Fashion Nightmare

It's still too early to criticize our new president (awwww, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and wait to see what he does with his power), but I will take this opportunity to pick on little ol' Michelle Obama and THAT dress she was wearing on Tuesday night.

What was she thinking? No, really. She DOES look like a lava lamp. It's a Narcisco Rodriguez dress that comes from his September collection, and it's sad to say that she does not do that dress any favors by wearing it. In contrast, the model looks lovely in the same outfit which is why one really must dress for their body type. (And why models get paid to wear the clothes, not average people, even if it is normal people who will be wearing the clothes at the end of the day. That said, a dress whose price range lies between $1,000-8,000 is hardly something an average person would wear.)

You can read the New York Times article about that eyesore here.

There's also a slideshow that depicts some of her more winning fashion moments.
