    Well, it’s better than what she wore to the Tucson Memorial…she looked ready for a 50’s sock hop…..I actually like this dress….she’s not all “misses”.

  • RickS

    Will you wingnuts please quit sniping at the First Yeti…er…Lady? It’s so uncivil.

  • Radegunda

    It’s probably deliberate. I bet she thinks it makes her look edgy or coquettish or something. And completely un-First-Ladylike. But what’s new?

    Give the Obama’s a chance. The rest of the world like them better then the Bushes. 100%

  • Ray

    That dress looks like the drapes in my dentists office.

  • Radegunda

    It seems unlikely that she could have been unaware that one side was hugging her upper arm. She may have seen pictures where models or Hollywood bimbos let their clothes fall off one shoulder, and thought, “Hey, I can do that.” But it’s totally inappropriate for the situation, and the dress wasn’t made for that kind of look.

  • regularguy

    I was thankful she’s not Janet Jackson. OTOH, Jackson would still be much better.

  • Gman

    #10 Why do you think that is? It would be like saying the rest of the NFL would rather see Aaron Rodgers backup play. Or The rest of the NBA would like to see Kobe’s backup play.

    Aaron, the First Lady is supposed to represent our country with dignity while she’s being pampered on the taxpayers’ money. We have every right to comment when she embarrasses us — as she usually does.

    This woman has absolutely the worst taste in clothes I’ve ever seen. All she wears are big pleated skirts whicch really give her that wide-load appearance.

    You would think for the number of assistants this woman has and the cost of the designer clothing that she wears that something, anything, would fit correctly. I have never once seen a picture of her where her clothing is correctly fitted.

    #10, they’ve had two years to dump on our country, tear it down, behave like vulgar narcissists and dictators, cynically participate in blaming their political “enemies” for a massacre (and the White House DID encourage it), etc., etc. They have fully earned our disgust.

    If “the rest of the world like [sic] them better,” so what? Let the rest of the world have them! We’d rather have a president who wants to make this country stronger, not drag it down. If you’re not aware that Obumme’s agenda is to take this country down a few notches, you’re not paying attention.

    I think the dress is supposed to look that way…I like it and think she is gorgeous…

  • Radegunda

    dredpiraterob,
    1. The back view of the dress makes it obvious that it isn’t supposed to be falling down.
    2. More importantly, our First Lady isn’t supposed to look so vulgar when she represents our country at a state dinner.
    3. Get your eyes checked.

  • Gman

    #24

    #10 is a typical liberal. They would rather have the rest of the world like us and fall apart than be great and have the rest of the world hate us.

    Why else do you think the rest of the world hates us or at least used t o hate us. Cause we were better than everyone else. Back to the sports analogy. Why does everyone except those in Boston hate the Patriots or why does everyone hate the Lakers? Cause they are always the top dogs and always win. Envy leads to hate. People naturally love to see the winners fail. That is why the rest of the world “loves” Chairman Obama. They all finally see the USA falling down to their level.

  • Granny

    Sorry dredpiraterob –

    The strap is not supposed to be falling off her shoulder like that. The time should have been taken to tailor that to her. Then look at the back view. See that roll of under-arm flab rolling over the top of the back of her dress? That is the mark of a dress that does not fit correctly.

    Wearing clothes that are improperly fitted is the difference between looking classy and looking cheap.

  • Radegunda

    Elli, it isn’t gossip. It’s comments on a photo. Don’t you know the difference?

    A lot of OUR resources went into that state dinner, where protocol is quite important, and FLOTUS embarrassed our country with her tackiness.

    #29 Exactly my feelings
    Besides the dress, there’s the fat hanging over the top in the back. And what is with that shawl/scarf she has on? It doesn’t even match the dress.

    __________

    That is because quite obviously the only factor she considers is cost of an item rather than fit and if she has anyone in her entourage that knows better, they apparently don’t dare to say a word. Proper fit can make a flour sack look good. Improper fit makes the most expensive garment in the world look like a trash bag.

    On top of that, she has a couple of figure problems. That strap is falling off her shoulder because her shoulders are not even – you can see that right in the pictures. The only solution to that is to tailor every single garment that involves straps. (I know – I’ve been sewing for 50 years and I have this same problem.) She also tends too wear things too tight, I suspect because she is squeezing herself into the largest size a designer makes.

    Now Laura Bush – she was a classy dresser. A First Lady to truly be proud of!

    Take a look at the “overflow” back fat on the photo of her from behind. That’s tacky. Don’t they own a mirror?

    And no, the strap ISN”T supposed to be slipping off. there are pictures of the original designer dress and the strap isn’t off the shoulder. That’s just Michell My Belle’s heavy touch.

    She really is an embarrassment. This kind of stuff happens all the time and all we hear from the lamestream media is what a fashion icon she is.

    Right.

  • Mari

    Oh yeah, one more thing. She is intent on showing too much skin all the time. All the time. What is up with that?

