Chinese Critic: 'Our First Lady Is So Graceful And Elegant, Leaving Michelle Far Behind'

First lady Michelle Obama (L) and Peng Liyuan, wife of Chinese President Xi Jinping, pose for a photograph as they visit Forbidden City in Beijing.

It was the eagerly awaited meeting of the world’s two most important first ladies.

But there was a clear winner when Michelle Obama met her counterpart Peng Liyuan for the first time in Beijing.

As photographs and television footage began to emerge of Mrs Peng and Mrs Obama touring the Chinese capital, the country’s online forums were quick to claim victory in the “battle of the First Ladies”.

“Our First Lady is so graceful and elegant, leaving Michelle far behind,” said one critic. “We have won this time,” remarked another. “Ours is more refined and eye-catching,” said a third.

There was praise for Mrs Peng’s belted trouser suit, with flashes of crimson at her neckline to match her red earrings and clutch, but some questioned whether her high heels were sensible enough for the cobbles of the Forbidden City. But without them, Mrs Obama would have towered over her.

Their Communist is more elegant than our Communist.
I agree.

When the Dalai Llama visited Obama, he had to exit the White House past piles of trash.
Now we've gone further -- we've sent trash to China.

The world should be thankful there are no pics of her panty line among other things which shouldn't be seen. Such an embarrassment.

Pretty hard to make a Wookie “refined and eye catching”....

At least she wasn’t wearing some clown outfit she tends to wear thinking she is making a fashion statement...

That pant suit Moochie has on doesn’t even come close to fitting properly....I guess there wasn’t room for her stylist (unless her mama is getting paid as her “stylist”) on the plane after the dozens of her “friends” got on.

Trailer trash, that is. Perhaps it was MEANT to be an insult to China. If so, the plan worked.

Whoever put the Mooch in that outfit should be fired .... hideous .... bad color, bad fit. You’d think she’d have enough common, much less ‘fashion’ sense to just say no to wearing it - they must not have let her get anywhere near a mirror before she left the hotel.

A pleasure trip including her entire family, complete with an army of aides, security, food and liquor, the most sumptuous and expensive accomodations in China, and no pesky press. All on the taxpayers’ dime.

Michelle didn't like her picture being taken in that one. You can tell she feels humiliated by the elegance of China's first lady.

Of course I in no way agree with the China way of communism, one baby, deaths in the square...but this picture isn't about that.

It's about arrogance and pride...and those are two very different things.

This is what happens when you don't allow your own friendly media to go along. Everyone else gets to frame the news to fit their own agendas.

"Real" news is getting out when our own MSM is not there to shield it.

Everything is wrong with Michelle in this picture. Bad pose. Bad outfit. Unlady like. Just plain ugly.

Peng looks great.

It is a shame that our country is poorly represented on the world stage. We truely have fallen.

Given honest elections in both countries, Xi Jinping would have gotten a higher percentage of the vote than Obama did. :)

Even the Chinese first lady’s hairdo is more flattering to her appearance than the Mooch’s long tresses. After a certain age long hair brings out the vertical creases in one’ face and makes one look older.

The Chinese lady has a nice belt at the appropriate position on a slender waist, elegant attire.

The American beast has a high belt with no waist to be seen, securing tent-like pants, upper torso covered by a huge blanket vest. Moochelle needs to ditch the high belts that support her boobs, as belts are meant to go around one's waist. Beastly attire.

China’s “first lady”, a vain communist fascist of the People’s Liberation Army, is not elegant.

Why does mooch wear boob belts when bras should be able to do the job?

I have never seen a woman in real life wear a belt so high it is right under her breasts.

Something else must be going on here.

OK - so the Chinese dictator’s wife is better-looking. The difference is that we picked our First Lady - theirs was imposed on them. And Xi Jinping’s wife can order people killed without consequence to her, whereas Michelle can’t. Any day of the week, I prefer ours to theirs - our is a First Lady, whereas theirs is a Queen in all but name.

One does not negate the other.

No one claimed Obama was elegant, but for some reason people here are claiming elegance to the psycho Chinese Communist “first lady”.

Actually, perhaps you should reread the thread...most of the comments are regarding the trashiness of Moochie who certainly doesn't portray a fashion icon that is expected of wives of the US president.
