Forget the Oscars red carpet-Michelle Obama gives the A-list a run for their money...(Govs' Dinner)
Daily Mail ^ | February 27, 2012 | Tamara Abraham

Posted on 02/27/2012 6:51:00 PM PST by maggief

The photos only offered us a glimpse. But it was all we needed in order to know that Michelle Obama wore something special to the Governors' Dinner at the White House last night.

Forget the Oscars red carpet, the First Lady's asymmetric gown gave the A-list a serious run for their money.

The pale, cream-coloured gown had a crystal-embellished bodice in a design of leaves and flowers, and a chiffon bow at the shoulder.

Here’s what the governors got:

Garden salad
Bread and butter
Ribeye steak 12 oz
Creamed spinach
Crab mac and cheese
Pear tart with ice cream
White wine

Based on conservative estimates of caloric totals for each of the items that found their way to the governors’ plates, and assuming consumption of a single glass of wine from the bottles that were placed on the tables, the total intake amounted to about 2,250 calories.

Michelle Antoinette shouldn’t have to hang out with fat riff raff. She shouldn’t have to hang out with this riff raff at all, but if she must, at least they should try to slim down with a 2000 calorie dinner. She deserves that much.

Nobody’s said for sure yet who designed the number, but many are speculating that it’s by Jenny Packham.

It’s hard when you’re butt ass ooooogly like phat ass mabelle michelle, to appear attractive in anything, no matter how much the fawning media trys to play it up. If this was a conservative white Republican first lady wearing the same rags as moooochelle, the media would be screaming & howling with scorn & contempt for the flea market outfits favored by phatass mabelle michelle. Plus she is back to her angry looking scowl. As much as I hate 0dumb0sh_t, it must be like hell living with that perpetually angry beeeeeotch!

I thought the gown was quite lovely and her hair and makeup were attractive too. For not being attractive and hard eyes, she looked nice.

The dress would be fine at a Hooker's Convention.....not at the White House. She shows no respect for her position as First Lady.
Another thing that makes her look nuts, is the way she jumps all over the place like a teenager, when around kids.

Without seeing the entire dress, it’s difficult to assess whether it’s a bit over the top but knowing her fashion sense I suspect it is. Parties and vacations seem to be all these two do so well and January cannot come early enough for me and my pocketbook.

She has a permanent frown frozen into her face. It's an obvious effort
for her to smile or look pleasant, and she accomplishes it infrequently.

She has a face sculpted by her soul.

"Was she overdressed for the event by comparison?"

It was a formal, black tie White House supper, official White House china and all (the table is also set formally). She was not overdressed. Since she was the hostess of the party, she sets the dress, and everyone else is judged accordingly.

"White wine with a rib eye?
How gauche!

A white wine can be perfectly acceptable, only true wine snobs stick to the "rules" of color anymore.

It is also not uncommon to match the wine with the side dishes or the sauce that is served with the meat.

The creamed spinich and crab mac 'n cheese may have had something to do with the wine selection.

Why did you feel the need to give us a definition of gauche? I find the folks here quite knowledgable.

I don't care if Michelle has ever, or does ever have pride in her country.

The important fact is that most of her country has no pride in her.
