State of the Union style: First Lady wears Barbara Tfank (Moo in blue at tonight's doo)
Philly.Com ^ | January 24, 2012 | Esther Lee

Posted on 01/24/2012 9:39:18 PM PST by Zakeet

In 2010, she wore red. In 2011, she wore white.

So, what did Michelle Obama wear in 2012? A politically-charged, patriotic shade of blue.

The First Lady looked regal in a short-sleeved, sapphire-blue, Barbara Tfank dress Tuesday evening for the President's State of the Union address.

Tfank, a New York and Los Angeles-based designer, prides herself upon designing pieces that are "timeless."

[Snip]

The First Lady's hair and makeup looked perfectly elegant as well... and we're dying to see some photos of her shoes.

Looking as chic as ever elegantly dressed as an ink drop in the latest style that tastefully accents small breasts and large tummies.

Note: The photos and the last paragraph of the article were taken from a Huffington Poo article titled: Michelle Obama State Of The Union Dress 2012: A Blue Barbara Tfank! This was done due to copyright restrictions on the snaps (AP in the original article vs. AFP in the Huff Poo piece), and because the final comment was simply too good to pass up.

You would think that with all the high paid fashion consultants on Marie Antoinette's staff, someone would know that you should always wear a boob belt when donning a sleek satin bed sheet.

The arrogance of these people. Look miserable jobless people! Marie Antoinette is back from her taxpayer funded vacation wearing a designer dress that costs as much as a new Kia!

I think that outfit looks incomplete without a crown and scepter.

I have to say, this dress is the only one that looks half way deceit on her.....Or it could be the two bottles of beer and the cold medicine I took earlier.

IF she’s attempting to “look like” she’s with child, you can bet it isn’t “Bath-House” Barry’s doing.

I wouldn’t put past the “residents” of the White House to impregnate Manchelle with anonymous sperm just to get votes from their idiot supporters. (Hell...they could probably fool their supporters with a pillow under Manchelle’s dress.)

I agree..
she is not one of my favorite people in the world but this color was electrifying, and bet it set Hussein's budget back 3 or 4 thousand $$$..

and the average American is struggling and the retired seniors are really, really struggling.you would think they would not flaunt their wealth they have acquired these past 6 or 7 years..on the campaign trail just four years ago she was complaining about having to pay student loans for the both of them!!! so folks..get POLITICAL, go to Congress, and come home RICH..

you don't need to go through the change to keep from getting pregnant...but to have a child at 48 is not a wise decision to mother or child

and I'm pretty sure she would not enjoy a new baby at this stage of her life..but those afternoon matinees can get a middle aged broad in trouble.. L O L I've known several...

True, it’s isn’t a wise choice at that age, but again it is possible. That was my only point.

My own mom was child number 14 born to my grandmother when she was 49..

she had her on a bet by a neighbor farmer who said...
‘Lilly bet your baby days are over, gram said to the farmer, bet you your milk cow they aren't!!
nine months later my mom was born, the family inherited a milk cow.....true story...

I hate the wave, the dress is ill fitting, it looks like she’s got sour balls in her mouth, and she’s got a bag of potato chips hidden under the dress.

gram and my mom both are enjoying their eternal rests in Heaven...

my gram especially as she was a widow when my mom turned 12 and she finished raising her family alone...she had nine sons who all served in the Military during WW l and WW ll, plus raised four grandchildren and slowly watched as her children grew and departed...she was a strong willed woman.

miss my mom, she always shared such cool family history with me..she too was a wonderful woman..she lived to be 85 the last born, the last to die...
God has a purpose for all of us I'm sure..
have a wonderful Wednesday...

The dress does a great job of showing off the huge blob of fat she has hanging off of her belly.

There are “patriotic” shades of blue?

Where it's so shiny (reminds me of those cheap -- but bright -- sateen grammar school dance recital costumes), it's hard to tell, but it looks like a shade of blue an Israeli teacher of mine once pointed out as the shade Arabs favor to repel evil spirits . . . probably not, though, since it doesn't seem to be working! ;-)

I'm not a fashion expert but that dress doesn't seem to be appropriate for the occasion.

She's better suited to standing on the corner of a used car lot that's advertising a zero down payment, sign and drive car sale.......

These pictures do not adequately reflect the fabric she is wearing — a shiny satin, it appeared. It did not look appropriate for a solemn occasion such as the SOTU. None of the other ladies were dressed in shiny fabrics. I don’t mind the color, or the style. But, the fabric and the sparkles looked like the dress belonged in a cocktail lounge. At least her shoulders were covered.

Another Barbara Tfank dress - she wore it to meet Kate Middleton. Quite the interesting comments in the article as to Michelle’s dress vs. how much better the Duchess looked in a much less costly dress. Middleton’s dress was 175 pounds and Mrs. Odrama’s dress 1400 pounds. Quite the difference!
