We underestimate what fashion can say.

Make no mistake: Michelle Obama just made a bold political statement in Saudi Arabia - The Washington Post

I wouldn't be a bit surprised if that was done on purpose. They take so much into consideration when dressing heads of state (and their spouses) from kind of jewelry, designer, fabric, colors and clashing or matching or coordinating with furniture and/or carpets. They have pictures of all those things on file.

Mrs Obama had her arms covered and her legs covered and she was wearing a loose jacket, very nice and very conforming. I think the people on Facebook and Twitter are over reacting, most muslims are extremely easy going.

From what I've read it is not at all unusual for visiting non Muslin women to have bare heads. Laura Bush didn't cover up. But apparently Muslim world twitter was well...all a twitter about it.

LOL, they must be looking for something to "twitter" about. Seems like a non-event to me.
