Michelle Obama wears Marchesa to state dinner
AP ^ | March 14, 2012 | SAMANTHA CRITCHELL

NEW YORK — Michelle Obama chose an off-the-shoulder Marchesa gown for her duties Wednesday night as hostess at a White House state dinner honoring the British prime minister and his wife, David and Samantha Cameron.

It was a deep shade of teal in a draped, column silhouette.

The designer of the gown, Georgina Chapman, and her husband, movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, were guests at the affair, but they didn't know Mrs. Obama was wearing one of Chapman's designs when they arrived.

"I'm knocked out!" Weinstein said.

Michelle's dress is lovely and flatters her imperfect figure.......but it's spoiled, of course by the horse-collar hanging from her neck.

*ouch* that's gonna leave a mark. ;o)

My parents used to have a subscription to National Geographic and her face with the necklaces she has on really look like many of the images I saw in the magazine minus the very expensive designer gown. I am not trying to be silly or mean I am serious.

Those safety pins better be solid silver for that price!

If I were a head of state meeting Obozo, I'd make darn sure my 'people' told his 'people' ahead of time that I didn't want him to put his hands on me, other than a handshake. Obama has this smarmy way of touching the upper arm with his left hand, or --- as here --- putting his hand on the back of someone. It looks to me like a psychological method of him trying to exhibit dominance over the other person.

You are correct. The woman has zero fashion sense.
Maybe she just views herself as queen.

“”I’m knocked out!” Weinstein said.”

Well, I’m sure anyone would make a stupid statement like that if your brains leaked on the floor and you stepped on them.

If the clown Weinstein were around in Germany in 1936, I’m sure he would’ve insisted to his fellow Jews that Hitler was a person we could work with.

You are correct about the hand placement. BHO always places his hand like this as though he is pushing the person through the door, in middle eastern culture the last person through the door is the most important.

Ooooooh Mooooochelle...bad choice.

The off-the-shoulder style is NOT your friend.

It makes your back look like a linebacker's, your shoulders to slope like a buff masculine man's do (like John Thune's,) your arms to look even longer (if possible) from the front AND from the back, and your posture to look like you completely flunked White Gloves and Party Manners...or that you just don't have a clue as to how to (basically) hold yourself.

And the necklace...those overpowering bulbous casual bubblegum BAUBLES...seriously?

Are you now taking fashion cues from EUNICE? I'm telling Mama! ;-)

Meow an no offense to Marchesa.

Once again, she has pulled the cap sleeves down where they don’t belong, making big pointy lumps over her tiny little boobs. She may be beyond help. Obviously she is not reading our helpful threads! LOL!!

A simple, ornate oversized vintage topaz pendant (or any other oversized colorful cut stone pendant) would have been the proper complimentary-type piece to that class of gown.

I think even Eunice would agree. ;-)

I think Michelle’s dress is very pretty, but, and I don’t mean to sound catty here, she could really have used a Spanx undergarment to hold in her stomach, and smooth out the rear, where her, ahem, cheeks are showing.

I don’t care for the gown. First of all, the color isn’t flattering to her skin tone. While the bodice is decently designed (would look a lot better if she maintained better posture), the skirt is too clingy, too tight looking. The fabric pulls across her lower abdomen and even the back shot, shows too much gluteal fleshiness. Obviously the beads are gawd-awful...looks like they were purchased at Target in the jewelry clearance section.

The British PM’s wife doesn’t look nice either. Oscar de la Renta must be shaking his head in horror these days.

And OMG I just noticed that that’s a Christmas outfit that Eunice has put together—I noticed the plastic pointsettia and holly sprigs she stuck in her hair. LOLOL. And do I see a hint of tinsel on her um...apron? And the oversized brickabrack edging on her flutter cap sleeves? LOLOL. The funniest woman EVER.

That dress is one of her better efforts. It’s actually quite attractive.

She ruined the effect by the necklace collection. It would have been stunning in its simplicity had she left off jewelry at the neck altogether.

Michelle has finally found a first lady who has similar tastes. The other first lady has managed to make a ball gown look like a house dress.

The saggy bustline of the dress wasn’t meant for a woman lacking boobies.

Replacement is ready. Two discarded nuclear warheads are being polished and painted white.

Remember the movie “The Guns of Navarone?”

0b0z0ella fires an equivalent salvo before backing up. It kills people in a 25-mile radius; however, it avoids the annihilation of the city.

A tasteful solid gold black power fist on a dainty chain with matching earrings would have been a better look.

Did she take every last necklace from her daughters’ play jewelry? And the lack of boob support is ridiculous. Victoria may have a secret but Michelle lets her secret sag out for everyone to see.

Such blathering gobbledygook ...

~~~~~~~~

“Mrs. Obama gave a preview of the dinner during an afternoon meet-up with students from the U.S. and the U.K. in the State Dining Room, complete with an advance tasting of the evening’s dessert: steamed lemon pudding, a nod to the traditional English treat.

“Me and grandma and a couple of people, we’ve tasted the desserts, but you guys will be the first to taste the desserts tonight,” she said.

Then the first lady breezed off to check on preparations for the big dinner, saying, “I have to go look at the tent.”
And that’s no ordinary tent: It features a 150-foot-wide glass wall overlooking the White House grounds.”

*snip*

The Camerons received a wood and charcoal burning grill engraved with American and British friendship flags, along with his-and-her White House chef jackets embroidered with their names. The gifts were inspired by the Obamas’ May 2011 visit to London, when the two couples grilled burgers for American and British members of the military.

The Camerons, in turn, presented the Obamas with a pingpong table, a reminder that the president and prime minister played table tennis with some schoolboys during the Obamas’ visit to London.

Not to mention the muslim insult of touching them with the left hand. All that's left now is to slap them with the sole of his shoe.

Mrs.Cameron is a very attractive woman. Her choice of dress did nothing for her..can't think of anyone who would look good in this dress.

So much for the dresses and obozo’s big foot on the mooch’s choo choo train....how was the food and the booze?

The designer of mooochelle’s dress, Georgina Chapman, wife of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, were both at the dinner. Isn't he THE Weinstein who turned down oboma’s request to make a move of The One? Apparently Mrs. Weinstein/Chapman had no idea the mooch would be wearing one of her designs.

How those two in Our White House pander to those who can give them what they want. Interesting to see if Harvey changes his mind and decides to do the movie, after the obozo’s big play to please him.

For goodness’ sake, I wish that woman would stand up straight! The slouching does her no favors. I think she does it because she’s taller than Barry, and doesn’t want to make that obvious. And those necklaces . . . I think she imagines she has an “African” look going on.

Honestly, her stylists must really hate her.
