  1. I guess this is one topic we do not agree on. WOW. I was knocked out of my seat and flipped about 5 times. What a gorgeous woman and what style!!!!

    A woman who isn’t afraid to wear color either. Love the inaugural color. She spoke loud and proud.

    Did I mention I was knocked over by this portrait? She’s more beautiful than Jackie Kennedy. I’m not one to be impressed by people’s looks much or people’s choice of fasion. In fact, I even tried ignoring the fashionista in Michelle, but alas, I had to give in and admit she wows me.

    Here’s a very interesting post about the symbolism of the official portrait. http://www.bagnewsnotes.com/2009/02/michelle-obamas-official-portrait.html#comments

  2. a icon to one is a joke to another. she can be a icon to many. does she fit in the skinny white fashion icon list no but i dont think she would want to.

  3. Saleema–You can’t see it here, but the post you link to points out that thomas Jefferson is looking over Mrs. Obama. No more Sally Hemmings.

    Bill–She does seem to chart her own course.

  4. I’ll admit too to following her clothes more closely than I’d like to, but since clothes are part of the way we communicate ourselves to the world, I suppose I can rationalize my interest. I like that she seems to enjoy fashion and doesn’t let it deter her from being a serious person. I think I’m a serious person and I think your wife is as well, and yet I truly enjoy reviewing and critiquing other people’s fashion with Laura. My one concern about this portrait is why the blue drapes seem to be growing out of her head.

  5. Maybe the drapes are the ghost of Mamie Eisenhower and are passing into Mrs. Obama’s head to take over her mind.
