Michelle Obama looks chic in Jason Wu... AGAIN! First Lady chooses sparkling crimson cocktail dress by trusted designer for President Obama´s State of the Union speech Daily Mail (UK), by Deborah Arthurs
They don´t call her the First Lady of Fashion for nothing. And last night, As Michelle Obama played host to honoured guests at her husband´s State of the Union address, she proved that she can do glamorous power dressing with the best of them. Wearing a shimmering crimson and black cocktail dress by Jason Wu, she looked every inch the perfect politician´s consort. Wu of course is one of Michelle´s most trusted designers. He not only designed the white gown she wore for her debut as First Lady at the President´s inaugural ball back in 2009,
I used to think she looked liked James Brown in a drag queen dress. However after seeing her with the wig on several times she now reminds me of an out cast from the Huli tribe from Papua New Guinea known for their ´wig hats´. Google ´Huli tribe´ for more info.
I feel sorry for the woman, I really do. Wookie face, basketball player arms, no decolletage to speak of, and her hips...well, bless her heart.
But its obvious the trailer park sensibility has never left this woman. I cant decide if the fashion designers are scared to tell her that her choices just. don´t. work. Or if they are incapable of finding a style that fits her...or if they are merely incompetent. Its a hard call.
As for myself, I´m taking a Downton Abbey perspective...
I always wonder who writes this stuff. Michelle has no sense of fashion whatsoever. That wig is hideous and out of place; her cocktail dress was inappropriate at the state of the union, and bare arms are horrid and shows she has no class at all. I am so embarrassed to say she is our first lady. Michelle has no class and no common sense.
Mooch looked like Geraldine last night. The dress was out of place. A business suit or conservative dress would be more appropriate. After all, the sotu isn´t about her. Poor taste IS about her. Actually I thought she looked silly. This wasn´t the prom Moochie girl, it was the sotu!!!!!!
isnt time for Mitch to tell us where she is going on the next vacation that she deserves...now that she and "hubby" will be installed as our pResident for life...it should be a biggie vacation destination..
It is obvious that Mrs. O has no sense of decorum. A cocktail dress is inappropriate attire for the SOTU. What next, a ball gown? I am sure that no one tells this woman anything negative including her husband. She is more in the vein of The Queen of Hearts than she is the First Lady. Off with their heads!
Mrs Obama with her bare arms is either ahead of all the other ladies present in the room fashion wise, or was out of place fashion wise. We will have wait until the gay fashion designers weigh in to find out.
It may have been the camera angle, but it sure looked like her wig was a little out of calibration with the front of her head. Then again maybe that´s the way it was designed to be.
Does all that really matter compared to what President Obama said he wants to do to America?
Let me be clear: are we paying for all of the stuff that makes her "stunning?" I am also stunned, but not in a polite and adoring way. I do not want to be told that she is keeping all of those ugly outfits, and the accessories , and jewelry, and shoes...and is more concerned with those things than just sitting down somewhere and being quietly seen from a distance. She is making a mockery of "First Lady" at least as I see that honor.
I´d wager her "stylist" fried her hair or skin and that´s why the banged wig. But those hair relaxer products are like crack. Addictive & dangerous. Her clothing style seems immature and misguided. Her facial expressions are very telling but no doubt she is still in grooming classes from Hollywood syncophants.
She´s a chic? Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha to the nth power. This middle line backer looked like an orangutan in a dress. We should all be thankful that she wasn´t sitting in a place where we had to look big oiled llegs she´s so fond of crossing any chance she gets. The woman is trailer trash and has the manners of a hog. But, I do thank her Just seeing her standing there with that lower lip pulled up enough to cover her six inch teeth gave me the last reason I needed to switch to watching Westminster and dogs one can enjoy watching.
Her dresses are like tents--small at the top (because she is flat-chested) to make it look like she is thin and flared out at the bottom to cover her hips and thighs. All we see are her sinewy arms and the bottom part of her legs. It is really a remarkable feat of camouflage.
Those who could not read the article: please do. The Mail is notorious for its tongue-in-cheek coverage of Michelle´s fashion "sense."
