Modestly chic: Michelle Obama dons a headscarf as she visits mosque on Indonesia trip
Daily Mail (London) ^ | November 10, 2010

Posted on 11/10/2010 5:42:06 AM PST by Zakeet

Her impeccable dress sense has been praised throughout the world.

So it was no surprise that Michelle Obama managed to be stylish and show respect to her Muslim hosts when she visited a mosque on her tour of Indonesia.

The First Lady covered her hair with a beige animal-print scarf as she toured Jakarta's Istiqlal Mosque, the largest in southeast Asia.

But there was a nod to her sartorial instincts in the form of beads and turquoise fringing at the neck.

Though her wide-legged Stephen Burrows trouser suit was simple in cut, Mrs Obama is never one to shy away from vibrant colour, and the edgy chartreuse hue was evidence of that.

She last wore the outfit by the Harlem, New York-based designer back in July.

Taking off their shoes, as another sign of respect in the place of worship, she and her husband strolled along a carpet laid across the sprawling courtyard together.

If it were me, I would refused to even go.

BTW, was there ever really an Office of Protocol, like the Goldie Hawn movie? She sure could use it!

Please. You have to include a "barf alert" when you post these stories. I had to reach for the trash can after I read the first sentence.

This is the kind of nonsense people in the SRM have to churn out if the papers they work for are to have any hope of getting interviews with left-wing leaders like Obama.

Republicans don't enforce that kind of arbitrary control of access, and we all know the result.

Yeah it's brutal, yeah it's nasty. But it works.

It’s that jihadi look that’s so in fashion these days.
She left her other fashion accessories in the limo (AK47) and ammo belt belt.

So why didn’t don the little hat to tour the temple in India?

Ok, if she had been wearing 4-inch heels under the pants and then took them off, I could understand the pants being too long. But she always wears flats! So why so long?

Obama looks like he is enjoying having her tow the Muslim fashion line.

Actually I think her modest loose fitting fashion is an improvment.

Everyone’s pants are too long when they take off their shoes. Looks like Michelle was worried about tripping in one of the pics. She seems to be trying to hike up the pants. It makes her look like a little kid that has to go to the bathroom though.
