Fashion Editor Calls Out Michelle Obama For Acting Like An 'Indulged Starlet'
January 24, 2013
A renowned fashion editor was not impressed with Michelle Obama's behavior leading up to the Inaugural Ball.
The first lady reportedly asked between 15 and 30 designers to submit looks before going with this red Jason Wu number, which was kept secret.
"Mrs. Obama isnt an indulged starlet primping for the Oscars, nor should she behave like one," writes Bridget Foley, executive editor of Women's Wear Daily. "Women everywhere have big events for which they select a single dress in advance of the moment."
Michelle Obama's behavior is high-maintenance compared with that of first ladies' past, such as Laura Bush, Foley wrote.
Foley speculates that Mrs. Obama liked the attention.
"But lets say Mrs. Obama enjoyed the public guessing game; she must, or it wouldnt have happened," Foley writes. "The rampant speculation should have been handled differently."
The First Lady's dress selection process was unkind to the fashion world, Foley said.
"At the very least, with five minutes of attention she could have cut the list to a couple of finalists," Foley writes. "As it was, Mrs. Obamas fashion team needlessly disappointed and possibly misled many hard-working people, some of whom hoped vainly for a much-needed commercial boost."

I sense an audit in Ms. Foley’s future.
She's as phony as a 3 dollar bill.
Such fuss and this is what she chose?
That is exactly what Michelle is. She has always wanted to live ‘high on the hog’ and now she has her wish. She lives like a queen, no financial worries and dozens of bootlicking sycophants to cater to her every wish. Clothes, vacations, hair, shoes..the works and she’s livin’ it up on our taxes.
I’m pretty sure she’s not a racist, but soon she will feel like someone falsely accused of such. LOL
I suspect Queen Michele is also wearing a wig.
Imagine if one of the Bush or Reagan women had done this.
>>Bridget Foley is a racist for not being sensative to Michelle’s dazzling fashion sense.<
What is the Haute couture word for “boob belt?”
She’d look better wrapped in a tarp.
Mrs. Foley may not think of Michelle Obama as an indulged starlet, but Michelle Obama thinks of herself as a starlet and demands that she be indulged.
Anyoe who could decorate a Bell could design clothes for Michelle. She is built like one. Small at the top and bulging at the bottom. With enough teeth for 3 mouths.
The election is over, let the deconstruction for ratings, subscriptions, buyers and viewership begin. Despite Socialist intentions, profit is still the King.
I remember in the early 80's when the MSM went ape S%#T because Nancy was buying new China for the White House.
It was not so long ago that whenever George Bush 1 and 2 would go on vacation the msm would have the headlines reading "Bush goes on vacation again". Never mind that 2 usually went to the same place in Texas and 1 went to the same place in Maine.
That’s not a bad looking dress. It could be attractive on a woman with a bosom and a waist.
Ceinture de poitrine.
I see Ms. Foley retracting her words tomorrow.
It was also like to say, I am not the First Lady of all of the people; I just need fame now. I read that Mrs. Obama and her 2 daughters are into designer fashions. I think she is too huge of a woman to be a fashion model. She is transparent in other ways. We see her transformed by fake eyelashes, fake wigs, a custom form fitting girdle, designer dresses, lavish vacations, diamond accessories, along with her armed security teams and her constant run abouts to her Hollywood friends. She is like JJ (moving on up.. but JJ remembered where he came from which is why millions adored him so. In reality, we see an activist who hated the system; now she is benefiting from the very things that she hates. I cannot praise that when people are at the bottom working hard and being punished/overtaxed by her man; for just working. Call me a racist; knock yourself out in doing so. One cannot get way from the fact, that she is living a life of a Hollywood starlet. What are her causes!? To impress her media. Laura Bush had causes to really help with the support of women needing respect to their religious freedom across the world.
More like an indulged starling.
Exactly. I often wonder if she can be that dense about her fashion choices. She rarely wears anything that is flattering to her peculiar figure.
Her designer dresses look as if she bought them off the rack. For example, this dress has her bra bulges hanging out. What? Did the designer not have access to her for fittings?
I did notice on Inauguration Day, however, that she has apparently been getting help with her horrendous gait. When she and Obamugabe were shown walking in the street, it appeared that she was attempting to put one foot in front of the other instead of doing her usual Frankenstein stagger.
LOL! “Frankenstein stagger”!
“... a bosom gone to waist...”
I didn’t see one single moment of that disgrace called an inauguration, but later on I saw a clip of Obama and Michelle turning and walking away from the camera, at one of the balls that night. Her rear end was unbelievably broad....just massive. It hung in the air and kept moving even after they were gone, like the Cheshire cat.
Or one who stood up straight - you know, proper posture?
And, as usual, she is slouching. Can't she learn how to have good posture and look like a classy lady?
Sorry Sarge...I called it the Hanoi Jane look last week...but without the pics.
Did you not see Mooshelle on her Hawaiian vacation a few years ago, without her wig, exposing her Olive Oly do?
She had it pulled back in a ‘pony tail’. There was a short nubbin that stuck straight out from the back of her head.
Her hair was plainly broken off- especially in the forehead area. Mooshelle does NOT have the coveted ‘good hair’.
There is no way this kind of hair could EVER be transformed into the lush, straight bangs do today she and the Libs lie about as being her hair.
It is a wig or extentions or a weave. It is NOT her hair.
The crisscross top ruins the gown.
Not even the finest, most beautiful gown would look good on this ugly woman though.
She kept clutching her abdomen. She's just getting over a tummy-tuck and some serious liposuction. That's why she now walks like that.
She sure looks like a nicely tanned “wanna be” indian from India. My wife (part indian, part caucasian ) skin toned looks like that but her hair doesn’t have to be “de-kinked”, and of course my wife’s teeth are smaller and nicer.
Liberals got stuck in junior high.
Be more understanging! After all she had suffered from slavery she needs a little break!
The “Worst Lady” proves it again...just an affirmative-action, equal-opportunity hag grifter.
“It could be attractive on a woman with a bosom———”
Aw,come on Tax-chick,leave us less endowed women alone. God made me the way I am and so be it.
I was sewing more complex outfits than that when I was in junior high. The fabric and the cut reminds me of one pattern I had that was a sort of a one piece wrap around that included pants. I may have to drag it out so I can be hip again.
I’ve been thinking that since I first saw the pelt on her head. Thanks for posting the pics.
But it for certain does not look like a First Lady should. Night club attire for a chanteuse, maybe. But too much skin - which Michelle Obama seems determined to show as often as she can - for the wife of a president.
Hey, some people need visual reinforcement; this is for them. You did good!
I’m not round, myself, after losing 35 pounds. There are flattering dresses for every figure, but that one is not, for Michelle’s build. Halter tops are intended to show off large breasts.
Speaking up for de men who be lovin’ de niblets...
But not wookie niblets. Ptooie.
