Irans Fars news agency has Photoshopped a picture of U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama from the February 24 broadcast of the Academy Awards, electronically adding material to her dress to make it less revealing.
The dress, a shimmering silver, sleeveless gown by Indian-born American designer Naeem Khan, was widely praised in the U.S fashion press.
The official White House photo is above.
In its rendering of the photo, the Iranian news agency raised the neckline and added short sleeves.
Fars, which is affiliated with the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), noted that it was unusual that Michelle Obama had announced this years award for Best Picture, which went to what it called the controversial and anti-Iranian film Argo. Traditionally, Hollywood notables announce the winners.
The hard-line news agency said the movie is a production of the Zionist Warner Bros. Entertainment company.
Since its release in October, Iranian state media have blasted Argo for its unflattering portrayal of life in Iran following the 1979 revolution.
While Fars apparently did not approve of Michelle Obamas dress, it did like the attire of the wife of Palestinian director Emad Burnat, whose film, Five Broken Cameras, became the first Palestinian documentary film nominated for the prestigious award.
The interesting point to notice in the [Oscars ceremony] was the presence of the wife of the Palestinian filmmaker in Islamic hijab, Fars commented in a short news story devoted to how Burnats wife was dressed.
Fars, which frequently accuses Iranian actresses of flouting the Islamic dress code at international award ceremonies, seemed to suggest the Palestinian woman could be a role model for Iranian actresses.
The comparison between the clothing of Burnats wife in the Oscar ceremony and the attire of Iranian actresses in international festivals is worthy of reflection, it said.
The Fars version of Michelle Obama's Oscar appearance
How about this one. “Apparently, Iranian Mullahs like those double-wide rear ends.”
Or, “The only thing that was missing was a WIDE-LOAD sign and and chase car.”
Anything that covers up more of her is fine with me.
Why bother? Just insert this photo. Rather flattering, eh?
‘I’m...to sexy for your Mullah...too sexy for your Mullah...’
Oh, it;s just a little something off the rack.
As in towel rack.
Mullahs in Hammer pants....”I like big Butts, and I cannot lie.....”
The words Moochelle and sexy do not belong in the same sentence.
Sexy is not the first word that leaps to mind when thinking of Moochelle.
For those of you who see no positives in the coming Islamic Caliphate.....Moochelle would be forced to don a burqua.
Actually, as a former Costumer designer, that was the best gown I've seen on Lady Gagya in ages.. Let me tell you, designing for her is a hefty task.. Madam Depressant, has more than her Fair Share of shoulders, and hips that help to disguise her abundant midriff, and extended arms..
I can't help but think of the program, the Carol Burnett Show, where Carol was portraying Scarlet O'Hara, in the dress with drapes with curtain rods.. jus sayin'
Nothing is too sexy for a man dressing like a woman!
Something about “silk purse, sow’s ear” comes to mind.
There’s no profanity adequate to describe the occupants of our White House!
