The dress first lady Michelle Obama wore at last night's state dinner was the topic of discussion last night on CNN:

One guest thought the cost of the dress was close to $10,000.

"Well, first of all, I love the dress on her because I think it's so elegant and so simple. I mean, that shape is what we call the princess shape. It's got that sort of poof at the bottom that's very sort of billowy at the same time. It's strapless. I think we want to call that French blue, maybe," said a guest.

Did you see the dress? It is poofed up below waist like a Cinderella dress to hide her big behind.

And of course tax payers paid for the dress.

I thought it was hideous! The top was pretty but, to me, didn’t go with the bottom half

Are you sure we paid for the dress? Why should we pay for her effing dress????

That said, Caroline Herrera is one of my favorite designers - not that I have anything she made - but if I won the lottery....in my dreams...

In Spanish, there is an old observation, older than my great-great grandmother, often used, which perfectly fits the thread,

OMG....ROTFLMAO!!!!!!

The dress is gorgeous. I think the moose is lucky she’s tall because she doesn’t have much more than that going for her. Herrera and all the stylists did a good job making her look decent.

There was enough material in that dress to make a circus tent.

the bottom half

the color had to do with France... so i read... i also read that Michelle added the black velvet belt to the dress... she should have left well enough alone...

I remember MSM go foaming at the mouth rabid when Mrs. Reagan wore designer dresses (for State Occasions) free from the big designers. Now, not a word.

Eeew. I hadn’t seen that view. I liked it in the side view, where it looked like it was an ordinary full skirt.

Her entrance to the ballroom was preceded by loud flapping and rustling noise, along with the metal taps on her flat black shoes.

I saw a shot of her walking and apparently there was a voluminous over skirt over a much slimmer skirt. With just the slimmer skirt the dress would have been quite elegant. Too bad. I could only tell in that one pic.

I like it better with the slim skirt....without the voluminous ‘wings’. Would have been quite elegant.

I liked the full skirt - if it was just a skirt like I thought - with Michelle’s height. Very grand. I’d look silly in it!

The state dinner was held in a TENT during 17 degree weather... how much carbon was spewed into the atmosphere by heating this event?

YES!! That was my thought too...TOO funny!

It takes more than an elegant dress (which I actually thought looked a little too "60's prom queen bouffant") to look elegant...you have to know how to wear it, and walk in it!!

I wonder if she sat down for dinner? with that skirt? did she have petticoats/crinolines? LOL!

I am sure they purchased carbon offsets/s

BTW, does anyone know how to get into the carbon offset business? Talk about a high margin business. PT Barnum would have loved the people who buy that crap.
