Living In A World Without Ted Kennedy

A few follow-up thoughts:

I was just joking when I said that World Famous Fashion Icon and Busy Mom™ Michelle Obama was going to wear her pope dress to the funeral, but son of a gun if she didn’t do just that. It’s actually a blouse and skirt. You can see that she’s wearing a different skirt than she wore at the pope meeting – probably didn’t have enough room in the steamer trunks then for her bustle. So glad she got a chance to wear it yesterday.


She likes to wear a big bow on her chest. Observe:

Now can I just ask what is up with Hillary’s hairdo? I know it was raining but we’ve seen countless pictures of her in all types of weather conditions over the years and she never looked like this. This is the same flat, non-styled thing she had going on when she snapped at that African student last month. Did somebody cut the hairdresser out of the State Department budget? I’m looking at you, Barry. I know you two have had your differences in the past but that was low.

Also, who among us does not love to watch MO bang her head on the airplane door over and over again?

She fell asleep during Ted’s funeral service but I can’t find any video of that yet. Check out this photo – no little eye.


Her little eye appears when she’s tired, and although she looks generally ragged, both eyes are the same size. She banged that coconut pretty hard so I’m thinking concussion. That would account for her droopiness. It will be interesting to watch Mo’s visibility over the next few days. Let’s see if they keep her under wraps during her recovery. 

Dear Michelle,

Even though the media keeps calling you “young”, you’re not exactly a spring chicken. You’re what – 45 now? Unless you’re planning on living past 110, that puts you on the downhill side. Here’s a tip – if Barry comes a-knockin’ on your bedroom door DON’T LET HIM IN. I think you’ve heard enough about what happens to the olds when they need medical treatment. I tried to tell Ted Kennedy the same thing but he didn’t listen and you know how that turned out.



Fondly, Suzette

  1. One other Big Bow Blouse sighting. One reason why she looked overstuffed in the Alaia biker jacket she wore in Paris during her walkabout with Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. Here you will see a bit of it peeking out above a print something or other and yet another belt – under the fitted jacket. Oy.

    If you doubt me have a look at the neckline folded detail here.

    The tent-shaped cotton blouse and all the other gear she had on made for a very overstuffed silhouette from the back as well:

    Am I the only one here who is old enough to remember Vogue magazine’s feature “FV = Fashion Victim” which ran for years. Man on the street photos of messes like MO wears all the time.
    FV, not Fashion Icon.

  2. Lulu…Re the 3rd photo: Are those pants suppose to mold to her butt crack like that or has she perhaps had one too many Kobe beef hamburgers lately?

  3. Cipes, Suzette, a friend from a fellow fashion snark fest sent me your way, and I’m falling out of my chair laughing. I had looked in vain for a still shot of that remarkable breast bow, so props to you. Didn’t realize Busy Mom apparently has almost as many bows as argyle sweaters. In response to your “What is this?,” it wouldn’t surprise me if FLOUTS were bebowed in the rear as well as the front for the love-in.

  4. Lulu:
    If folks triple click to select the URL line, the copy function will pick up both the visible and the truncated part of the link for pasting. At least it works that way on a Mac. If you want to try your hand at making a live link, I once put up a Hot Links Cheat Sheet to give some pals a hand.
    I’m delighted to find that the universe of folks with working fashion meters is larger than I thought!

  5. Seriously… Michelle’s butt grows larger with each picture. Or she just doesn’t know how to choose clothing, in which case we are soul sisters. [Oops. Nothing racial implied!]
    Whatever, but Jackie O would never have donned a frock that made her butt look like that. Never, ever.
