Daily Mail ^ | April 27, 2011 | Tamara Abraham

Posted on 04/27/2011 11:34:24 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia

In an interview last year, Ashley Olsen said that she would love to see Michelle Obama wear one of her designs. Now, it seems, her dream has come true.

The U.S. First Lady wore a skirt from The Row, the label Miss Olsen, 24, designs with her twin sister Mary-Kate, on The View last week.

Mrs Obama, who appeared on the show with Jill Biden, teamed the pale grey pleated Evelyn skirt, worth $1,170 with a cream V-neck and kitten-heel shoes.

Though expensive, the President's wife's choice represents a support of American industry, as all of the Olsen twins' designs are made in the U.S.

By ‘promoting’ American designers the mooch gets to write off the trip to the View. The taxpayers are giving her a free ride again.

I have an old lamp shade that looks just like that.

Okay, the “waist” is a little smaller on mine...

FAT should never wear pleats, and especially the very small pleats. That is a style that only a Size 2 or 4, could get by with. NEVER a size 12/14/16.

Exactly. My God, those of us who fondly remember Earl Campbell when he played for the then Houston Oilers remember that his thighs were so muscular as to require 34-inch legs in his jeans. All his pants were custom-made. I’m going to go out on a limb here and state that the thighs in this picture put Earl’s to shame - except there is little to no evidence of the presence of muscle...

Despite being mounted on the frame of an Imperial Walker, the skirt is probably one of the best garments in which I have seen her. I’d imagine on a hot young thing, it would be dynamite!

Stunning! She looks like a big jellyfish — a portuguese man-o-war.

Seriously, though — would she rather have that, or a 1-ounce Krugerrand, minted in Apartheid S. Africa?

That's for sure. I don't understand why she doesn't have some fashion consultant. And I agree with the other poster that she should stop slouching.

I’m no fan of “The Michelle Line,” but she does look better (sitting down) than anyone else on the View.

Moochelle doesn’t use Spandex in her clothing. All of her clothes are custom made using Span instead. Span is the same material woven into the cables supporting the Golden Gate Bridge it gives much firmer support for the large jobs. I am from Kentucky and I first learned about this from a friend who works at the Louisville tent and awning company where some of Moochell’s clothes are ordered from.

I so agree with you, and maybe someone less tall too. I’m about a 4, sometimes 6, skirt size but a little taller than Wookie. Pleats are not something flattering on me.

I know how hard it is to find clothes and shoes for taller, *bigger* women — but she could have a few nice things custom-made, and they DO make decent dress shoes now in big feet....

It makes me sick. She also tries to look 20-30 years younger with her clothes.

Maybe the "kitten-heel shoes" are cute, but the rest of the outfit is BLAH. It takes a certain je ne sais quoi to spend so much money to so little purpose.
