Fashion Editor Calls Out Michelle Obama For Acting Like An 'Indulged Starlet'

Ashley Lutz
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 isn’t 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 let’s say Mrs. Obama enjoyed the public guessing game; she must, or it wouldn’t 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. Obama’s fashion team needlessly disappointed and possibly misled many hard-working people, some of whom hoped vainly for a much-needed commercial boost."

Bridget Foley is a racist for not being sensative to Michelle's dazzling fashion sense.

I sense an audit in Ms. Foley’s future.

Ya think?

She's as phony as a 3 dollar bill.

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.

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.

“Bridget Foley is a racist for not being sensative to Michelle's dazzling fashion sense.”

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.
