3. At 45, I must be also. I thought I couldn't get past the argyle
but after looking at it, the argyle is secondary. It's the asymetrical halfs. Makes her look like she missed a button when getting ready for school in the morning.
I can see that fashion on Bush - because most likely he DID miss a button thru his Jim Beam-o-vision (isn't there actually a photo of him being misbuttoned?) I think she's classy, but this particular style was not. Didn't do her beauty justice in my opinion, though I absolutely love the aqua/teal dress underneath.
I guess sequins needed to be added to make the statement that it was a women's sweater, not a guys.
21. I think she deliberately dresses down sometimes so that she doesn't make
others a little uncomfortable. She could have really dressed up to go to the Opera,and would have been super stunningly beautiful, but that wouldn't necessarily have been conducive to being approachable.
27. Michelle's outfit is cute, but it's too casual.
She looks so great when she wears something structured and dramatic, like a great jacket. The outfit she wore getting off the plane yesterday (the yellow Jason Wu dress with black overcoat) was gorgeous.
28. Funny how so many don't like the cardigan. Could it be an age thing,maybe?
As I adore it.
And I want one.
I love the mixture of classic and cool.
And I love the dress, too.
It just goes to show from some of the comments upthread, that Mrs. Obama should ignore criticism and go with her own style, as you aren't going to please everyone all the time with what you wear. Not even a bunch of adoring Democrats!
