It is a good thing Mr. Blackwell is dead, or Michelle Obama would end up on that dread Ten Worst List. The kids were adorable and dressed fitting for any princess in waiting.
Her attire today was deplorable, dumpy, frumpy, and in NO WAY high fashion.
If Michelle were doing the Red Carpet at the Oscars, she would be slaughtered for this dress. It looked like the Prom Queen dancing with the class dork. The Jason Wu, like Michelle Obama lacked any sort of grace or ladylike class. It was the dress of an upstart who had no earthly idea how to act in her new role as First Lady. The Isabel Toledo worn earlier in the day was frumpy, dumpy, and looked like it came out of a rag-bag.
“…Initial reaction to the dress was cool.
“It’s an inauguration, not a prom,” fashion personality and stylist Robert Verdi said. “I was expecting a different silhouette like a halter — and color.

As Michelle’s date, Urkel, would someone please show him what “White Tie” is?
