Michelle Obama, who turns 49 today, has proven her fashion savvy time and again since she was introduced as first lady in a yellow sheath and coat by Isabel Toledo on Inauguration Day 2009 - so much so that we don´t discuss it nearly as much as we used to. Four years ago, there was a daily barrage in the media: Jason Wu gown! J. Crew gloves! Jimmy Choo shoes! It remained that way for months and even years. There was the Naeem Khan beaded strapless gown for the first state dinner in the Obama White House,
Comments: This appears in the Daily Mail UK, thus, many pics.
I don´t care that it´s her birthday. I don´t care what she´s wearing. I don´t care about her ´´causes.´´ I do, however, care that she´s been so greedy and careless with taxpayer dollars to support her selfish lifestyle.
I have a problem with criticizing her for how she looks. I´m not a ravishing beauty either. But I do dress appropriately and my daughters make sure I don´t embarrass the family in any way. She does not represent the country well in any way.
WC Fields said it best once when a lady told him he was drunk he replied, "I may be drunk today, but tomorrow I will be sober, you on the other hand are ugly and will still be ugly tomorrow" moochell you are not pretty today and you will not be pretty tomorrow no matter how they wrap you up in supposedly stylish cloth.
Rarely does she dress appropriately for her "position." Most of the time her clothes look too small or too "young" for her. When she wears her belts up under her boobs it looks ridiculous. Style icon - definitely not! With substance - maybe so?!
Style? Style? I still think it will eventually come out that MO is a trans-gender. Pardon my bitterness, but the MSM determination to convince us that MO is the ideal of femininity has gotten to me. Enough!!
Mrs Obama is a comely woman - she is tall, not overweight. With top fashion designers (and without budget constraints) sewing her gowns to custom fit - she can and does pull off a striking figure (unlike the black widow spider outfit of her own choosing years ago!). So I will not criticize her for these things. What I find appalling is her tone deafness to the economic disasters unfolding all around the country as wrought by her and her husbands´ ideologies, the wanton spending sprees on vacations and evening gowns, travel and parties, so often paid by taxpayers - all the while wagging a finger and telling the populace it is too fat, too greedy and too selfish. That and the fawning media that gets the vapors and faints at her feet as if she has actually EVER accomplished an actual deed above and beyond wife and mother. Something we commoners have done for ages, and a far cry better.
I work for a department store and believe me, you can´t find anything she wears in my store. I never see anyone, no one, imitating her ´style´. It is just so ridiculous. I know what haute couture is and I know ready-to-wear and I have no idea where this ´great style´ comes from. Perhaps from her grandma´s closet circa 1955 and grandma was a hobbit...
THe fact that they are still peddling this stuff means that they know that she is in fact not all that lovely nor stylish. Keep trying to make people believe that what they see is not what they see but what the media is telling them what they see.
Oh just puke. 4 years more of this "style icon" and her hubby is going to finish off this country. just puke. I guess she will be a "style icon" as I am denied my medical treatment because I am to old.
...moochie has NO taste and NO fashion sense...when left to her wardrobe choices she looks like a homeless person...but our tax dollars pay for a 24/7 wardrobe specialist so idiots at AP can use lines like "icon with substance".

All that the pink Tracy Reese dress was missing was the half back shoulder pads.
MO flunks the style icon test. The image that comes to mind is of Mrs. Laura Bush in her feminine skirt suit, contrasted with MO in her too tight, seams nearly splitting pants suit, yapping on her cell phone while walking to the 9/11 memorial service in Pennsylvania a couple of years ago.
Saw MO at a U of Oregon graduation this past summer, and I found her pleasant enough. Surprise! She was doing her part there to keep her brother in a coaching job he was overdue to be fired from. Nevertheless, she isn´t one of us, and doesn´t want to represent the good women of America as much as root and loot and shower herself and him with glory and praise. If there was a boating accident, and they were swallowed by a whale, and never seen again, I might miss the kids.
The story going around that Rev. Wright picked her to be Obama´s beard may be true! It may suit them both. I´m amazed at how seldom you see them together--and at photo- ops they are usually leaning away from each other. Very telling.
But the most representative shot is of her coming off the plane looking like she just woke up with two strangers in the bed after a hard night with too many jugs of cheap red and some smoke that someone had to keep hitting with a lighter. Remember that one?
A "style icon with substance"? You mean substance abuse? Has the enemedia ass-press lost their minds? Are they all fawning drama queens now? Acting like little ten-year old girls? When she goes to sit down people run for shelter! She´s a chewbacca gorilla and you idiots in the ass-press know it!
"For the first time in my life I am proud of my country"......Yeah, well, thanks to you and Barry and the enemedia, I´m NOT!
BTW, that orange and tan Argyle sweater with the royal blue pants is the most hideous color combination I´ve ever seen. Sometimes I think that whoever is dressing her must be a Republican plant who is paid to make her look terrible.
