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.
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.”…”
