Election night Fashion?

Politics aside - all I guess I can comment on that 'dress' that Michelle Obama selected for the Election Night acceptance speech is.....thanks for a wonderful new example of some extremely POOR design! TWO 'centers of interest' - and NOT in places that, I, as a lady, would want to draw attention. Besides that - TWO, not the design-wise 1 or 3, but 2!!!
For me, the ultimate thing I teach is that I want to wear the clothes, the goal being that the clothes flatter ME. THAT dress certainly 'wore' her, if you know what I mean. What did you see? Her or the dress? I saw - only that dress!!!

Ughhhhhhh..... and I'm not alone in my sentiments. I'm just hoping that she finds some new designers with some good training before she starts being my 'First Lady'.

Hey Londa - you know I thought that dress rather odd, too - cand not very becoming on her, who in my opinion has a great figure and with her height she could wear alot of great designers!

I kept wondering to myself 'what is the meaning behind the colors?' - I think the red and black signify something in her or her family's lives - what is so startling to me is that RED and BLACK are the two colors of rivalry gangs - and my son, who attended school in the inner city of Seattle for a short time, was terrified for years of wearing RED or BLACK...it was all a little too symbolic for me - let's wait till the inauguration! that is, if our President Elect can cough up his birth certificate which I certainly hope he can, in all fairness, so that we can rest assured he complies with the Constitution of the US!
