Posted on 06/10/2011 6:02:02 PM PDT by Nachum
President and Mrs. Obama hosted a decidedly more subtle state dinner for German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the White House Tuesday evening.
Though Mr. Obama presented Merkel with his highest honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the dinner otherwise lacked the glitz and glamour of the Obama administration-- with one noticeable exception.
First Lady Michelle Obama wore a shimmery ivory sleeveless gown by Naeem Khan, a designer she favors and also donned at the president's first state dinner in 2009.
Naeem Khan gowns retail from $5,000-$15,000.
Khan told the Wall Street Journal the first dress he made for Mrs. Obama was "priceless."
Known for her fashion, Mrs. Obama accessorized Tuesday with gold bangles by Alexis Bittar, which range in cost from $145-$695 per bracelet.

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Who paid for this gown? I bet I know. These people are just awful. How they get away with this is just unreal for me. I know others have had same pricey gowns. Yet the economy is terrible. They should be leading by example. Shameless to say the least... I guess I said more than “least”. sorry I ranted!
They have no shame at all. They’re ‘privileged’ with a blank checkbook now.
I remember my last $5000 dress fondly.
Best line I heard this week:
"Amazing, even if we elected half a Palin we'd still get more leadership than 10 Obamas.
Where’s the Mega Barf Alert?
I honestly have to say this this is the nicest outfit that I have seen her wear. So far, the only one with some class.
“Known for her fashion”
Yeah, those butt crack hugging pedal pushers will make you
a fashion plate in a hurry.
Can someone please explain how she can continue to afford all these extravagant gowns and jewelry?
A thousand pardons sahib. This would be a “Barfus Maximus”.
“CBS News Reporter Criticizes Michelle Obama for Wearing $7,000 Designer Gown in ‘Poor Economy’

On the day a poll showed Barack Obama owning the failing economic recovery, a CBS News Washington Bureau reporter questioned Michelle Obama’s judgment in wearing a $7,000 gown at tonight’s state dinner for German Chancellor Angela Merkel, noting that other guests “dressed more modestly.”
Writing on Twitter, CBS News reporter Christine Delargy said:
Gowns by Michelle designer Naeem Khan retail avg of $7,000. Good, bad image for Obama in poor economy? Most din guests dressed more modestly 30 minutes ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®...”
I guess Christine Delargy got an answer LOL!
I don't think I've spent that much on clothes in my life. I mean, on all my clothes, ever, total. And I'm 58 years old.
You can buy a lot of dresses with a trillion dollar stimulus packet.
I’m old enough to remember all the flack Nancy Reagan got for her gowns.
She HAS NO TASTE AND CERTAINLY NO STYLE!!!
If anything proves how utterly in the tank the media is for anything Obama, it’s the blind loyalty even in matters like this! For her figure, she has worn AWFUL, and I mean AWFUL clothes that did NOT enhance the right areas, and those belts UGH! Please, haven’t we suffered ENOUGH ALREADY?
“Known for her fashion, Mrs. Obama...”
OK... this author is a comedian, right? The author probably thinks that Huma is “beautiful”, too.
Can’t the MSM be honest about anything?
