Michelle Obama wows in Alexander McQueen gown
The Hill ^ | January 19, 2011 | Christina Wilkie

Posted on 01/19/2011 9:46:11 PM PST by Zakeet

First Lady Michelle Obama donned a stunning, one-shouldered, red gown on Wednesday night for the state dinner for visiting President Hu Jintao of China.

Her color choice was a gracious nod to her Chinese guests: red, while the dominant color of the Chinese flag, also symbolizes prosperity and happiness in Chinese tradition.

The dress was designed by the label of Alexander McQueen, a beloved British designer who committed suicide less than a year ago.

Well...it’s design does hide her hips....but the off shoulder part looks disheveled....I’m trying to imagine what I would say if it were Laura Bush wearing it.....

I’m sure it looks nice in person, but in the photo it looks like she wore it while rebuilding a truck engine.

Eh, NOT.

Looks like someone took a perfectly good red dress outside and had someone run over it with oily tire tracks. Can’t they hire that gay Clinton guy from “What Not To Wear” to dress this woman for the WHITE HOUSE?!?!? Good grief.

I don’t think that thing was meant to be worn on only one-shoulder. It looks like one strap just fell down.

And what’s with the screwy illegular neckline”
And the color?
Why mess up red with the dark slashes- or did something fade on it in the laundry?

That was my first thought. For starters, regardless of criticisms about the color, pattern, etc, if you’re going to call it a one-shoulder design, the other arm should be bare!

The Communist Chinese/African style dress was bad enough.

That dress looks like a piece of red cloth that was used to wipe up a oily mechanic shop floor!!

But then again the story of the Emperor's clothes comes to mind. These fawning liberal press can NEVER say anything critical against Obama in the same way they can NEVER say anything good about conservative republicans.

"STUNNING" might be a more appropriate word.

Causing or capable of causing emotional shock or loss of consciousness.

.........it looks like she wore it while rebuilding a truck engine.

Old, old truck engine that was missing most of the valve cover gaskets for a year or two.
One thing though, I bet she could manhandle the heads on a Cummings by herself, no shop hoist needed by her ;^)

I can't stand the woman but I must admit, this is the best I've seen her since she and her Kenyan husband moved into the White House.

I’m reminded of the Empire State building being lit in red to honor the Chinese something.

I don’t care much for pandering to Red China. Our trade and financial policies, however, are really no different.

Hittlery reminds me of an aging Bette Davis trying desperately to look twenty years younger than her actual age. With all this work, I gotta believe its only a matter of time until she will be cast as the lead in a re-make of "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?"

UGH... quick: Check out Hillary trying her best to be Scarlett O'Hara at the picnic at Twelve Oaks in #28! ("Fiddle de dee...").

She looks like a 60-something woman trying to be a teenager in that pink getup. :-O

I think she looks great. Too bad she chose commie red though. It reminds me of when Clinton wore the bright red tie when he visited Vietnam:

It should’ve either been a true one-strap dress or a two strap dress. The cut looks fine but it looks as though one strap slipped off. The color is good on her and the black splashes are okay.
