Michelle Obama Inaugural Ball (fluff thread) - Page 2

post #21 of 68
I really liked both of her outfits yesterday (and I adored Malia and Sasha's coats). I do think her hair would have been lovely in a French twist or upsweep at the ball, but overall I agreed with her husband - she looked amazing!

I liked the gold daytime outfit, I really liked the gown. I agree in retropect her hair would have looked nice up. But I'm pretty critical of fashion and keep somewhat up to date on the trends, etc. and really felt for 2009, it was an appropriate, glamorous gown and it really did flatter her figure. I am happy for her and if she felt comfortable in it, that's all that matters.

Her evening gown was really gorgeous but I felt terrible for her watching her struggle with it each time they danced - the train really seemed to get in the way and Barack stepped on it more than once!

My girls were more excited hearing that Sacha and Malia were surprised at the end of a White House scavenger hunt by a visit by the Jonas Brothers - they must have been loving every minute of their first night in the White House!

Wow, I didn't hear about that! That is too cool. I'm really looking forward to getting glimpses of the girls now and then as they grow up in the White House. Dh and I were talking about it yesterday and we both wondered if they would have friends over to go bowling at their house and just hang out like kids do. I would love to be a fly on the wall as they get settled into their new home. But I hope for their sake they get as much privacy as possible.

I've seen three different photos, so I don't think it's due to the angle. . .

I thought it was really ugly.

Didn't like the dress much, period. But I also thought it didn't seem to suit her style at all. It looked like she had to borrow something from someone else with different tastes and just make something work on short notice.

The gown is not my favorite, but I still think she looked beautiful.
The color was flattering on her and it showed off her arms and shoulders. I didn't realize how buff she was!
I agree that her hair would have looked better in an updo with the formal gown.

I like the gown but wish it had sleeves.

I didn't like it. The one strap thing looks weird.

I thought she looked stunning at the inauguration.

I'm rather "meh" about the dress. It was pretty but not incredibly flattering. (Am I allowed to weigh in on this since I'm a Canadian? )

And thanks for the fluff thread. I'm having a crap night and it's nice to be distracted. I'm too knocked up to drink so reading fluff will have to do!

I think the dress is fine.

Personally, I did NOT like her evening gown.

However, her afternoon dress was beautiful!!!!!!!

Ugly.

My mom commented that the dress looked like the toilet paper dresses people make during those bridal shower games. I tend to agree. Hopefully in person it looked a little better. I think wearing her hair up might have improved the look.

I liked the single shoulder strap...but I have always been a fan of asymetrical things like that, plus I thought it emphasized her shoulders and made her look strong. I was also a fan of the dress she wore earlier, one of the nicest dresses I've seen that actually looked warm as well as fashionable.

It DID look warm! Dh and I were wondering if maybe the designer was clever/kind enough to put a down lining in the jacket part of the dress.

I also read she had a bulletproof vest under her day dress.

I wonder if her and Obama both were? Wouldn't it have looked more bulky?

Either way - I ~loved~ her daytime outfit. Loved it. The evening dress was also very pretty, but wow - loved the other one.

LOVED the gown and LOVEd the inaugural outfit, though I thought it wasn't the best outfit to wear outdoors with the wind gusting... the flyaway bow and flyaway coat didn't look polished, but it was stunning when it was laying like it should.

At least it wasn't another Narcisso Rodriguez hot mess. :

DH said that Obama was wearing a suit made from "bullet resistant" fabric. Woah!

I liked the dress well enough. I didn't see the other outfits. (I tend to get my news via radio ) Links?
