New York Daily News ^ | Feb. 23, 2011 | Lindsay Goldwert

...So, how did a mere assistant win the coveted role of Michelle Obama's dresser in chief?

Koop used to work for Goldman – she was sent to Washington to work closely with the First Lady to see to her day-to-day wardrobe needs.

Now it seems that Koop is in and Goldman is out...

The Obamas must be getting desperate to appear normal now. The UK's DailyMail.com teased this story in early February:

Is this Michelle Obama's stylist? The White House aide rumoured to be First Lady's unofficial fashion advisor


Here are the two ladies, for comparison: Ikram Goldman on the left (with unknown), and Meredith Koop on the right (leaving the White House with Reggie Love):

I don’t think a new stylist is going to be able to hide that caboose.

I’m no fashion maven, myself, but both of those “stylists” look awfully frumpy, to me.

Neither one is very attractive, nor are their designs.

Perfect! Now we can add a new name to the list of unnecessary people the Queen Mum has hired. Personally, I could give a rat’s a$$ what she does with her hair or anything else.

I sure hope she keeps the Walmart look. I suspect that she will.

Getting ready for the campaign trail? Better frocks won't hide her hatred for this country! Sorry, her facial expressions tell it all.

Unless the new designer is going to make masks for her to wear in public! Possibly her designer should talk to the one who made them for Michael Jackson's kids!

The liberals tried desperately to make Barbara Bush seem like a fat lard. She was hefty but not a fat lard. Michelle probably would make herself look better if she wore the correct clothes. We can always thank God in Heaven that the Hucksters aren’t President. Now that would be two ton family for sure.

We pay 200k a year to have their personal trainer from Chicago fly in and train the Obamas 3 times a week. IIRC, there was a story in the Washington Examiner earlier this week. “Let them eat cake” indeed.

I knew somebody else had to be dressing her. I still cringe thinking how embarrassed she must have been when someone set her up to wear that garden-party floral dress to a sophisticated international cocktail party. I have to give her props for sailing on through. I’d have crawled under the carpet myself.

There is no hope for Michelle Obama. From all reports, she has been an angry, arrogant, and ugly person for her entire adult life. There isn't enough makeup and beautiful clothing in the world to hide that truth.

And it is obvious that Barry glommed onto her for the same reason he attended Jeremiah Wright's TUCC...street cred with "his people."

Why would anyone let this obese, ugly lesbian in a black velvet tent and sneakers design anything? Ugh.

Her first two years, michelle’s style was pretty pathetic. Tiny tight short sweaters squeezed over a hefty bum, making it appear elephant sized??

Huge prizewinner belts cinched under a nonexistent bustline?

Brightly colored kitten heeled low pumps that match nothing, worn over and over?

Bare, muscular arms in sleeveless dresses, making her look like a tranny?

She can only do better from here.

I think she dresses this way because this is what is good fashion to her. She just does not have any sense of how to dress.
Either that or she is purposely embarrassing us.

“”to see to her day-to-day wardrobe needs.””

Good grief - she’s STILL in need and I would say the same for the two who were hired to take care of her wardrobe! No taste, no class!!!
