SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Much like Jackie Kennedy and Michelle Obama, TV’s newest First Lady is a fashionista in the making.

Actress Lisa Vidal plays First Lady Christina Martinez in The Event, a new mystery sci-fi series premiering September 20 on NBC.

Vidal says being First Lady certainly has its perks, starting with the amazing wardrobe.

She says her first experience shopping for her character was visiting Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, where series stylists decked her out in a fancy Valentino dress and Christian Louboutin heels.

Vidal says it felt “like heaven” but despite the designer duds, assures that her portrayal of the First Lady isn’t only about fashion.

To fit the bill of a strong, smart leader, she’s been drawing on inspiration from her own favorite first ladies – Jackie Kennedy, Hillary Clinton, and Michelle Obama – although Vidal’s version will be extra “fiery,” since she plays a sassy Cuban opposite Blair Underwood, who plays the president.
