Your morning fashion and beauty report: Michelle Obama's Alexander McQueen gown might not have been politically correct

Oscar de la Renta is fretting over the red and black Alexander McQueen gown Michelle Obama wore to this week's state dinner for People's Republic of China President Hu Jintao. Not that the frock by McQueen creative director Sarah Burton wasn't lovely. But it should have been made by an American or Chinese designer, not a Brit, de la Renta says. Who knew fashion was so political? [WWD]

It looks like they took a black gown and soaked it in the blood of Tienanmen victims

The left shoulder is odd, but Kashyyk Barbie looks good here.

It’s a great dress for her but the strap down looks stupid. The designer, before he committed suicide last year, meant it to be worn with the straps up.

Why is it falling off her left shoulder? Was it designed that way? It looks sloppy.

Not bad, but she should have gone all the way and had semi circle of 4 small yellow stars, next to 1 larger one embroidered across the front of it. Perhaps a portrait of Chairman Mao as well.

1. Was that the national anthem of China and Hu forgot to raise his hand to his chest.

2. That`s a funny way for those 4 guys to hold their horn.

Look at this video. What has our country turned into?

Hillary sucks face with the communist DICTATOR and the commie flag in the background of Hill and Obama’s is appropriate.

This is just weird. The military officer riding with HU disses our military guy welcoming him.

Just once I would like to see this guy allow his wife to walk in front of him (at least help her down the stairs).

The designer, Alexander McQueen, claimed Lady Gaga as his fashion muse. Lady Gaga's bizarre clothing has been almost exclusively designed for her by McQueen. I think this McQueen-designed outfit Lady Gaga wore to last year's Video Music awards would have been a much better choice for the First Frump. She could still be dressed entirely in red, and we wouldn't have to look at her face...

The gown was designed that way, not so much unfortunately that is doesn't look like it slipped-off her shoulder.

I think that the gown is lovely, though, and it suits the wearer well both in color and design.

The move center campaign is ON making people think MO gives a rats petard about anyone other than her progressive ideals.

It's her fault too. I don't know why she puts up with that crap.

There is a really easy cure for that, just stop walking and if possible, find the nearest seat.
I have had to do that more than a few times in my life. Eventually, he realizes that you are nowhere around and will have to come find you.

In the future, he'll find it much easier to put you first, instead of backtracking to find you.

And .... Oscar de la Renta's opinion is "important" - WHY???

He obviously lives in an alternated universe, or else is exhibiting dementia if he seriously thinks that MO's ball gown is indicative of ANYTHING, much less has any intrinsic importance.
