'I wear what I like' Michelle O. hits back after U.S. designers criticise Alexander McQueen dress
The Daily Mail ^ | 2-1-11

Posted on 02/01/2011 12:36:33 PM PST by Justaham

Her wardrobe choices have been making headlines for all the wrong reasons. And now Michelle Obama has hit back at the critics who reacted with anger after she chose to wear a British design to a White House formal dinner. In an interview with Good Morning America, the First Lady insisted she will continue to dress in the clothes that make her comfortable - regardless of the label.

She said: 'Look, women, wear what you love. 'That's all I can say. That's my motto. I wear what I like because...I gotta be in the dress, so...'

Michelle dazzled at the dinner in a flame red gown gown by British designer Alexander McQueen but the gesture fell on stony ground in the U.S. The decision, which some argued was taken because of the symbolism of the colour red in China, highlights the scrutiny devoted to the outfits the First Lady wears for state occasions. TV presenter Joan Rivers was the latest fashion figure to attack Michelle, branding her her choice 'badly advised and wrong'.

She told the Huffington Post: 'Wrong. Wrong. Sorry! Sorry, sorry, sorry, but we're pushing America and we're so behind in everything that we're doing.

'We're trying to push our own industries, the president's coming out and saying we've got to make more American stuff, you know what, darling?

Hey Michelle - if you can “wear what you love”, even if it makes you look like a tramp, vagabond, or just a tasteless witch - then why can we not eat what we love???

That dress is ugly, regardless of who wore it or designed it.

Ever since that election night appearance in that Black Widow (and, no, that’s not racist) outfit, it was clear to most of us that her taste in clothing ranked right down there with her taste in husbands.

She looked like she wrapped herself in left over fabric. So she wears what she likes, well that is good to know because it would be worse to think someone else was dressing her.

It's this guys motto too, he can get away with it more so because he isn't the first lady, even though he wants to be.....

Hate to admit it, but she looks almost human in that dress. Where’s the boob belt and the plastic watches? I can’t say if she’s wearing a bra because, for once, the straps aren’t hanging out and there’s no bra line. Now, that arrogant little cretin on her arm needs to wipe that smirk wiped off his face. Geez, talk about looking down one’s nose at the underlings...

That’s actually one of the best dresses I’ve seen her in. Yet, I’m still wondering if a table somewhere hasn’t been left uncovered.

Do you remember the scene in “Gone With The Wind” where Scarlet ripped the drapes off the windows for material to make a dress? Well, this dress reminds me of that scene. Scarlett took the time to transform the drapery into a lovely ensemble.

Apparently, Michelle O’s designer decided to skip over that important step. Or maybe Michelle, unlike Scarlet O’Hara, has some real figure flaws that can’t be hidden any other way than to wrap volumes of material around her.

As far as the Obama’s having any loyalty to the USA or to the people who pay their food bills, well forget it....ain’t gonna happen...ever!

Mrs O wanted to surpass fashion Jackie Kennedy who traveled the world
as an acclaimed US icon---and redecorated the WH to universal applause.

Mrs O trotted off to Spain, then hideously redecorated the Oval Office---
proving herself to be a self-serving witch with absolutely no-taste.

>>>> "She looked lovely in that dress." <<<<

I agree. And I also believe that she picked it out herself.

During the first year, there was some weird social secretary who was a slave to "Fashion" and I think that that weird woman picked out a lot of outfits and gowns to INTENTIONALLY make Michelle look awful, just awful.

I agree. I also agree with her statement that one should wear what she likes. A dress or gown worn at a state function is always gonna aggravate somebody, why in the world I don't know, but it will.

In photographs it does, but in person it probably looks much better, though the strap should be worn normally. What I really care about is who is paying for all of Michelle's very expensive clothes.

I actually thought it looked far better than most of the other bizarre things she's worn.

Agreed. I remember reading somewhere that they spent around $10 million on parties and dinners at the White House during the first 8 months or so.

Plus, add all the salaries of her posse.

We need to see the numbers.

Some of her choices I’ve liked, some ,not so much. When it comes to fashion she’s a hell of a lot better than Hillary. Can’t say I ever saw Hil in anything that flattered her “figure”. Laura Bush and Nancy, on the other hand, always looked totally feminine and classy.
