Michelle is pretty and always looked well in public, I think had her clothing choices been different she could have really popped with pizzazz

I don't like the way Michelle Obama was treated for her looks. There was a certain meanness. I didn't care for her fashions either. I thought there have been a lot of misses with her clothing. Her fashion gurus needed to dress the body she had. I didn't like a lot of her skirts because they weren't appropriate for her body. They made her hips look bigger.

We may see different designers come to the forefront, or Melania may make other fashion choices.
Within their rights, yes. Rather like my right to denounce such a statement as cheap, petty and unprofessional.

If ever there were a tempest in a thimble, this is it. Why even bother grunting about it?

Because she is asking other designers to do the same.

Oh boohoo to that designer, I doubt Melania even cares. She can afford to buy and wear whatever she wants, anyway. Does this designer not realize Melania is already wearing designer clothes?

She's really not all that young. And I don't honestly know about the "polished and sophisticated" part. Is she? I know she was an Eastern European model who married the The Donald right as The Apprentice began, and became a US citizen in her mid-30's. What else do we know? She has a kid named Barron.

I like her style. It's more "my style" than is Michelle Obama's (athough I liked her style on her--I think she looked great all the time.) But, IMO, Melania's career, her choice of flashy unsophisticated spouse, and her kid's name would all be marks against "polished and sophisticated"

Jackie was only 31 when she became First Lady. 31! Melania is 46. Michelle Obama was 44. Nancy Reagan was 59.
