Michelle Obama: America's Lady Diana? (Slobbering Synchophantic Barf Alert!)
The Sunday London Times ^ | January 25, 2009 | Sarah Baxter

Posted on 01/24/2009 4:02:51 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

The First Lady has excited the fashion world, but like Diana she would rather champion the less fortunate than be a mere clotheshorse.

Michelle Obama’s flair for fashion has captivated Washington and set the hearts of glossy magazine editors aflutter. She has already eclipsed Carla Bruni, the super-model chanteuse and wife of Nicolas Sarkozy, the hyperactive French president. Not since Diana, Princess of Wales, has there been such a glamorous role model at the apex of society.

In her white, one-shouldered chiffon gown, she boogied to Stevie Wonder’s Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours and slow-danced with her husband at a succession of inaugural balls. Barack Obama held her lovingly around the waist, clasping two fingers around her back, and nuzzled her. Women’s Wear Daily, the influential American fashion magazine, said her ball gown made the Obamas look like newlyweds.

By the time they reached the last ball in the marbled hall of Union Station after midnight, “Michelle looked absolutely exhausted but still managed to keep smiling. It was quite an intimate dance – they were either collapsed in each other’s arms or feeling very close to each other,” said another dancer.

Michelle, 45, has a theatrical sense of style, from off-the-rack colourful clothes from J Crew at less than $100 a throw, to pricey designer outfits such as the sparkling lemongrass matching dress and coat that she wore to the inauguration ceremony. But she is determined to carve out a role at the White House that is more than national clothes horse.

Just like they "impacted" Chicago?

I can see the horse reference, but the rest?

They can’t sell the Jackie O stick; so they are changing to Diana. LOL

Michelle Obama looked civilized at the Inaugural festivities BUT she's no Princess Diana or Jackie O.

And, what makes these nitwits in the media think that women are interested in the * frivolous * * trivial * anyway.

Michelle is being portrayed as a fashion airhead. Is this what she went to college for? Isn't she a lawyer?

What's next Aretha Franklin's turban with the huge bow?

Flare for fashion - who are they talking about?
Well, she is like Diana in one way they are/were married to really stupid men.

She is an ordinary woman with ordinary charms. They do her a disservice when they try to assign attributes to her that don’t fit. Because inevetibly you look at her and say ... here are all the reasons she is not Princess Di.

Kind of like claiming a former first daughter is “beautiful”. You can say nothing about her looks, or you can say she looks nice. But if you call her “beautiful” it just highlights the fact that she isn’t.

We have eyes and can see the fashion blunders for ourselves; who do these weirdos think they’re kidding?

Michelle could wrap herself in toilet paper (which it looked like she already did at the inaugural balls) and they’d say how avante-garde it was. Everything is manufactured with the Obamas, with the media trying to tell us not to believe our lyin’ eyes.

"Isn't she a lawyer?"

Not really. Only a couple of years after she got her license she voluntarily gave it up by court order. Obama gave his up also. Very strange.

Wow! At least we know Princess Michelle will be “keeping it real” for her kids. You know, so Sasha and Malia can stay in touch with the real world and people will like them for who they are.

Yes, I was thinking my kids would be popular pretty quick if they invited some friends over for a scavenger hunt that ended up “chilling with the Jonas Brothers”.

But then I thought, “Geez how much would that cost and wouldn't people start thinking my kids were spoiled and wouldn't my kids start acting entitled to everything and.......”

Yes. The comparison to Jackie O is ridiculous. Jackie would never have worn an evening dress to a morning event (the Immaculation)and she NEVER would have worn toilet paper to the Inaugural Balls.

Comparing Michelle-mabelle to Diana? Only if Diana was a bitter shrew.

Michelle was quite irate over Mattel making Sasha and Malia dolls.

I would think she would be happy to have them for role models for young black girls.

The only way this article makes sense is if Sarah is some bizarre lesbian who wants to sleep with Michelle.

She is actually quite beastly; arms past her knees, bad bite, angry face, no shape, hunched over b/c she is taller than Hussein.

It will be like the media trying (desperately) to push Serena and Venus Williams as sex pots. I believe one of them was chosen ‘sexiest athlete alive’ one year. Of course, they are nice women but tough on the eyes. That embarassment is over; it die of its own incongruity for Blackie O too.

“Michelle, 45, has a theatrical sense of style,”

Her debut as first lady included playing a matronly frump and a Grecian toga mama.

Excuse me while I gag. BTW didn't they mean the one-shouldered charmin gown??

BUT, some lucky person can win a replica of that dress.

That article is creepy, full of disinformation and nauseating.

I'm more at ease Michelle being compared to Lady Di because Ozero's father was a British subject. In that sense, UK can have Michelle and the Trojan horse she rode on.

So far Michelle hasn't exhibited any of the gold-digging whorishness of a Jackie-O or a Diana but time will tell.

The first lady with her string of "Jackie O" pearls
puts America in mind of the striking similarities
between Jackie Kennedy during her "Camelot" years and
the vivacious, trendy and stylish Michelle Obama who
has already sent world fashion in bold new directions.
