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?

She looked lovely in that dress.
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???
and Michelle Antoinette vacations where, when, and as long as she likes.
As long as Michelle Antoinette is happy.
That dress is ugly, regardless of who wore it or designed it.
She looks like she just finished rebuilding a transmission.
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.
Put her big ol ass back in the barn, Wilbur. We have had enough of Mr. Ed.
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.....
There will be no curtains left in the WH soon.
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...
Nice dress, suits her figure, the strap down looks stupid.
And what’s with Barack’s hands never more than a thin layer of silk away from his naughty bits?
She could be the best dressed, most beatiful, smartest FLOTUS EVER....... She still walks like a linebacker.
Mo never looked ‘lovely’ in anything.
This white hating/America hating woman looks like
awful no matter what she puts on.
I eat what I like too.
