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.
On Tuesday, Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., revealed their budget plan to the world. I would say it was immediately met with complaints, but those complaints started before it was introduced. Is it perfect? Absolutely not. But are there other plans? No. Outside groups called for opposing it before they’d read it, Members of Congress said they’d vote against it before they knew what was in it. I’d like to take these people with me to buy lottery tickets since they seem to have some form of clairvoyance. I get the anger of conservatives, I’m right
Washington- American Airlines kicked off its freshly minted status as the world´s largest carrier Thursday with an aggressive order for $3.9 billion worth of regional jets from Brazil´s Embraer and Canada´s Bombardier. Three days after completing its merger with US Airways, the new American said it had inked deals to buy 30 CJR900 NextGen aircraft from Bombardier, and 60 Embraer E175s. Bombardier said its deal was worth $1.42 billion, while Embraer put a $2.5 billion value on its order. American also has options to buy an additional 40 CJR900s and 90 E175s. American said the 76-seat regional jets ordered will
Her sexy wardrobe (and racy reputation) have earned her the nickname ‘Gucci Helle’ in her native Denmark. It’s the kind of profile you would normally associate with, say, a footballer’s wife, or a model, not a prime minister. But then Danish leader Helle Thorning-Schmidt, 46, who dragged Barack Obama and David Cameron into that embarrassing ‘selfie’, is not a typical head of state, not by British standards anyway. How many premiers, for example, when heckled at a public meeting about their wardrobe would have replied bluntly: ‘We can’t all look like s***.’ Or boarded a military plane to wartorn Libya
Boy, that didn´t take long, did it? The Washington Post announced Wednesday that MSNBC´s Rachel Maddow would be writing a column for the paper once a month, and on Thursday, there was her first piece. Any guesses on the topic? Bashing George. W. Bush, of course. What would you expect from this unapologetic liberal shill? Titled "How George W. Bush Failed The GOP" - clever, isn´t she? - the piece rips the former President for not leaving behind members of his administration that have subsequently amounted to anything in the political arena:In the eight years of the George W. Bush
Following news that Maroon 5 frontman and People-anointed Sexiest Man Alive Adam Levine will be stumping for Healthcare.gov, National Review editor Jonah Goldberg figured there must be a couple of people who will be swooned into health care coverage by the scribe of “Moves Like Jagger.” “It might work at the margins,” Goldberg told Fox News. “I am sure there some truly unfortunate souls out there who think the lead singer from Maroon 5 is the guy to take health care advice from.” Goldberg said the bigger issue for the Obama administration was not getting young people to sign up
If there’s one off-the-cuff remark that will follow Chris Matthews for the rest of his career as a pundit, it has to be time time in 2008 when he said, in reference to a speech by then-candidate Barack Obama, “I felt this thrill going up my leg.” It’s the one line for which conservatives love to make fun of him most, and he knows it. During a Wednesday evening debate over divisions within the Republican Party, Matthews chose to voluntarily reference the infamous quote and defend the sentiment behind it. Republican strategist Steve Schmidt was denouncing the current state of
Obama is running from Obamacare to his zone of strength and core value: class warfare. Democrats are geniuses at playing on group identity. When I ask friends what principles lead them to vote Democrat, it is a hard question for them. After a baffled pause, I often hear this: "Republicans are the party of the rich." It is said as if that is all that needs to be said: not like me, exploiting people, bad for the country. Not my party. As the liberal Howard Dean says, many Republicans "have never made an honest living in their lives." Democrats have
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
President Obama’s job approval among American voters has dropped to negative territory with just 38 percent voicing their approval versus the 58 who says they disapprove, according to a national poll released Tuesday by the independent Quinnipiac University. That is one percent less than the 39% who said they approved of him in last month’s poll. The majority of the 2,692 registered voters the University in early December said that the president is not honest and trustworthy. When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?,” respondents gave Obama lackluster ratings
