My thought seeing the close up — WHAT was she thinking!!!! and then what an embarassment, did her personal dresser, thrift shop owner pull that out of a grab bag or something?

But those belts are making her look extremely short-waisted, when a narrower belt sitting a little lower would do just fine.

I believe, it’s just like she says, she dresses the way she wants to. When is she going to realize that she is the FLOTUS and is representing our nation? Someone has to finally give her that message.

WHAT is this woman thinking??? Didn’t she just go shopping in Paris? Heck, get the woman over to Harrod’s! I’m sure Mr. Al-Fayed has staff that can help this poor woman! It’s not as if she doesn’t have money to buy nice clothes!

There was an article yesterday, I believe that stated she was paying for the trip out of their own money. Even if she paid for the meals & hotel rooms and such, the taxpayers are still paying for her Secret Service and her flights.

She really is extremely short waisted and the wide belts make it worse. I'd say no belt at all would be better, even something on the hip line would make her more in proportion. You need to check out the book at Barnes & Nobel, it's right up your alley. You could even to a DUFU kind of thing like PJ Comix.

I will check out the book next time I'm in the bookstore, Ditter.

I am short wasted, and I even know not to wear high-waisted pants or wide belts. If I wear a wider belt, I wear it right across the old hip bone, where is looks proportioned for me.

BIG, BIG mistake for Michelle with the belts.

I think she’s getting back at Our Country for her screwed up belief that she, herself, has been a slave.

She hates This Nation, and she hates the Brave Men who founded it.

Mohammad Ali once said (paraphrasing) that he blessed the day that his grandfather got on “that boat.” The vicious, angry, bitter bitch in the White House could take lessons.

When I hear a black moaning about slavery and how awful it was, while I agree, it was awful, I wonder if they have ever given a thought about where they would be had they not been brought to this country.

Slavery is always atrocious. It was when my ancestors were slaves. It was when your ancestors were slaves. It was when her ancestors were slaves. It was when Europeans enslaved other Europeans, when Africans enslaved other Africans—when anyone enslaved anyone.

None of us has enslaved her, and she's never been a slave.

She needs to give up that blustery gig, and ride on her own efforts--without these cheap, punk, false accusations.

I use plenty of flounces and ruffles for everyday wear...that is, when I am dressing my 2 and half year old and 9 months old granddaughters! They look adorable but FLOTUS looks attrocious!
Just when one thinks it cannot get any worse...it does!!!

Great posts.

Carole Burnett’s Scarlett skit had to be one of the funniest moments in television history. Michelle’s outfits are equally laughable. The difference is that Carole is a national treasure, but Michelle is a national joke.

I guess it will take a few hundred more years for this country to make up for its history of slavery, but until then, the likes of Michelle will milk the guilt factor for all it is worth.

Anyone who has studied history knows that many, or even most of us are descendants of a slave or two somewhere along the line.

It's really too bad that our first African American President and First Lady aren't worthy of the respect of the office. Michelle's choice of clothing as she represents our country is an example. She is not worthy.

And WHY does she always, always wear strange thick belts with every outfit??

Thanks for the ping, GOP_Lady!

It's a Money belt, she keeps Obama's Kenyan birth certificate in it.

It's not just the belts. Her entire outfits are weird and cheap looking. It looks like she buys whatever's left in the bin at the end of a week-long bargain basement sale.

She’s got an apron on.

That’s what I was thinking. Her daughters made it for her for Mother’s Day. Grandmom gave them scraps of trim to use.

At least she’s not showing her manly arms, for once.

My Polish grandmother wore thermals, a sweater, a housecoat and another sweater to complete the ‘Babci’-look. Was cute as a button on her-she was 4’11” with her shoelaced granny shoes.

Maybe it’s a Euro-thing? Or JCrew had a BOGO sale?

All I know is my tax dollars are hard at work helping her shop-hop in Europe...must be good to be queen.

I have never seen anyone in the public eye dress as badly as she does.

&&&
It truly is baffling. It is as if she is saying, “Yes, I know this is ugly and unflattering, but my friend designed it so deal with it.” And the designer friend is snickering behind her back.

Some women really are clueless about what is flattering for their figures, but, with all of her money she can afford to have someone pick out her clothes. Whoever she is paying now is a total nincompoop.

I hear the designer of the apron dress is Christopher Kane.

For real, or are you making that up? I am interested in following up.

It takes a unique mind to watch Planet of the Apes and use it to start a fashion collection, but that’s where Christopher Kane jumped off for Spring. He liked the apes’ leather tunics. “It was that, and then The Flintstones, Raquel Welch in One Million Years B.C., and then Dian Fossey and her gorillas,” he said. And, like all little boys, Kane loved playing with toy dinosaurs. Hence, the stegosaurus shoes.

Even his sister Tammy was incredulous at first. “When he started saying ‘prehistoric,’ I said, ‘What? I don’t know what you’re talking about.’” But then the pair started work, and what emerged was an obsession with scales, which somehow morphed into half-circle 3-D geometric cutting in organza or leather, and even a bit of menswear fabric. Then he worked in bright animal-spot “Flintstone” cashmeres (made at Johnstons in Kane’s native Scotland), photo-prints of Digit the gorilla, and finally, some suggestive marabou trimming on chiffon—a late thought about Peter Bogdanovich’s Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women for that special borderline-tacky touch that always puts the finishing stamp on a Christopher Kane collection.
