They both carry themselves so well. I think they could wear anything and look regal.

28. Photshopped

The right hand is missing, it should be poking out of the big pontoons on the left and right shoulder.

20. It's not at all stupid -- the point is that both outfits are so similar

The fabric, the belt, and the squarish shoulders of Michelle's coat, and even her hairstyle to a degree, are all an extremely close match to standard Romulan garb. The photoshopping may be crude, but the point is well taken.

15. Romulan

That's a Romulan. Both Klingons and Romulans would kill you for confusing the two.

17. No shoulderpads on the First Lady

The dress on the right is far too masculine.

21. When Obama did it in 2008, she gave a patented Michelle eyeroll

But now it seems like she's embraced her own inner nerd.

23. admittedly I wondered if Michelle was a klingon with that dress

 


it was so in your face, I could only think, aha Of course, she's endorsing klingon fashion.
But dammit, I love Michelle obama for that.. she's always been a trendsetter and let's face
it.. the damn star trek klingon tradition. it's a huge favorite amongst a certain geek contingent.

so far, I say as a for sure Star Trek Geek.. Michelle.. way to go... this was a bold move.. well worth the pink gloves..

YOU GO GIRL!!! ghIQ

27. i'm not that familiar with STar Trek but the outfit did have a certain futuristic sci fi type feel

to it. i liked it a lot. it was different enough without being showy and still a classic type look to it.

29. If Michelle Obama was a Klingon, Boehner woulda got more than an eyeroll.

And Michelle would be wearing orange gloves at her next Washington function.
