Inequality? Michelle Obama Rocks $2K Dress to SOTU
fox ^ | 1/25/12 | staff

Posted on 01/25/2012 9:54:34 AM PST by Nachum

Michelle Obama Wore a $2K+ Barbara Tfank Dress to State of the Union

“As the President declared his intent to help buoy the 99% (“Asking a billionaire to pay at least as much as his secretary in taxes? Most Americans would call that common sense,” he declared), his wife dazzled in a cobalt sheath from Barbara Tfank’s resort collection. While reps for the brand won’t reveal the item’s retail price, a similar style from the collection is currently available at Barney’s New York for $2,400.”

Isn’t it amazing, how Sarah Palin was a self-absorbed, clothes obsessed selfish witch yet Michelle Obama is such an elegant fashionista?

I hate the biased MSM.

Everyone around her looks dressed for business and MO is dressed to go clubbing.

The SOTU is not a cocktail party. Another fashion blunder to add to the voluminous list that Mooshelle has accumulated in their first, and prayerfully, last, term. She has absolutely no sense of style and could just as well dress from the clearance rack at the nearest Goodwill.

A woman should NEVER wear a cocktail dress to a professional forum.

Whatever event a woman attends, she should always dress appropriate to the occasion.

She stuck out like an a$$hole because of her inappropriate attire. She is NO woman.

I dunno, I was just glad to see she chose something without a boob belt for this occasion.

Looks a lot like a dress I made in the early 2000s for a school banquet my daughter attended. I paid $75 max for the fabric, pattern, and zipper. It fit her better than this fits Michelle.

Like my mother used to say, “She looks like a big fat sausage tied in the middle.”

I’m so glad that the slob used 2K of my tax dollars to cover that fat body.

The Lame Stream Media will be trying to make a fashion statement out of this instead of the hypocrisy of such fashion.

Right.

And, at least she didn’t wear one of those wall paper print dresses.

Still, the cocktail-lounge frock was out of place.

FLOTUS Arrives at SOTU Tuesday, January 24, 2012 at 10:35P

Rush said Moochelle was wearing a $2,400. dollar cocktail dress to Barry's 'Soak the rich', 'fairness', speech.

There were, from my scan of the repeated crowd shots, quite a few inaapropriate outfits. Do they now subsidize the sequin lobby? There was a woman (Congresswoman?) in bright blue, jacket trimmed in sequins and beading and had hugh and series daisy (made of the same fabric and sequins) on her shoulder. I looked like a Mother of Groom, but I Hate the Bride, get up.

Me!chelle’s frock (and the similar cocktail dress worn by Farrah, I mean Dr. Jill) was just wrong for the setting. You dress for the occasion. They didn’t.

Can’t wait for SOTU when Mrs Gingrich; Santorum; Romney or Paul dresses appropriately.

"Whatever event a woman attends, she should always dress appropriate to the occasion."

She was ready to go out partying as soon as Obama was done rattling his choppers. She would never have had enough time to be ready for the party if she had dressed appropriately for the State of The Union.

A quick change of clothing is not a hard task, you just have to plan ahead.

She was making a statement.....”I am Queen and there is nothing you can do about it”.

Wrong bi%$ch. There’s something called an election coming this year, and guess what......YOU ARE OUT!

She “kind of like(s) being called Your Excellency.” Her own words, coming back from the Hawaii vacation on our dime, again. What’s $4,000,000+.

Let them eat Wagyu, Kobe and drink Krystal.

I think that was their Escort Collection. I’m not normally part of the fashion police, but I thought it was tacky.

I thought the same thing. She had on a cocktail dress. It wasn’t appropriate for the speech. She always does this though. Can’t wait till she’s outa there!

I don't know. $2K may not be such a bad deal when you consider how many yards of material went into building that dress.

That stuff ain't cheap you know.

Take away the makeup artist, hairstylist and designer duds and she’s down right ugly. I think she dresses like this to take as much attention away from Barry as possible.

You are exactly right. This is a cocktail dress at what should be a business setting. But then whoever is advising her on fashion has NO idea WTF they’re doing.

She NEVER dresses appropriately. From the church service the day after the inauguration, to wearing a sundress to be given a special tour of Westminster Abbey (she looked like she was taking her kids to the zoo instead of representing the American people and visiting an historically significant church. I have seen photos of her getting off of Airforce One (when she actually traveled with her husband) wearing a tank top and denim shorts with sandals.

She has no sense of her position. She is a representative of the American people. The way she dresses shows her disregard of both the people and their government.