Putting on the glitz: The otherwise simple tweed dress was shot through with sparkling thread
The key to the TIC is the emphatic "otherwise." A "simple tweed dress" (with at least three-quarter sleeves, preferably a jacket) would have been entirely appropriate for the occasion. A woman with class would immediately wrinkle her nose and gasp, "Ruining a good tweed with sparkling thread??? Ugh! Woman´s only taste is when she´s stuffing her face."
"First Lady of Fashion" ??? Bwaaa haaa haaa haa haa LMAO!
The Media Toadies who swab her rump and sit in her lap are just as disgusting and hideous as her and Barry. GOD help us out of this UGLY mess we´re in with these two at the helm and the ass-press at their feet!!!Chewbacca the ugly mooch is an embarassment to this nation and everyone knows it! Wise up ass-press toadies!
My idea of class and elegance runs more to Downton Abbey too. After all, I find the increasingly tighter, shorter cocktail party attire on the FOX NEWS anchorettes ridiculous too. Mooch looked like she always does - hopelessly out of place.
Although the jobless rate in November fell to its lowest level since he took office, President Obama called on Republican lawmakers Saturday to spend tens of billions on unemployment benefits that are set to expire this month. “It shouldn’t be a partisan issue,” Mr. Obama said in his weekly address. But he said the “economic lifeline” is in jeopardy. “All because Republicans in this Congress — which is on track to be the most unproductive in history — have so far refused to extend it” Mr. Obama said. If Congress doesn’t act before lawmakers leave on their holiday break, about
Think all there is to say about the War on Christmas has already been said? Think again. With her trademark fearlessness and verve, Governor Sarah Palin’s new book, Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas, offers readers an impassioned, informative, and unapologetic defense of the sacredness of the season. “If I’m for Christmas, it’s only because I’m for Christ,” writes Gov. Palin. “There is no ultimate peace apart from Christ, and it is Christ who empowers every act of ‘goodwill toward men’ in our otherwise fallen hearts.” The book’s blending of personal experience with discussions of political
President Barack Obama said Saturday he believed the chances for a comprehensive nuclear agreement with Iran are 50-50 or worse, yet defended diplomacy as the best way to prevent Tehran from acquiring atomic weapons. During a question-and-answer session with a pro-Israel audience, Obama said he wasn´t naive about the odds for a successful final agreement between world powers and Iran next year, building on the recent six-month interim deal.(Snip) The president´s remark was somewhat startling. Obama has tried to allay the fears of many Israelis and some Americans that his administration last month promised to ease economic pressure too much
One in four applications for ObamaCare was botched during the process of forwarding the electronic files to insurers over the last two months, officials admitted Friday. The startling 25 percent error rate for October and November means that thousands who signed up on Healthcare.gov during that time could face problems when they try to use their new policies starting Jan. 1. The error rate fell to 10 percent this month, after repairs were made to the troubled Web site. But insurance-industry leaders are warning that the transmission situation is far from resolved. “The new process put in place this week is
Something bad has been in the water at Los Angeles International Airport for the last several weeks. With the city in the midst of a sweeping $2-billion transformation of the Tom Bradley International Terminal, airlines that use the facility´s old and new gates have been unable to replenish their aircraft with drinking water because of contamination in the building´s plumbing. According to airport emails obtained by The Times, the water is brown and contains high levels of bacteria and particles of copper, brass and rust. Officials have conducted a review to see if contamination has also surfaced in the water
Agents from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) are using Google Maps as part of their tool kit to audit taxpayers and organizations, The Daily Caller has learned. A redacted IRS letter dated Sept. 8, 2011 reveals that at least in one case the IRS’s examiners used photos of a property, obtained through Google Maps, as evidence to revoke the 501(c)(4) status of a homeowner’s association. “The road consists of a two-mile loop around the inside of the property. It goes not have any sidewalks or bicycle lanes. The examining agent printed and copied a map from Google Maps (www.google.com) into
MEMPHIS, Tenn.- After cold rain and winds lashed the Southwest and other parts of the country Friday, millions of residents hunkered down for icy conditions expected to last through the weekend as the cold snap was forecast to continue causing problems and trekking northeast. Face-stinging sleet, thick snow and blustery winds led to slick road conditions, school closures, power outages and event cancellations as the wintry blast dropped temperatures to freezing and below from Texas to Ohio to Tennessee on Friday. In California, four people died of hypothermia in the San Francisco Bay Area while
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