    Jackie O clone my ass.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Mari, I think they do it on purpose. Sort of “The Emperor’s New Clothes” thing, just to wallow in the knowledge that nobody will say jack squat. She often dresses worse than Bozo the Clown, and you can expect the fashion press to absolutely FAWN over her. She could wear Bjork’s infamous “swan” outfit and these sycophants in the press would all-of-a-sudden see that it’s the height of haute.

  • Suze

    Her cheeks and lips have grown a whole lot puffier lately. I’m thinking someone had some work done during the photo embargo in Hawaii. Those cheek implants look like they would hurt.

  • JustSaying

    Does she go to the “Ugly Dress Store” to purchase her frocks….another thumbs down!

  • Suze

    She goes to the Ugly Store with a tractor trailer. Spare no expense!

    Take a close look at those earrings.

  • olm

    Every single AP photo has it off her shoulder.
    If it is supposed to be that way the designer made a big mistake. It is not a bad dress if it were fitted properly.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Also, they like to spend our money. Lavishly. On anything at all.

    All a dress designer has to do is say, oh, the price will be, hmm, say, TEN THOUSAND, and they’ll immediately buy it. As long as the designer is Correct-Minded, or course — appropriately Green and supportive of “World Workers'”-type activist issues.

    Every few months she reappears with more cosmetic surgery, This time its the new cheek implants, and major botox..Jaw work as well. The nose was done a long time ago, lips seem to be evolving frequently. Yesterday, she was channeling Al Sharpton with a modified mullet, today she’s got a bushel of long ‘hair.’ I know some fairly high maintenance folks, but she takes it to a whole new level..In time, she will be the Black Joan Rivers.
    Why doesn’t she just get a butt reduction and lipo and get it over with ? That is the only thing that will make any improvement in this huge creature.

    A question: Is it possible that she’s very much aware of her appearance, and is presenting herself in such a manner as to purposefully antagonize people? I mean, with today’s fashion industry, how is it possible the she could willing look like someone dressed from the cast-offs of Value Village or the Salvation Army?

    If so, then who is she trying to antagonize? I can just hear the Welfare Mama’s screaming, “You go Girl!”, while everyone else just groans. Hmmmm… OR, am I applying more intelligence to the situation than she possesses?

    The left shoulder strap did not slip down. It was meant to be worn this way.

    If you look at the two straps, the one on her left shoulder is wider, and was designed to be worn on the side on the shoulder.

    ———————-
    If you don’t know what you’re talking about, please, do me a favor and don’t say anything.

    There is no such thing as a “Geisha girl”. There are no black pillows attached. And they certainly don’t wear dresses. What you seem to refer to is the bow of the obi (sash) of a kimono (usually a furisode) worn a maiko. Those bows are pretty damn big (and dressing a maiko takes help from at least one additional person.) A fully trained geisha doesn’t have such big bows on her obi anymore. Just like the make-up and hairstyle of a fully trained geisha is also significantly different and rather toned down compared to that of a maiko. Pillows are, at times used underneath, for all kinds of kimono worn by women, in order to add some additional support (though, from my experience it’s usually done by women who don’t wear any form of kimono very often, those who are used to don’t need this form of support.)

    A friend of mine can put on a two-layer furisode with obi in two minutes all by herself. She wears them rather often and she’s barely 25.

    Remember the photo of Obama checking if the shoes of emperor Akihito need some shining?

    http://www.swamppolitics.com/news/politics/blog/2009/11/14/Obama%20bows%20to%20emperor.jpg

    If you take the empress there, that’s a pretty classic ensemble. It’s perfect, of course, given her long experience and the staff responsible for it. But a trained geisha would look somewhat similar. Similar in that the kimono would have sleeves of the same length and the bow of the obi would be just like that, too. Colors would be different, but that depends on the season anyway. The colors of a maiko would be more gaudy, juvenile and brighter. Plus the sleeves would be longer.

    And while I’m at it.

    http://www2.pictures.gi.zimbio.com/Japanese+Emperor+Akihito+Turns+75+6AiCxjtv4JYl.jpg

    This is how it’s done properly. Slight bow, eye-contact, and that’s it.

    the dumming down of society goes beyond the schooling. there really is a slippery slope that takes you from one extreme to another when the guards of society are removed. there’s an air of finesse that’s missing today – Refinement and delicacy of performance, execution, or artisanship.
    Skillful, subtle handling of a situation; tactful, diplomatic maneuvering.
    A method of leading up to a tenace, as in bridge, in order to prevent an opponent from winning the trick with an intermediate card.

    I think dress looks spectacular. Obviously dress was designed to be off shoulder— Whether you like the look or not. I don’t care for the look, but I think she looks regal. It’s obvious that some peoples’ comments on this site reflect more their opinion about the First Lady than their actual opinion on the dress.

    The fact that we are all discussing whether or not the strap should be on or off her shoulder means it was (as usual) a poor fashion choice by the FFA.

    The way the material of the left strap is folded down in back (in the 3rd photo) makes it obvious that it is not intended to be worn off shoulder. It looks just like the other strap except Moo probably decided that wearing it off shoulder would be edgy. Instead, she

    I think Moo is still suffering from the after effects of the anesthesia for her plastic surgery (cheek implants) that she had in Hawaii. She looks and acts ridiculous. I do swear, the woman is on drugs.

