Simply Stunning–

Michelle Obama’s dinner dress cost more than the annual poverty level in the US.

Via Twitchy:

Stu Burguiere @WorldOfStu Michelle Obama's dress = $12,000. US Poverty Level = $11,490.

Last night the Obamas hosted a state dinner for French Socialist leader Francois Hollande.

Michelle Obama wore a $12,000 dress – while the rest of America suffers through the worst economic recovery ever.

Boy, if there were an actual opposition party in this country, they could use this to fight the Democrats.

One would think for twelve grand she would have a dress made that is more flattering or at least less highlighting of her enormous derriere.

That woman is NOT eating her peas.

I am not so bothered by this. I wonder if this was taxpayer money though? But it is a State Dinner and a fancy affair, so fancy dresses are pretty much required. Also, the $12K figure was a wag from a CNN host on one of their shows. Another guest guessed $10K, I don’t know how they can tell by looking.
We must not be hypocritical while pointing out the hypocrisy of the left. Seems that both sides flip on every issue depending on who is in office. If it was a Republican lady, we would be OK with it. So what we have to do is say WE are fine with it, but taunt the “occupy” crowd with the 1% angle of it. How about going over to DU and posting “Welcome to the 1% Michelle! Way to go!” ?

Doesn't anyone have the nads to tell her what styles flatter her body type and what styles don't? She is a tall small breasted, large waisted woman. The classic one piece dresses down to the knees in vibrant colors look good on her. What she's wearing makes her torso look short and emphasizes her flatness.

That, and she doesn't seem to know what good posture does for a woman.

Maybe a slim black satin skirt would have been much better. Carolina Herrarer can’t think that this was a success.

Somewhere in America, some circus is missing their Big Top tent...and a couple of elephants still hiding under it.

My heavens--could the dress designer have designed anything that makes her look like the most extreme example of steatopygia any more? It doesn't even look like it was ironed before she wore it! For $12,000, I'd want to look GOOD in my dress. VERY good. This thing looks like a schmatta made up of flotsam and jetsam, inhabited by an ogress.

No First Lady should EVER have to walk ALONE three paces behind two heads of state.

For the short walk, she should be properly escorted on the arm of a military man wearing full dress uniform.

But then, Obama is such a narcissistic clod....and Francois the Frog is notorious for using and abusing women....so everything and anything unsophisticated about the three of them doesn't surprise me in the least.
