I know: I can hardly believe it myself.
Michelle Obama's wardrobe has inspired a lot of breathless praise in the media, that Narciso Rodriguez fantase dans la clef d'Black Widow notwithstanding. However, not everyone is happy with her sartorial choices:
Isn't there something insulting about any group of people bawling like newly-weaned calves about the raiment of a woman who's only been First Lady for 7 blasted days? The mere fact that this group takes umbrage at MO's fashions seems to indicate they believe Michelle's husband-- at least in part-- is POTUS due to his racial makeup, and she should dance with the ones wot brung her. Ironic, much? I wonder if the Obamas take umbrage at such presumptuousness? They should do.
I am pleased that in recent days MO seems to be making style selections which are more classic and elegant in nature than at times prior to the inauguration. She will have many hundreds of formal appearances over the next 4 years. I have no doubt that sooner or later, she's probably going to don she then her gay apparel designed by just about every ethnic group.
Why should she be beholden to any group of designers? Why can't she wear what she likes, what fits her well and what she deems appropriate to the occasion? Why can't she choose her garments by the content of their couture and not by the color of the person whose name is on the label?
