with all the fuss about sarah palin's recent wardrobe costs, i thought i'd mention michelle obama's abominable dress from election night. as a family, the obama's looked lovely together, but i really didnt like her choice of designer dress. its a modified rodriguez narciso dress from the spring 2009 collection (aka. not cheap).
i enjoy that michelle actively makes a statement with her fashion, and generally i like her sophisticated fashion sense. but this dress made my jaw drop, in a negative way. i was unpleasantly distracted by the frock-induced shock that interrupted the smile-glued-to-my-face moment. maybe her point was exactly to be as bold and unmistakable as the moment in history, in which case, she succeeded grandly. but still, i just didnt like it. it felt awkward. so i'd like to officially nominate a dynamic duo for the potential new positions of secretaries of style ;) haha!
