Skip to comments.Michelle Obama's high fashion in hard times
Posted on 02/27/2009 10:13:09 AM PST by theruleshavechanged
Now, in this economy that is inflicting hardship on so many, the first lady is celebrated for her new vision of haute couture, while her social secretary socializes with the most glamorous names in the world of fashion. Change has indeed come to Washington.

you know what they say.....all the money in the world can’t ....well, you get the idea.
Hey she is one of those evil rich folks. Let her enjoy it.
WANTED: A photoshop of Marie Antoinette with fugly Michelle Obama’s hideous, evil puss.
The Obamas and the clintons are agreed on that much. They do it “because we can.”
She wears summer tea dresses to evening formal events. I think she is pretty clueless when it comes to fashion. The fashion industry would worship any woman married to 0, even if she walks like an NFL linebacker.
“Aristocracy is of the soul, not the cloth.”
It’s her “Let them eat cake” statement.
Of course it’s only a scandal when a republican indulges. Obama has just come off an inauguration three times more expensive than the next most pricey.
Third world masses need to see their “big man” living large.
And Michelle is oh-so-proud of showing off her lack of arm flab.
Us peasants can eat cake.
POSTED Feb 27, 2009 HatlessHessian: "Two words that Michelle should tell the rest of you all: WE WON. Deal with it. If they want to spend millions on redecorating the White House to get rid of the Texas redneck trash Bush left and wearing hundreds of thousands of dollars of fashionable clothes, so be it. At least it looks good on Michelle, unlike trailer park trash like Sarah Palin."
People fawning over this woman are just hilarious. What a perfect illustration of the old axiom “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. Personally, I find the arses of baboons to be more sightly than she. Frankly, she looks like a man, she looks like she should be on a woman’s basketball team, and I think I can imagine what terms Don Imus would use to describe her...
***She wears summer tea dresses to evening formal events.***
I recently found this quote by Loretta Young:
Wearing the correct dress for any occasion is a matter of good manners.”
She’s not clueless, she has bad manners!
LOL. At least Laura Bush is proud of her country. And Pres. Bush knew to let the Speaker introduce him in the Chamber, and that the US did NOT invent the automobile.
What happened? I didn't watch any of it. Did zero have an awkward moment?
Clamps, er, I mean Michelle is such a vamp...
Michelle is flaunting her arms on purpose. A publicist for the campaign commented a long time ago on her arms, in order to give the press something complimentary to focus on. They are playing 3 card monte with the Oprah crowd. (Credit to the freeper who called it that already today.)
Yes. He was so self-absorbed he forgot about letting Pelosi introduce him, and she had to interrupt him. lol
Enough already with the arm exposure, save it for formal events and warm weather. Is she going to start wearing sleeveless winter coats?
They’re more like the Duvailiers.
I agree. Her ‘prom’ dress was not appropriate for the inauguration. I didn’t feel that she didn’t know better; I believe she didn’t care. I think she wanted the night that Americans take to celebrate/welcome a new president to be about her status climbing - and so she wore a debutante dress to say I have ARRIVED!
She has well toned arms, yes. But she will wear sleeveless fashion in cold weather because she couldn’t quite face going to that non-state-of-the-union address without being singled out for particular attention for her arms! I believe she could be stately in the right clothing and with a little coaching, and that is more than I can say for myself. But stately isn’t enough attention for her. She thinks public events are about her or should be about her personally- even if it’s her husbands speech.
You know - that seems like it’s kind of ‘it’; she is trying to compete with Obama for prestige and attention. At present, she is employing her ‘style’ because it worked for Jackie Onassis. I keep reading that ‘people are comparing her to Jackie’ but no one ever admits that the comparison is unfavorable.
She’s a no-class, affirmative action thugette.
She is showing her arms to take the focus of her bowed legs
They say she has a pretty face. Maybe; but take the lighting and makeup away and let’s see what we have. LOL
Laura Bush is one of the most well bred ladies in the United States.
Tight skirt - nice way of saying ‘fat a*s’.
Why isn’t she being “rode hard and put away wet” like Sarah Palin was for clothes SHE GAVE BACK! This should be shoved in the face of every “journalist”, commentator, and bloviator at the alphabet networks! They need to back up their assertion that they are unbiased, because the only people who believe that is themselves!
Please! This is not an attractive woman. Her pride makes her uglier than sin.
At least it looks good on Michelle, unlike trailer park trash like Sarah Palin.”
Yeah, Michelle is such a looker. The only thing that would look good on her would be a burka. Palin is so beautiful that she could not look bad even if she tried.
Also, Bush knows how many states are in the union.
Somebody stole the sleeves from her dress.
...people are comparing her to Jackie but no one ever admits that the comparison is unfavorable.
Oh, I can see the similarities. Jackie was also a shallow status seeker, and the press worked very hard at giving her much undeserved favorable ink.
Yes, the culprit was (Whitey)who is responsible for all her failures in life.
Just A Shuckin & A Jivin,
The major designers worn by Michelle are hardly up and coming....Herrera, Karan and Jacobs
This is a good article....well written....exposes the Obamas for the fascist,white-hating elitists they truly are.
Maybe she will send her hand me downs to Obama's poor relatives in Kenya, if she is assured a photo op.
Michelle may be a beautiful lady, but she has an air of tragedy about her.
I'd prefer Vera Baker anyday.
She’s not so much “dressed” as “draped”.
yeah, she has dighted herself into a harlot.....
no wonder you prefer her
(sorry, hit post instead of enter.......must have thought I was IMing with my daughter)
She has to be stylin’!
Obasms have put her into the back bedroom.
feel the love...
Man is she ever angry at him in that photo.
Must have been taken around the time of the Vera Baker triangle.
First time I see the fabric up close. I thought it might have been some smooth silky fabric, but it's fuzzy instead! An imitation of cheap velvet. How tacky! The belt was obviously added later since the fabric clashes
What in the world are those earrings?
LOL ~ Notice the girl in prison stripes has her eyes on 'chelle's butt.
This picture is from another era, you may refer to it as the “Larry Byrd” era, which is long gone. Women’s basketball teams of today do not resemble what is shown here, rather they are comprised of manly looking black lesbians, much like the current first lady.
