Green with envy: Michelle Obama stuns in exotic peacock dress at Hispanic gala (Barf)
Daily Mail ^ | 9-15-11 | Jessica Satherley

Posted on 09/15/2011 2:25:39 PM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

While greeting a Latino audience to support her husband’s speech about opportunities for Hispanics, Michelle Obama decided an exotic gown was in order. As President Barack Obama spoke at the black-tie event, the First Lady looked stunning in the strapless raw-silk dress by U.S. designer Chris Benz. She appeared to be inspired by an Amazonian peacock as she sashayed into the Washington Convention Center with matching emerald hued earrings and classic black heels. And Mrs Obama seemed delighted with the President’s pledge to put more money in the pockets of Latino workers by the look of her ear-to-ear grin on...

The pictures are all Getty, so you have to go to the link. The title had to be shortened per FR rules. THere wasn’t even room for a Barf Alert.

Michelle really diminishes Obama in those pictures. Never have I thought they looked so mismatched as in these photos.

It’s an okay dress. Would look very nice if full length and not so fitted to her bottom.

Anyway if media sycophancy makes you barf, why are you so unkind to share it with us?

The dress's pattern looks like one of those Magic Eye posters where if you focus your eyes just right a 3-D image will appear from her belly.

"Zero looks like he is suffering from AIDS."

Zero is suffering from his lack of experience outside of an insular academic world, which I may add he was barely a struggler to participate. He is suffering from his incredible size ego, of which is being crushed by it's own size. He is suffering from an erosion of the middle he counted on for survival. He's suffering from an angry far left for failing to do what he promised them in quiet. He's suffering from an angry right for enacting legislation nobody was allowed to read beyond sound bites, only to discover it contains the wet dreams of Karl Marx.

Zero has a lot to be sad about. He really aughta consider staying out of the oval office and pounding that champion wookie butt full time. We'd all feel better.

The fabric looks like upholstery, as so often with Michelle, but on the whole, the outfit is less aggressively ghastly than most of what she wears. I give it a “Not Awful.”

Her hair looks very nice in this new style. But the dress is ugly and I can’t figure out why, being so short-waisted, she insists on the belted look. The belts emphasize the short-waistedness and all that weight she’s carrying below the belt.

Michele is a big woman.. there are lots of big women in this country... so I have no problem with her size.. ...my problem is with the press pretending she is the 2nd coming of jackie Kennedy and a fashion trend setter..

There was nothing terrific about the dress.. in fact I think her choice of clothes is terrible...

But the press is vested in making her the 2nd coming...

It looked better on Barbie..Plus Barbie didn't wear a boob belt with it.

Not a bad dress.

She doesn't look that good in it, but whatever you think of her, after dozens of slams piling on more is in bad taste. There is such a thing as diminishing or inverse returns, especially where spouses and children are concerned.

Buried deep in a photo caption:

Princess Cristina of Spain and her husband, Inaki Urdangarin, attend the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute's 34th Annual Awards Gala

How did Spain, which probably oppressed the ancestors of today's Hispanics/Latinos more than anyone else end up muscling in on the victimfest/pityparty?

I just looked at the pictures they took and am surprised that the White House let them go public. She looks like she smelled something bad, has her manly arms flexed, and has her back porch, front lawn and driveway overflowing.

And this "stunning" woman is preaching to us about our fat kids . . . are all the mirrors in the White House in Obambi's room?

I don’t think much of the dress, it looks like a cheap plastic covering. That’s definitely a wide load stuffed into it. Is that belt supposed to make her look slimmer or fatter, I can’t tell which.