    “She looks and acts ridiculous” how? What on earth are you talking about? Are you upset because a first lady is not just sitting quietly by her man and wearing boring stuffy suits and being quiet? What century are we living in?
    Leave it to a bunch of men to discuss a woman’s dress and fashion. You people are idiots.
    The dress is gorgeous. It is styled to be worn that way.
    Glad you guys have run out of things to criticize so you waste your breath commenting on a designer gown.
    Also, whoever said she is “out of touch” is ridiculous. It’s a state dinner. It’s black tie. On every other day she’s wearing normal Gap and I only wish she would wear more interesting things and show people its OKAY to not look like a frumpy mom.

  • getitright

    It’s not surprising that a bunch of red necks would be commenting on MO dress. She looks absolutely stunning in that dress. Jealously is a hell of a thing. Get over it and move on, Jackie O was nothing but a money grabbing whore. who was pale and had no class but of course you guys cannot see that becasue she is lily white.

  • Kathleen

    I am definitely not a fan of Michelle “my Bell”, but the gown was designed to have one shoulder bare. Let us not stoop to the same low belt comments as the left.

  • Offred

    It’s called an asymmetrical neckline. The tip-off is that the shoulder strap that slips down is wider than the shoulder strap that stays up. The straps are constructed differently. Part of the charm of a dropped strap in fashion is that it’s flirty, draws your eye, and offers a little drama: Will it or won’t it?

    If it sends a shiver up your leg to think that the strap may drop more and reveal something, that’s your warped psyche.

    The First Lady looked vibrant and beautiful, not matronly and hausfrau like most first ladies recently.

    How could I forget it? Burnett, walking down the stairs of “Tara,” wrapped in green velvet drapes, rod still attached and running the length of her shoulders, is one of the best moments in tv comedy history.

    A bit of trivia: Harvey Korman was unable to stifle his laughter in that scene because he didn’t know that Burnett would be wearing the drapes with the rod still attached.

  • Well, considering

    Considering that no one can decide if the strap should be up or down I think we can conclude that the dress doesn’t fit properly. If it did, there would be no fat climbing over the edge of the bodice and no confusion about where the straps are supposed to be. Even the strap that is over her shoulder looks unattractively loose in a handshake photo that is not shown here. The bodice is way too tight, so the straps are on their own and debate is opened about where they are supposed to be.

    People who have a life don’t have time to post comment on blogs, telling others who’ve left comments that they’d not leave those comments if they had a life. And what must be more curious than the looks of those who see how fugly the Fisrt Wookie is is what those who think she looks good must look like. I thought only Wookies find Wookies attractive. Are you all Wookies, too?

    Anyone who is criticizing Michelle Obama’s choice of the color red for her dress is ignorant of the extreme importance of color in Chinese culture. From Wikipedia, “Red, corresponding with fire, symbolizes good fortune and joy. Red is found everywhere during Chinese New Year and other holidays and family gatherings. A red envelope is a monetary gift which is given in Chinese society during holiday or special occasions. The red color of the packet symbolizes good luck. Red is strictly forbidden at funerals as it is a traditionally symbolic color of happiness.”

    So Michelle made the perfect choice in addressing China’s protocol and culture. It has nothing to do with being “Commie Red.”

    And I personally thought her dress was gorgeous 🙂 (except for the asymmetrical shoulder look).

  • LostGrrl

    Oh and anyone here complaining about her wearing “Commie Red” should be sure and note the color scheme for this web site, especially the flag waving at the bottom here ;o

    And those making personal comments might want to consider whether there’s any jealousy lurking below the surface…imho Michelle looks gorgeous in anything she wears (she appears to have lost quite a bit of weight since becoming First Lady two years ago.)

    Red was attached to Red China when I was a mere child, but it’s been owned outright by the American Right for at least the last 30 years. Consider the numerous Republican women who’ve worn red attire to state occasions; begin with Nancy Reagan who had her own “Nancy Reagan Red” shade going on back then. Now take a look at Michelle Bachmann’s recent couture. Bring up the millions of red ties worn by male Republican elected officials since the 1980s, in their desperate, toadying kissup efforts to emulate the ghost of Ronald Reagan and therefore tug upon the shorthairs and heartstrings of the American voter. It’s yours, Republicans, you own it, you’re stuck with it. One Obamadress can’t take that away from you.

  • Smarzeli

    Thank goodness the right-wing fashion police is out in full force. Michelle clearly lacked foresight here, she should have consulted the great Politically Correct list of banned colors before choosing a dress.

    Biggest problem with the dress? The state dinner was billed as “all-American” and she is wearing a British designer! What, she couldn’t find an American ugly helium ballon to wear?

    What is more offensive is her embroidered light-colored sweather over the cocktail party dress that she wore to the Arizona Memorial. The commentators kept mentioning that the Preisdent was taken back at the pep rally tone of the memorial, yet he let his wife show up with an outfit that everytime the cameras panned on the front row, your eye went to MO because of the light-colored sweater. She dresses to upstage the President and the event. It is childish, rude and pathetic.
