Michelle Obama in Michael Kors
FOUR MORE YEARS … of Shelley O dresses to talk about, darlings!
U.S. President Barack Obama stands on stage with first lady Michelle Obama after his victory speech on election night at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.
Which is good, because we weren’t looking forward to the series of shitstorms headed our way if we criticized Anne Romney’s style choices.
Once again, FLO demonstrates her style savvy: she wore this red brocade Michael Kors dress once before, to present the Medal of Honor to Staff Sergeant Salvatore Giunta in the East Room of the White House on November 16, 2010. She knows she would have been vilified if she walked out wearing some expensive new frock at a time like this. And both FLO and PO were smart: he’s wearing blue and she’s wearing red. That kind of stuff registers on a subconscious level; offering a picture of national unity (even if it’s not exactly accurate).
She looks great. The color and shape are fantastic on her and for once, we don’t even mind the cardigan. It works.
The girls look cute too. Was Malia cloned from one of Shelley’s cells or something? We’d call her FLO’s mini-me, except she’s not so mini anymore.
And please, guys. We’re begging you; don’t make us spend all day moderating the comments section. Keep the political rants out of the discussion. It was a very good night for gay people in this country. In fact, it was a historically good night for gay people; the most pro-gay election night ever. Don’t shit on that. And if you feel the need to shit on that, then criticize her dress if it makes you feel better.
