Modestly chic: Michelle Obama dons a headscarf as she visits mosque on Indonesia trip
Daily Mail (London) ^ | November 10, 2010

Posted on 11/10/2010 5:42:06 AM PST by Zakeet

Her impeccable dress sense has been praised throughout the world.

So it was no surprise that Michelle Obama managed to be stylish and show respect to her Muslim hosts when she visited a mosque on her tour of Indonesia.

The First Lady covered her hair with a beige animal-print scarf as she toured Jakarta's Istiqlal Mosque, the largest in southeast Asia.

But there was a nod to her sartorial instincts in the form of beads and turquoise fringing at the neck.

Though her wide-legged Stephen Burrows trouser suit was simple in cut, Mrs Obama is never one to shy away from vibrant colour, and the edgy chartreuse hue was evidence of that.

She last wore the outfit by the Harlem, New York-based designer back in July.

Taking off their shoes, as another sign of respect in the place of worship, she and her husband strolled along a carpet laid across the sprawling courtyard together.

“Impeccable dress sense” ??!

The woman generally looks like a bag lady.

Embarrassing for only HALF of us. The world knows only half this country wanted these abominations. They can’t embarrass me- they don’t represent me any more than do drag queens. Disgust me, yes- the Husseins, not the drag queens( at least they are honest about what they are- screwed up, but honest.)

The Obamas-I didn’t want’em, I’m not claiming’em, they’re not my fault!

The interesting thing is that on the RIGHT body & in the right & appropriate setting, some of her outfits might work

But many are just plain outrageously ugly

I think we've been slow to catch on here folks. I think the media has been laughing at her all along, calling her a "fashionista" and all, and laughing like loons every time they publish that.

I think it's a private joke by all the "journalists".

I have no explanation why the photos of the First Couple at the mosque brought Edward Lear's famous nonsense poem to mind.....I must be getting giddy.......

The Pussycat with her Owl went to mosque garbed in a puke-green suit
She looked undone-y despite plenty of money
And designers and dressers, to boot
The Owl looked up to his wife above and sang to a small sitar
"O lovely Pussy! O Pussy my love
What a beautiful Pussy you are, you are
What a beautiful Pussy you are!"

Then they dined on quince and slices of blintz
Which they ate with a runcible spoon
And hand in hand, to the Taj Mahal band
They danced by the light of the moon, the moon
They danced by the light of the moon.

Well, at least in this pic she doesn't look like Diana Ross and the Supremes.

I wonder how many little girls will be asking Santa for a Michelle Obama wig this Christmas?

Between the outfits HRC and Michelle are wearing overseas, it looks like we are exporting the Great Pumpkin and the Jolly Green Giant.

What ‘little hat’ are you referring to? Maybe you are mixing up Jewish temples with Hindu temples?

Ok, if she had been wearing 4-inch heels under the pants and then took them off, I could understand the pants being too long. But she always wears flats! So why so long?

I was wondering that too. Boy does she look uncomfortable. She appears to be holding up her pant legs to keep from tripping. Doesn't she travel with a staff person who can stich a hem? Or maybe she was wearing four inch platform shoes. LOL!

To anyone who says “who cares, it doesn’t matter what clothes she is wearing”, I say:

Michelle’s clothing is a symptom of a far greater problem, which has been hinted at after their election debacle. The Obamas seem to be taking no advice or suggestions from ANYONE about ANYTHING, not even the most obvious clothing issues.

I’m a complete reject when it comes to fashion, but you can bet that if my husband became president, I’d hire the best people who wouldn’t let me go out in public like this!

No I’m not.

At first it was planned that Obama would visit one of the great Hindu Temples while in India. He would have been required to wear a head covering while there. A Baseball cap would be a no-no. It was said he canceled the visit because of the head covering making him look “Muslim”. So now he takes his shoes off.

I went and found the article where I got the news.

http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalpunch/2010/10/is-obama-skipping-temple-over-headgear.html

“......The New York Times, citing an unnamed American official involved in the trip’s planning, reports that the president will not stop at the Golden Temple, a Sikh holy site and one of the country’s most popular tourist attractions, because visitors typically wear headscarves, turbans or Muslim caps.......”
