Michelle O Is Honored as a Fashion Disaster

Share

Maybe I’m just unable to see the grace and poise and grandure of Michelle’s well toned arms and her perfection as a fashion disaster, but I sure can’t see how she is honored the world over for it, while Sarah Palin is considered someone to be derided.

THIS Is Fashion?
THIS Is Fashion?

Please, explain why Michelle O, wearer of this disaser is considered a “legend”.

“...Noting her “meteoric rise as a fashion icon,” CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg said Obama had “a unique look that balances the duality of her lives” in her roles as trusted adviser to her husband, President Barack Obama, and busy mother to their two daughters. Although she was missing from the crowd at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Obama’s presence was felt throughout the star-studded ceremony, which included Heidi Klum and Blake Lively, both wearing Michael Kors, and Bradley Cooper in a Calvin Klein suit. It took host Tracey Ullman less than two minutes in her opening monologue to mention the new first lady of fashion. As complimentary as she was, though, Ullman, a Brit, did say Obama shouldn’t have worn a cardigan to meet Queen Elizabeth II. Obama accepted her award via a pre-taped video speech. Wearing a crisp white button-down shirt and two strands of pearls, she honored fashion as an American “art form” with “ingenuity and craftsmanship that contribute so much to our economy and culture.”…”

  1. What is bizarre about von Furstenberg’s comments is the same thing that is bizarre about Tim Gunn calling MO a “fashion icon”—MO has broken every rule or advice both VF and TG have ever given on Project Runway (and TG on his own show). So I think they just aren’t exposed to MO’s styles on a regular basis. I actually sent the worst ever of MO’s getups, the one featured in this blog, and I don’t think I was the only one, because we’ve heard no more “MO, fashion icon” nonsense from him since that time.

    I am embarrased by her get-ups which sometimes approach clown-like proportions. Sometimes I can swear I faintly hear a caliope in the background as I gaze at another one of her clown coutre styles.

    It doesn’t seem like it would be a big deal to dress appropriately for a First Lady. Apparently for some women it is.
