Michelle Obama wore Isabel Toledo for the Inauguration
The Fashion Time Magazine ^ | Jan 21st, 2009 | The Fashion Time Magazine

Posted on 01/21/2009 11:25:51 AM PST by Mister Ghost

Michelle Obama was expected to wear either Maria Pinto, Thakoon, or Oscar de la Renta for the Inauguration ceremony, but the First Lady surprised us in a good way, when she chose a striking Isabel Toledo design.

The champagne yellow ensemble consisted of a gold-embossed coat and a yellow brocade shift dress with diamanté neckline. The coat was made of wool lace in a silk net, with silk radzimir underneath and a layer of pashmina for warmth.

Mrs Obama paired down her outfit with green patent Jimmy Choo ‘Glacier’ pumps and olive green gloves from J. Crew.

As the wife of the messiah, would that be holy Toledo?

Didn’t do a thing for her. She walks like she’s got a corncob stuck between her legs. A freight train could run between her legs and never touch either leg.

How much did it cost? We heard all about the cost of Sarah Palin’s wardrobe.

We’ve been told how Michelle Ma Belle is the new Jackie O’Kennedy and that women will be buying things based on her fashion sense.

So what’s the price tag?

How much and who paid for it?

If they can criticize Sarah Palin for what the Republican campaign paid for clothing, we can at least keep a running tab on Michello Obama's spending. And if the designers are just giving clothes to the first lady, then I would count that as a bribe.

I don’t care for the color but the design is nice. Why isn’t she wearing it proudly though? She’s stooped over and looks angry on a very happy day for them.

“Why isn’t she wearing it proudly though? She’s stooped over and looks angry on a very happy day for them.”

CindyDawg, while I'm not making any excuses for Miss “...for the first time I am proud of my Country...” Michelle, I think she is a very insecure woman. Not only does she have a body the size of an average man, she also has that ethnic portion made even larger by her ‘pear shape’. She seems to try and make herself disappear (or appear smaller) with her posture, which only accentuates the protrusion of her lower body. While her arms are quite beautiful, the bad posture only dwarfs the better part of her figure.

Just an observation.

Till we’ve all vented our loathing for that inappropriate Mother of the Bride dress. Besides, we’ve got nothing else to do.

I have to agree with you....she leans her head down in a very unattractive posture that a lot of tall women have....add in the big butt and the bow legs and she looks awkward in a lot of clothing. Even her facial expressions are of an odd, insecure nature. Only when she is angry does she seem true to form.

These designer threads just aren’t doing it. Never seen someone who looked this bad in near everything she wears. She should try normal clothes off the racks.

I have no talent so I'm gonna laugh at his ugly old lady. Don't intend to do it in public that much cause it's too easy of a target.

She looks great in the outfit in post number 33. I think she should just wear what she wants and stop listening to the designers.

The inauguration outfit was too sparkley, especially the rhinestones at the neckline. It looks like she's wearing a tiara around her neck. It would make a nice grandmother of the bride suit for a Spring evening wedding.

“How much did it cost?”

What ever she paid, it was WAY too much. I wish these morons would tell her the truth about how she looked. Both dresses were an embarrassment. On the bright side, the children looked adorable.

The outfit at the Lincoln Memorial was lovely and very becoming on her, and much more appropriate for yesterday than what she wore. That outfit yesterday was more appropriate for a dinner party than a daytime event of this importance. The evening dress was beautiful fabric but poorly constructed.

She is very ungainly and not in the least graceful.. she is basically a large-boned woman and thin-heels are not becoming in the least, she should wear the more chunky high heel IMHO... she needs to work in her posture. I suspect being tall she grew used to hunching over and has yet to overcome that habit.

Someone with some fashion sense needs to sit Mrs O down and explain FASHION to her and do her "colors" so that she wears clothing (all the time, not just when she thinks she's going to be 'on camera') that doesn't make her look as if she's wearing something too small or clothing that accentuates her "angles."

She's not going to be a fashion plate, but she would do well to have someone who knows how to help her do so.

She just about needs an entirely NEW wardrobe. And she definitely needs to steer clear of yellow and lime-ish green.

Or she could just start wearing a dashiki. At least it would hide all her angles and her butt.

Her hair here is very becoming. Wearing it "white" (oiled and pressed) is not particularly pretty on her.

Now that you mentioned it, that seems to be the only time she gets her head above her shoulders (and moving left to right). ;D!
