LOS ANGELES – "Honored to see First Lady Michelle Obama wearing our Spring 2013 dress at the final presidential debate," boasted the Twitter account of fashion label Thom Browne soon after Monday night's debate. Yet over at the Twitter account of OscarPRGirl, the official publicist for Oscar de la Renta, not a word was uttered about the fact that Ann Romney had donned a dark teal dress from the designer's collection. But that's nothing new.

FTA "And after Romney sported a Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress, the DVF team went as far as to distance themselves from Romney by reportedly claiming that they were unsure how she obtained the dress." Charming group of people.
#1, Target clothes on Honey Boo Boo's mom would look better than most of the outfits Mooch wears.
Who cares what this mean woman thinks? Michelle wears ugly and trashy clothes, and everything looks two sizes too small. Michelle is built like a linebacker, and she has no dignity, no class, and absolutely no common sense when it comes to her clothes. I am always so embarrassed to see Michelle out in public looking the say she does.
Michelle has a staff of 23, mostly to try to make her look good. And we are paying for it! Laura had a staff of 3 and always looked good to me and treated everyone with class and style. Ann will do the same.
Really, there's a simple solution to this, which is right down the Romney's alley. Ann should find small designers (nice people who are trying to make it big nationally) and have them make any special clothes she needs.
She would be setting trends (cause she already has a following), helping new designers get big-name recognition, AND supporting smaller businesses. Plus there's the added benefit of snubbing these snobs.
I would lay bets that there are already designers lining up to outfit Mrs. Romney and Mrs. Ryan when their husbands win this November (yes, I said when, not if). Some of those designers are speaking out of both sides of their mouths I assure you. But at the end of the day, they are businessmen/women and they want their designs seen. On another note, Mrs. Ryan wore a couple of dresses from Talbots at the RNC convention and the libs were furious when Talbots mentioned it on their FB page. I haven't seen any more entries on their FB page since.
She of the dyed dutch-boy bob is a sore loser. Vogue lost its relevance a long time ago.
Personally, I thought that grey and black lace number last night (with the bizarro bow broach at the neck) was totally out of place. Maybe for an evening at a nice restaurant or cocktails, but not for a debate. Didn't help her derriere, either, and once again demonstrated that MO's taste is in her mouth.
Wonder what she's going to do when the dresses aren't free?
Ann Romney wears Oscar de la Renta. And Alfred Fiandaca. Has for a long time. And she pays for them.
Mooch shills for all the wannabes and has killed off at least two of "her" sycophantic designers, one a woman in Chicago whose name already escapes me, and the other a designer for young things - Tracy Feith - whose casual Gidgety clothes she even wore to the National Cathedral. As the article states, Mooch will wear anything a designer sends her with a note of gratitude enclosed.
Hollie doesn't realize that most Americans want an elegant First Lady, not a clothes Clydesdale.
I'm sure Ann Romney is not losing one wink of sleep over this one. She buys almost exclusively off the rack (albeit many designer names), and couldn't care less what these boobs think. As others have said, she could wear a burlap flour sack and look simply ravishing.
Name one First lady in history besides Michele who boards Marine One in cut off shorts and flip flops? She has a huge butt, which lets be honest, is the main trait of black women. She hates our country, "all this for a damn flag" and gets coddled by the press and Hollywood. Afterall, we wouldn't want to OFFEND her would we. Go home Moochie, a real all American woman is about to send your wide load packing.
I think Ann Romney looks great in ANYTHING she wears. Best outfit to date was on the beach playing football last weekend - such a beautiful, healthy, normal AMERICAN-looking woman.
Anna Win. is just another Hollywood elitist liberal who regular Americans despise. I am amazed how these idiots cut off their nose to spite their face by losing potential customers by voicing your idiotic political hatred.
Hollie McKay is a young entertainment and pop culture reporterette from Australia who migrated to the US and Fox.
This piece is pure speculation piled on more speculation.
Thom Browne is a dreadful designer (go and find his designs at style.com) who would dress our men in tiny tight jackets and skinny capri pants that look as though they were bought in the boys department or shrunk in the laundry.
The dress Mooch wore was no exception. It made her already linebacker-dimensioned shoulders look larger, her unboobs look smaller and her ginormous butt look mammoth. The sweet little black bow at the back of the waistline directed us to that butt although it was hard to miss. The drab color on a very black woman was deadly.
(Cont'd) What naive young Hollie doesn't seem to know is that Ann Romney has been dressing herself from Oscar de la Renta and other designers as a matter of course. (Now stand back for the hits that she is elitist and out of touch!) Moochell never wore designer clothes until she began campaigning in 2007 and sought out Chicago boutique owner Ikram to shop for her and provide her with her wardrobe. We read reams about how these clothes flooded the White House, complete with shoes and accessories, jewelry, the works. Sometimes they sort of fit, sometimes they didn't, sometimes they were grossly inappropriate as the weird getup to visit Westminster Cathedral for a private guided tour by its dean. And the big red flowered bare cocktail dress for a posthumous Medal of Honor (daytime) ceremony. The list goes on and on.
Anna may be trying to wield some kind of influence, but I doubt that someone as big as Oscar de la Renta would buckle to it. He is a businessman.

