Michelle style: Here's how to get it
St. Louis Post Dispatch ^ | 05-02-09 | Debra D. Bass, Post-Dispatch Fashion Editor

Posted on 05/03/2009 9:24:02 AM PDT by GOP_Lady

First Lady Michelle Obama continues to ignore the comments of both her fashion critics and fans in deference to what appears to be her own individual style.

< snip >

She's not always the belle of the ball; Obama's had a few looks in the dare-I-say frumpy category, but at her best, she's stunning and modern.

< snip >

When Obama finally met with French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, a former model and media darling, it was discussed as a bout of fashion heavyweights. Obama won.

Yes, you, too, can get Michelle's style!"

Don't forget the belt and the sweater that's too small!

I keep hearing about her arms.

When is she going to do something about the rest of her body? Her LEGS? Her THIGHS? Her CHEST? And most importantly her mind. Her head is full of racial hatred.

There is a picture of Michelle where she looks like a screaming ape. Can anybody morf that picture from her to an ape?

"Obama won."

ACORN and massive vote fraud must have been involved.

Nonsense. In the photos I saw, Ms. Obama looked like a very badly upholstered Barca-lounger next to the ethereal Bruni-Sarkozy.

I have yet to understand why she spends all that money on the crap she wears only to look like she shopped at the thrift store.

That said to anyone who cares to emulate her...Her “style” will work for best for those who have the size and grace of a moose and clown shoe feet.

Politics aside, I hope that the First Lady will encourage women of all ages and races to dress better. Or is this a nice thought because it will not happen?

Her clothes look like they got them from the 50% off Clearance Aisle at Crossdressers ‘R Us.

She’d gonna be the new Dah-ling of the transvestite community, seeing as they have similar body styles.

Yeah.....if she’s such a fashion plate then why is it we never see anyone attempting to copy her. All these Urinalists need to run out to J Crew and be sporting sweaters 3 sizes too small and belts under their boobs. Anyone see that happening?

She almost always looks like she just crawled out of a bag of rummage sale rejects.

I dress way better than that and I get along off newport-news.com, JC Penny, NY & Company and the Limited. Some of my favorite things I got at Peebles. I can only imagine what I could do with her fashion budget.

I wanted to dress just like her, but when I went down to the thrift shop, it was out of business. Boy was I glad. LOL

Yeah, that little number she's wearing is really 'hot.' < / sarcasm >

Have we done a poll yet on her absolute worst outfit? I think this one should be in the top five of worst outfits ever.

I keep asking, what are those velcro strips in the waist area for? Those white things? And that black bow off to the side? Is that for contrast vis a vis the velcro strips?

The JessicaLondon.com catalog features the Michelle Chic Collection inspired by Michelle Obama. I used to shop at that site. I will not shop there again until they drop that clothing line.

“Michelle “Style” (?) How to get it.

1. First steal millions of dollars through “organizing your community”, then get promoted through “affirmative action” and get bumped ahead on every job because of your ethnicity, steal some more public money through your “job”, have some real corny books ghost written through friends or cronies, then take the money and buy some $540 sneakers to go with your fat ass and big arms.

LOL!!! OK, meow alert... every time I see this woman, I always have the thought that she'd better not wander into Alaska.

What's even funnier is seeing how the press is so desperately trying to convince us that she's the epitome of class and beauty.

In this case, the empress IS wearing clothes, and they UGLY.