65, you get a snifter clink! wIABB it is!!!! 40, Empress Alexandra and her sister, grand Duchess Elizabeth , were both very beautiful women by the standards of their day. Born into minor German nobility, they both married into the Russian Royal family. Both were martyred for their Orthodox Christian faith by atheist Communists. Im sure you meant to compare Moochie to some communist hag, not to Tsaritsa Alexandra, a devoted wife and mother to 5 children who also were brutally murdered with their parents. Communist propaganda against the Romanovs has been disproven in post-Communist Russia by its own archives. Seems they lied to the world but warehoused the truth. Truth has been the first casualty of the ØbaMugame regime. Sorry, but you touched a nerve.
Thanks AP. Because of you suck-ups I´ve had my good laugh for the day. Style icon with substance? Yes if you´re a Wookie/Klingon halfbreed. This ugh faced harridan is not I repeat not only ugly on the outside by the real pity is that she´s also ugly on the inside. I hate to break it to the Always Putrid and the other presstitutes but Mean Mo Green has the iconic style of Aunt Esther and the substance of hydrochloric acid.
Style icon? Lady? FLOTUS? Woman of substance? And who might this be...surely not the double ax handle wide sasquatch buff armed pushup babe who continues to embarrass America.
What a piece of trash article intended to escakate the effort to make Americans see this pig of a woman as something she isn´t, has never been, and can never be. I don´t care what they do to the edifice: Cheap is cheap. Classless is classless. And a lying grifter only gets more skilled. As for that lantern jaw and the six inch teeth...no ideas other than put a bag over her repulsive head.
NASA’s steady reconnaissance of Mars with the Curiosity rover has produced another major discovery: evidence of an ancient lake — with water that could plausibly be described as drinkable — that was part of a long-standing, wet environment that could have supported simple forms of life. Scientists have known that the young Mars was more Earthlike than the desert planet we see today, but this is the best evidence yet that Mars had swimming holes that stuck around for thousands or perhaps millions of years. (It would have been very chilly — bring a wet suit.) The findings were being
JOHANNESBURG — President Obama, his predecessor, and the woman who might be his successor crossed the Atlantic together Monday in an example of extended bipartisan togetherness to pay tribute to Nelson Mandela at a memorial service Tuesday. For more than 16 hours, Mr. Obama hosted former President George W. Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton aboard Air Force One — part of a global pilgrimage that is expected to bring as many as 100 world leaders to South Africa. (Snip) On board the presidential aircraft as it flew to South Africa, White House aides said Mr. Obama
Today Politico´s Dylan Byers got tough on MSNBC with two posts calling into question the channel´s journalistic credibility. Byers started the day by going after MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry for something she said over the weekend. Harris-Perry claimed Sunday that the term Obamacare was an attempt by white people to denigrate a black President. Byers pointed out that "Hillarycare" and "Reaganomics" seem like similar appellations and asked, in light of these, how "Obamacare" could be implicitly racist while the other terms are not. It´s not clear whether Harris-Perry responded to Byers´ challenge privately but she did not tweet (or anything
World leaders have gathered in Johannesburg to pay tribute to Nelson Mandela at a memorial service for the former president of South Africa, five days after he died at the age of 95. Barack Obama was pictured arriving after a 17-hour flight from Washington on board Air Force One, during which he rode with his wife Michelle, former President George W. Bush, Laura Bush, and Hillary Clinton. He has been given a prominent role in the memorial service for former South African president Nelson Mandela - but may face awkward moments if he comes face to face with controversial leaders
Jim Murray, an English writer and one of the world’s top whiskey critics, believes Scottish malt is no match for American whiskey. “Generally speaking, bourbon … has overtaken Scotch,” he said, according to the Telegraph. Mr. Murray, who wrote “Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible,” argues that Scotland’s decrease in quality whiskey is due to the use of sulphur candles to sanitize some barrels that have been used to age sherry, giving it a “bitter finish.” Bourbon, however, is aged in virgin oak casks, which do not require sulphur treatment, the Telegraph said. “The best whiskey is coming not from Scotland any
Brothers Tryon, 19, and Tyshaune Kincade, 18, were formally charged Monday in the shooting death of Sergent First Class Jim Vester, 32, after arranging to sell the 12-year military veteran an iPad on Wednesday. According to phone records released by the police, the Indianapolis father wanted to buy an iPad from the brothers as a Christmas present for his parents based off of their Craigslist ad. At 3:05pm, Vester texted: ´Can I get your address´. At 3:14pm, the suspects texted him to meet at 920 Wyckford Dr. Vester arrived at the address at 3:49pm and texted: ´are you here?´ and the
Andrea Elliott, in her NY Times article "Invisible Child," articulates the disheartening existence of a family living on the meager support of government welfare. She invites her readers to look through the eyes of Dasani, the family´s 11-year-old girl. The family has a complex relationship with the welfare programs that both keep them afloat and keep their situation hopeless. Liberals advocate that welfare programs are designed to help the least fortunate and that they demonstrate a society’s compassion. However, sometimes too much compassion by the state can devolve into what recovering drug addicts would call "enabling." Moreover, the "compassionate environment"
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
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
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