Michelle thinks if she wears something that looks like lace she will appear to be small and feminine. The outfit she had on last night looked like a gray tee shirt with black lace trim. Unbecoming and not flattering at all. She looks like a desperate drag queen.
As the wife of a high-powered and wealthy businessman, Mrs. Romney has a style all her own and I daresay, she has her own design people who are more than EAGER to make her wardrobe exactly as she desires it. Those half-eaten Runway Snarks can stuff it!
Ann Romney's dress would have looked good on the Mooch if she could have had it properly altered to fit nicely. And Ann would have looked odd had she worn the bizarrely inappropriate dress that the Mooch wore last night. The difference is that Ann dresses the way her husband likes her to dress (and he seems to have excellent taste!), whereas the Mooch dresses to make other women jealous.
Liberals are meanspirited. Michelle Obama wears clothes too young for her. Did you see her on The View in a little girl's green frock that matched the sofa. Talk about stupid. Wonder who picked that out for her. She is trying to outdo Kate Middleton but it won't work. Her big rear end is hard to fit.
Just Googled her photo too. Wondered out loud why a woman 63 years old would wear her hair in that silly looking, childish cut and hubby said: "She's sixty-three; to hide the plastic surgery scars." (Behind her ears...)
OMG! That is exactly right! The English have a great descriptive term for women like Anna Wintour; they call them:
'Mutton dressed as lamb.'
And if I had ever bought that ridiculous, pointless magazine she edits (and please check my handle -and yes, its a magazine) I would quit buying it now. This woman is pathetic.
HAIFA, Israel – Bird-brained terrorists in Lebanon have taken a suspected Israeli spy into custody – an eagle that was outfitted with a transmitter that allowed conservationists to study the raptor’s migratory patterns. In the latest case of Muslim militants seeing a secret agent with wings and a beak, Iranian-backed Hezbollah forces are keeping the eagle under lock and key after it was found by hunters near the town of Ashkout, northeast of Beirut. The bird had a ring around its leg that bore the name ‘Tel Aviv University,’ written in English, as well as a receiver device attached, according to
Wal-Mart (WMT) stores in Springhill and Mansfield, La., saw a stampede and a shelf-clearing rush Saturday after a computer glitch for food stamp recipients led to benefit cards allowing unlimited purchases. Police were called as entire shelves were being cleared out, until the glitch was fixed and low-income residents using the cards were no longer allowed to make purchases.

Col. Bud Day, an Air Force fighter pilot who was shot down in the Vietnam War, imprisoned with John McCain in the notorious “Hanoi Hilton,” and defiantly endured more than five years of brutality without divulging sensitive information to his captors, earning him the Medal of Honor, died on Saturday in Shalimar, Fla. He was 88. His death was announced by his wife, Doris. Colonel Day was among America’s most highly decorated servicemen, having received nearly 70 medals and awards,
The 22 children who became ill Thursday after eating lunch at a San Diego school cafeteria made themselves sick on purpose as part of a game, school officials confirmed on Friday. According to San Diego Unified School District spokesman Jack Brandais, a group of students at Audubon Elementary School in the Lomita area were playing a game of “dare” in the cafeteria, urging one another to put different ingredients into their milk to see who could keep the milk down without vomiting. Brandais said the ingredients included hot sauce, salt, pepper, carrots and other vegetables being served at lunch.
Reuters reports Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano will resign today: The Los Angeles Times has more: Janet Napolitano, the U.S. secretary of Homeland Security and former governor of Arizona, is being named as the next president of the University of California system, in an unusual choice that brings a national-level politician to a position usually held by an academic. Her appointment also means the 10-campus system will be headed by a woman for the first time in its 145-year history.
HGTV viewers are expressing outrage after the network suggested they use American flags as table cloths for Fourth of July celebrations, calling offensive, un-American and an insult to the American military. “Using an American flag as a table cloth dishonors all Americans who love Old Glory – especially those who gave their lives defending it,” one viewer wrote. “No one dies for a table cloth.”
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — A Massachusetts police official say the brothers suspected of bombing the Boston Marathon before having shootouts with authorities didn´t have gun permits. Cambridge Police Commissioner Robert Haas tells The Associated Press in an interview Sunday that neither Tamerlan Tsarnaev (tsahr-NEYE´-ehv) nor his brother Dzhokhar had permission to carry firearms. He says it´s unclear whether either ever applied and the applications aren´t considered public records.
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
