Twitter? Let's hope. But given the fact that the government is currently out of operation, there's no doubting she has time to watch it.
