I keep reading about the "GLAMOUR" Michelle brings to the White House...I'm sorry, this woman dresses like she gets everything at JC Penney. And there's nothing wrong with that...I don't care...but what I care about is the press constantly telling me that this woman is FASHION FORWARD and glamorous like I don't possess a set of EYES. In fact, I'll go so far as to say that she is the LEAST glamorous First Lady. I think Hillary Clinton dressed better and more appropriately...Did you ever think you long for the days of Hillary Clinton? Oy.

Are you a woman?

Dunno, as a guy, I don’t care how she’s dressed as long as she has clothes on.

Michelle belongs in Clown Quarterly (CQ) Magazine.

I know the reporters that cover her think she is a fashionably challenged woman who should be beaten like a baby seal by the fashion police.

The reason they don’t report that is because they want access to the fashion clown. And to give negative press could be considered racist.

After seeing Michelle in all these circus outfits, the Lil Mrs. Hillary pant suits are starting to look fashionable.

Don't forget the dresses she wore to the inauguration & the inaugural ball. The gold number she wore to the inauguration looked like they took down the gold drapes in the WH and the white number she wore to the ball looked like somebody’s white bedspread. LMAO

I actually don’t mind the red dress. (What? No belt?) The hideous blue flowered thing reminds me of upholstery circa 1965. IMHO she’s no glamor girl. Yikes!

Read the story “The Emperor’s New Clothes”. It explains how this whole Obama fashion thing works. Maybe frumpy is the new black dress.

Yes, I am a woman..and that’s my point..again, it’s exactly like the Emporer has No Clothes (a strange analogy)..the press keeps telling me something I know is not correct. One day someone is going to say it in public and all hell will break loose.

Lol. Duh. The press and media kept calling Pres. Bush a ‘conservative’. I know that was a lie. Labels mean nothing.

OK I know the press fawns over her but people aren’t blind. They see it and will just toss it away as an afterthought, complaining about it is sort of petty. Be like us guys and not care how she dresses.

Got say I agree with you........I long for the days of “Laura”.

That first photo of the President and First Lady reminded me of reading that Obamie was always losing papers when he was a ILLinois state senator........and he never did enough work as a US Senator to have any papers, right??

Look how the President is carrying his folders....the one on top reading “TOP SECRET”....binder spine not towards the ground...OK, I know it is picky.... so sue me!!!

Ooops..I had the title wrong on my post...you are correct, sir..The Emperor’s New Clothes! I remember reading that in second grade and it’s one of those things that sticks with you the rest of your life because of the visualization. The other short story I read as a child that stuck in my mind was “the Lottery.” A particularly relevent story now as well.

Did you see the peach belt/dress thingy she wore today (or maybe it was yesterday, the pic was out today)? It was God-awful.

This is Obama derangement syndrome. Unlike Bush derangement syndrome, where everything Bush did was evil, ODS attributes greatness to all things Obama.

Turns out its the same weak minded people who suffer from both BDS and ODS.

Sure, she’s an average looking woman...but with ODS goggles on, she is ‘glamorous’ and trend setting.

Other examples: The Messiah kills a fly and gets a media orgasm. Obama gives a lame excuse for keeping company with a race baiting idiot, and the MSM labels it ‘an important speech on race’

The list is endless...but its always the funniest when they get tingly over Michelle’s clothes:)

I think that's the point. They've found the only part that doesn't have an ewwwwww factor.

Think about it...the press wants to stay in their good graces (why, I don't know), so they feel they've got to compliment her at all possible opportunities. She's got a mean bitch scowl, an ass that requires its own zip code, no waist, no chest, and bow legs. But the arms look okay. So, let's compliment her on her arms.

This orange dress looks like something you’d wear to an afternoon wedding. It’s totally inappropriate for state occasions. Too low cut, color is too bright, and it is absolutely unflattering to her figure. She needs to get over the under the armpit belts too. She has a problem dressing her age.

We had a wedding to go to two weeks ago and my nephew’s girlfriend wore a belt high up under her breasts. My first thought was ugh! The belt did NOT go with the dress. I have no idea why she wore it and didn’t dare ask.

I’m reminded of a song we used to sing in Basic Training:

She’s got a pair of hips
Just like two battleships.
I bought her everything
To keep her in style.

The blue and green dress featured in the picture is from Talbot's. I saw it recently in a magazine. It's a take on the classic 1950’s silhouette and has a belt!

Talbot’s? Again, who cares, except that the press wants us to care and that makes it worse. She seems uncomfortable with fashion, and strong willed enough that she makes her own decisions. That’s cool...but don’t tell me I’m seeing blue, when I KNOW I’m seeing orange.
