Michelle Obama Is Fierce…But…

Aug 20, 2009Fashion

Michelle Obama is fierce…but…not everything she wears works. Today’s New York Daily News did a pictorial on “Michelle’s Smashing Summer Style”. Now, I will be the first to say that Michelle is fierce…she has had quite a few sensational looks since entering the Vanity Fair International Best Dressed List. But like every other human, one can not be flawless 365 days out of the year. Unless you are Blaine Trump or Carolina Herrera. That said, since Michelle–prior to White House duties–was a working attorney mom, she definitely proved a great sense of style, considering lawyers are known for their fashion savvy. Either way, here some snap shots from the pictorial from Daily News (DN) of her smashing summer…which I know you will agree with me…are not even remotely smashing…rather…crashing and booming.

Here''s what I think: she shoudl be able to wear anoutfit as pedestrian as this as she schleps through Grand Canyon National Park, but edit your Smashing Summer nonsense to just her best looks...this surely not being one of them.

    Abe,you wrote in an earlier post that the point of getting dressed was to look your best,and I agree.The thing is,most people think they are going to look good BECAUSE they're wearing clothing that looks good on display or what have you,even if it doesn't fit or flatter their body type,unfortunately….
