WASHINGTON (AP) — Michelle Obama is teaming up with TV's Tim Gunn to honor some of the nation's top designers — including the creators of popular computer fonts and Swiffer floor-cleaning products — at the White House.

The first lady hosts a luncheon Tuesday to honor winners of the 2011 National Design Awards. The awards are presented by the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York City.

Earlier Tuesday, Gunn of "Project Runway" fame will host a teen design fair at the Smithsonian to introduce Washington high school students to careers in design.

This year's design award winners include Matthew Carter for his lifetime achievements in typeface designs that include the Verdana and Georgia fonts for Microsoft. The Boston-based design consultancy Continuum wins for product designs including Reebok's Pump shoes and Swiffers.

I think the Obama's were so inadequately prepared to run our government that they have lost their sense of reality. This is the "worst of times."

These people are so easy to hate, but while they fiddle with designers and Ramadamn dinners, the nation slides rapidly down the sewer.

(Another) Obama (homosexual/metrosexual) funfest at taxpayer expense to prove they are leading the culturally elite of the world ...

Unlike those barbaric “teabaggers” who cling desperately to their faith and their guns.

Maybe Tim can give her some fashion advice while he’s there. I’m sure he’s just dying to rip into her closet.

Wow, that’s a tough one. I can’t decide if its the Black Widow/Communist flag dress or the outfit she wore touring London. My eyes are still watering over that one. But I fully expect the Boob Belt to be inducted into the Smithsonian as a historical artifact.

Double Whammy there. Boob belt and bow which makes her look older.

“Honoring” fashion??

I think the word they were searching for is “mocking”.
