Far be it from me to set myself up as a fashion plate. I've neither the breeding nor the bread for such a title. But if I may channel that liberal hate-fest of bad fashion, this is definitely a What Not To Wear moment for Mrs. Obama:
That pillowcase of a skirt, the over-heavy necklace, the too-tight pajama patterned cardigan, [oh ugh! update: the sweater is all shiny and glittery. In the daytime.] the clunky bracelet. OMG the hair. No, no, no. And yet the Media Monkeys (sue me) fawn over her choices as pragmatic. As in, proletariat, I guess. The French must be loving this.
I'll just sit here and wait for Suzette to chime in with the better snark. But, seriously, even I coulda dressed her better than that.
We may have rebelled against tyranny, but not against good fashion sense.
Oh, why doesn't the press just go ahead and propose?
