From Our Department of You Can Dress Her Up But You Can’t Take Her To A Tent:
In a display unprecedented for a first lady, World Famous Fashion Icon and Busy Mom™ Michelle Obama hunches forward and eats with her fingers at a White House state banquet. This is historic – no first lady has ever done this at a formal state dinner before. Moments later, she was seen hiding behind her hands attempting to avoid detection as she sucked food bits out of her teeth:
So … how’d I do with the MOO outfit prediction? Let’s take a look:
It was just as shiny as could be, wasn’t it? I was right about the simplicity of the gown and also about the presence of the wrap, but I had assumed it would actually be used to cover some of that flesh. What a disappointment to me that no tiara like thing was evident in her hairdo, but there certainly COULD have been something in there. We may never know. Her jewelry was indeed restrained as she limited herself to only two 5″ long earrings and 24 bracelets.
I can find no pictures of her footwear to determine if they were flats or heels, but evidently MOO has no qualms about towering over her guests. In fact, it seems quite a deliberate move on her part to not only tower on level ground but to take any measure possible to dwarf tiny dignitaries even further by forcing them to stand one step down.
All in all, the evening was a major success for our gal MOO. Here she is giving herself the partial Squint of Approval and the Prune Face of Delight.
And so my friends, the secret of the Little Eye is revealed. It’s not Little Eye at all – she’s winking with delight!
