I agree! I've enjoyed watching them dance since the first inauguration four years ago. There is no doubt that this is a couple who truly love each other...and that the Prez adores her.

well, this is going to head south quickly. Would she even be relevant if she wasn't the first lady?

that being said, it's generally best to bite your tongue if you don't have anything nice to say

Agreed! However, this site allows us to express our views and opinions on a given subject. So it is not personal and I don't think any of us on this forum know Michelle and we probably will never even meet her.

So - was Hilary "less" of a First LADY, because she wore pants suits?

A lady is a lady, regardless of what she is wearing.

Oy. Were you outraged when the First Lady dared to touch the Queens shoulder?

My OP addressed the effect of the dress. No comment on the woman, herself. I like her and Barack; voted and financially supported both elections. Even though the hair is off topic, I feel compelled to say that I think the bangs are great. It's just that my opinion was that the dress was unfortunate. I've never seen anything uncomplimentary about any of her other clothes, before or since. Let's consider an analogy - wide people shouldn't wear horizontal stripes; tall, skinny people probably shouldn't wear vertical stripes.

I think people should wear what they feel they look good in and what makes them happy and confident.

I'm sure I wear a lot of things that people don't like, but that's not my problem.

A body like hers can be very difficult to dress and at some point you just have to say 'eff it all' and do whatever you want. I'm 6'1 and people tell me ALL THE TIME that I shouldn't wear heels, or that I shouldn't wear shirts that go lower than my collarbone (I'm large busted) or that I shouldn't wear skirts above the knee.

You know what? I'll wear whatever I damn well please.

These two excerpts are contradictory.
The second excerpt is patently false for anyone but a hermit.

I would say a pear is wider at the bottom and narrower at the top. Also has a smaller waist in relationship to her hips. Many pears have small to average sized chests. But you can also be a busty pear. (this is me!)

Yes, Hillary's style of dressing is "no" style. I believe she wears pantsuits because her legs are not attractive and she also has wide hips; she badly needs a hair makeover these days. But she is looking more and more like the B**** she is. (She looked great in the 2008 campaign, and it was all downhill from there.)

Jackie Kennedy was pretty much skin and bones, way too thin, and her arms were not attractive in sleeveless outfits most of the time. But she obviously had great dressmakers and listened to them about her image. Well educated, and she fit the First Lady role beautifully -- while being married to a cheating ruthless Kennedy -- had to be difficult.

Poor Roslyn Carter always looked like she had just come in from picking peanuts on the farm. Klutzy, wrinkled, and had that deer in the headlights look most of the time, fawnin' ovah Jimmeee.... she always dressed like a "little girl".

Nancy Reagan wore too much red, tried to make it her "trademark"; but my goodness it was boring and she never looked "relaxed". Always ready for the right camera angle.

Laura Bush was and still is the consummate "lady" in how she dressed and her mannerisms; and always looked composed. Has a lot of class. Well educated, very intelligent, and was not born with a silver spoon in her mouth. Read her book, it's excellent.

I don't believe a lady is a "lady" regardless of what she is wearing. There are plenty of lady/females around who don't have a clue about actually being a lady, and weren't brought up to be one.

Not saying Michelle is not a lady, far from it. She's just klutzy looking, and doesn't seem to want to polish up her image; maybe has the wrong designers, makeup people, certainly needs a better hairdresser !


Every First Lady gets scrutinized, criticized, both by the public, the news media, magazines etc. Just because someone expresses an opinion or a suggestion, doesn't mean she isn't well liked. But they have a duty when in office to project a proper image in public.

No need to be so sensitive about Michelle, she is very smart and has her "path" all set up. She just needs to walk it a bit more gracefully.

There 'ya go; just spreading the love around ...
