Ok, The Ms. is in Russia. Let's discuss the fashion "O-con" as she represents the US in the USSR.

The first is the blue wallpaper dress with purple over a yellow sweater. For the life of me, I cannot understand why she buckles her belts over her sweaters.

take it from somebody who struggles with weight - she’s covering up the fact that she’s getting FAT

The belts double as an under-wire bra.

think about it - when she first got to DC in the winter, she was constantly in short sleeves. Now that it’s summer, she’s wearing these stupid sweater coverups. She’s gaining weight. All that good food on the taxpayer dollar.

I think her dress is perfectly appropriate for a trip to Russia. It looks like a Fabergé egg...just one that’s been scrambled.

I’m not so sure why the keep referring to her as a fashion icon considering she basically wears the same exact outfit with different colors and patterns: dress, cardigan sweater, stupid belt.

Do I have to say that the “icon” is sarcasm? I find her taste in clothing amusing.

She looks a mess.
She always makes expensive clothes seem cheap and tacky.
Were I a designer, I would refuse to let her wear my label.
She could get a job in fashion as a “Clothe-Horse” she has the look. especially the prominent teeth.

Does this woman not own a business suit?

She was an executive at one time.

Laura Bush was always dressed so well on these types of trips.

Oh, what an unfortunate picture. I hope that was poof, otherwise it looks like lots of junk in the trunk.

The big belts under the boobs do help to support “the girls” and draw attention away from the flabby abs.

One would think an admiring middle eastern potentate would gift the wife with some real pearls.

I don’t have a problem with either the blue-and-white flowered dress or the coral one . . . at home in DC, doing some daytime casual entertaining. Go to a foreign country representing your own nation, and you should wear something resembling business attire, at least something simple and elegant. And if you have or are developing a weight problem, there’s nothing wrong with wearing an Empire-waist dress, but do resume the workouts you’re famous for and display some self-control at the dinner table.

That cheap looking plastic ‘boob belt’ adds nothing to her outfit. Saw her going up the stairs to AF-1 in that outfit yesterday, she forgot to attach the Wide Load sign before she left the WH.

She has no personal fashion sense but is able to decorate and wear, badly, a 1960’s era ghetto living room.

Fashion ping!

U.S. President Barack Obama walks with first lady Michelle Obama and their daughter Malia (obscured) on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington July 5, 2009 before their departure on a trip to Russia, Italy and Ghana.

You make an excellent point about sleeveless in winter and sweatered in summer. There is something very goofy about her fashion choices. She is far too old and above pay grade level to try and dress so eclectically. Her fashion choices are totally clueless....I guess they reflect personality.

Actually, she looks like Aunt Tillie at the Church jumble sale.

If she lost maybe 25 to 45 pounds and had that dress cut down into something other than a shapeless bag with a belt, she might look better.

The sweater is just secretarial pool.

Maybe she sweats like a cold beer can on a hot summer day? So going sleeveless might work in the winter, but in the summer, she needs something to absorb her perspiration? I don’t know.

Everything from the waist down is BIG. It seems she is expanding before our eyes.

Oh my eyes.

Okay. It is making sense now.

If she perspires like a leaky faucet, the belt is being used like a dam. Putting it over the sweater gives it extra absorption reinforcement.

Seriously, is this woman freakin' color-blind?

That's a blue/green/white dress - why would anyone add a yellow cardigan and a purple-accented belt to it? And then travel in this monstrosity while representing our country?

If Laura had made these fashion errors, the press would never have let up....but since it's Zero's Missus, they're trying to convince us she's the second coming of Jackie O!

Growing up in the 60s, we had a sofa that looked JUST like that dress. Only without the dumb belt and banana-y sweater.

There are absorbing pads you can put under your dress or sweater to keep the perspiration from showing. They are sometimes visible under thin fabric. The sweater and belt will cover them up.

Regarding the belt - it appears to be clear plastic with interchangeable colored buckles - the coral color and the purple color. I’m surprised she hasn’t figured out that she could easily coordinate her shoes with this accessory, why isn’t she wearing the clear (goes with anything) jelly sandals that were popular a while back?
