D-Day: Carla Bruni-Sarkozy and Michelle Obama - the first ladies of fashion
Telegraph UK ^ | 06 Jun 2009 | Sarah Mower.

Never mind that there was a French military band playing in the background, for a moment the D-Day images that the cameras were capturing in Caen became surreally interchangeable with shots from a catwalk show.

Two tall women, one of them a model, were swinging in step in classic “paired” runway formation. Both were almost identically dressed in knee-length cream with belts, bare legs and heels. They could almost have been modelling some designers’ collection named “First Lady Spring 2009”. Undoubtedly the choice of colour worn by Mrs Obama and Mrs Bruni-Sarkozy was a coincidence. Hell would surely freeze before two such self-confident dressers would confer over what to wear.

Mme Sarkozy stands out. Ms. Obama just stands there.

I'm just looking at the distance between the ladies' belts and their bustlines.

Either Michelle needs those wide belts to hold up her boobs - or her boobs need a better bra!! She always picks those WIDE belts for some reason!

NO COMPARISON HERE. THE ARTICLE NEEDS A BARF ALERT

Carla, as usual, looked elegant and appropriate. FWIW, white is the most totally appropriate color to wear for a somber official occasion. In the days when people actually paid attention to etiquette, white was considered the color of mourning in Summer.

Michelle is a very large woman, tall and gawky and big boned. When will she learn that the belt goes under the jacket, at the waist or slightly below? Never hiked up to emphasize the girth and big stomach.

THIS IS WHAT THE OBAMAS WOULD BE UP AGAINST:

I think that all of the guys that were involved in D Day wore pretty much the same thing. There were no stories about allies wearing similar attire.

Although she should avoid wearing black, since it's not the most flattering color for her, this is one of the rare occasions where she actually looked good.

This picture, if the colors are true finally shows me how badly matched her shoes really were.

I could not believe the coat had a white lining when I saw it, ugly fabric, but color and lining are totally bad!

I'm confused...didn't Bruni leave Sark?

And aren't there nude pics of Bruni?

And last but most importantly...when did politics become reality t.v.?

Agreed! Looks good unless this was a summer sheath in the Washington Winter again.

When you make “other people” uncomfortable in your dress...it is not well chosen.

It’s a gown by Michael Kors. She wore it to the Times 100 gala in NYC.

Except that one wore a thin belt at the waist, while the other wore a wide belt under her breasts. The first, looked sleek, the other one didn't.

Kors is usually very classic. Lots of attention to detail. I have several items and shoes bags and belts too...not overly expensive, especially with a sale and coupon or similar discount. Nice material and never seem to wear out.

Not always good. Could mean no reason to go shopping again!

Carly-bright, radiant, lovely, beautiful, proud. FANTASTIC

Michelle--gorilla looking face with limp straight hair (sometimes her hair when styled well can be attractive--not here), unfortunate coloring (many black women have lovely shimmering skin, Michelle's is blotchy and washed out), angry, stilted, uncomfortable, frowning. EEEEWWWW. She lacks both inward and outward beauty.

The First Lady of France would look swell in a burlap bag and Michelle 0bama..well you can put lipstick on a pig but it is still a pig..Michelle can wear the most expensive of designer gowns and still look like a cleaning woman.

Hate to agree and I would add a shorter hair style such as the one she has here as an up do is more flattering too.

OMG! Not the “Michelle is soooo stylish and beautiful” and “Barack is sooooo suave and debonair” puff pieces again! Talk about the Emperor has no clothes! Barry looks like Steve Urkel all grown up and Michelle looks like a guard at a medium-security women’s prison! Oh, and that Carol Burnett skit about using drapes to make a dress? That was a comedy act, Michelle, not a fashion tip!!

On second thought Michelle’s hair doesn’t look that bad. It is just hat we can see her unfortunate face. Not many women would shine next to Carly, but Michelle just looks like she wants to crawl back into her cave. Laura Bush would be radiant with her lovely soul shining through. There is no shine to Michelle. She is a dark creature.

The angle, accompanied with the elegant look, softens her. When she wears her hair whether up or down, I think she should continuing lowering her bangs.

Is it possible that Michelle’s waist is that high? The outfit minus that belt might have looked just fine (says the “fashion don’t”).

Where’s the difference? One’s a shrew and the other is a gold digging narcissist.

Give me a real lady like Laura Bush anyday. Her beauty outshines both.

Look at Michelle's face. She's already decided she doesn't like Carla. And the HIGH BELT??? No matter what she wears, she's going to look like . . . Mr Ed in drag.

I don’t see how you can call Carla a gold digging narcissist.

Carla is much richer than her husband. She comes from a very old, fine, aristocratic Italian family Bruno-Tedeschi.

She is extremely well educated, and speaks five languages.

She is also very beautiful. Where is the problem?
