Well Played: Michelle Obama Goes For The Gold

With apologies to Jackie O, I think Michelle Obama is the most stylish first lady this country has ever had, and her fashion choices just keep getting better. Case in point: the stunning Michael Kors gown she donned for the Kennedy Center Honors last night. With its glittering gold fabric and jeweled neckline, it’s a little edgy and totally elegant. This right here, folks, is an iconic fashion moment. Check out another pic of Mrs. O’s amazing dress after the jump! Keep reading »

Karl Lagerfeld Is Either Getting Progressively Weirder Or Just Screwing With Us

It is fairly common knowledge that getting older directly corresponds with getting weirder. Karl Lagerfeld was pretty fucking weird to begin with, but now, at 79, I think it’s safe to say that the longtime Chanel designer is the weirdest. The Kaiser may not consider himself a “political person,” but he did take some interest in this year’s presidential election (didn’t everyone?), even awaking early the following day in anticipation of the results. “Inspired” by the subject of President Obama, Karl celebrated the Democratic win in the way he knows best: by illustrating the POTUS in chef whites (using Shu Uemura makeup, because duh) bearing a cake in the shape of the White House. The handwritten caption reads, in German: “The Biggest Chef in the World: 10 X 5 Stars.” I’m sure there must be something to this metaphor, but it is 100 percent lost on me. [WWD via The Gloss]

The President Is Not Impressed

This might be one of the cutest photos of the president ever — here with Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney, both of them giving their very best “not impressed face.” We can only imagine all the things Obama might be not impressed with after this election season …

10 Things Obama Supporters Love About Tuesday’s Election

1. Our social media kicked your Super Pac’s ass. Sheldon Adelson, called by The New York Times, “the biggest single donor in political history” backed eight conservative Republican candidates through Super Pacs. None of them won. People have been wondering when America would have its social media driven “Arab Spring”? This was it.

2. Karl Rove’s $300 million extra super, ugly, horrible super bad day. Karl Rove has been a boil on the ass of the American political landscape since he first ushered George W. Bush into the White House in 2000. His smug Fox News-driven run of seemingly invincible political gutter dredging has finally come to an end. His American Crossroads Super Pac spent a lot of money and delivered a record-breaking bad return on investment. Read more…

  • This isn’t funny, per se. But The Frisky staff still laughed when we found out a 22-year-old woman who called President Obama the n-word on Facebook and then told a news station she would not mind if he got assassinated has been fired from her job … at Cold Stone Creamery. First of all, HOW DUMB IS THIS WOMAN. Who says that on camera? Second of all, I am very happy to hear that Cold Stone does not allow dumb racists to sing you songs while they scoop. That part gives me hope for humanity, at least. [New York Post]

Bam Gets Weepy With Gratitude

Oh, Lord, this made me cry. Yesterday, President Obama addressed his campaign staff at their Chicago headquarters in a very touching speech. It started with how impressed he is with them and the great things they are sure to accomplish in the future. But halfway through, the president’s voice wavers and tears start rolling down his cheeks. I love that our president is a man who isn’t afraid to show emotion in public. I dare you to watch this and not get a little teary! [Talking Points Memo]

It’s over.

For a while, I managed to hold it together. There was pie to eat and wine to drink and a couch to sink gratefully into. There were friends to laugh with and sigh with, dishes to clean up, and an 8am meeting on my calendar to shake my fist at. There were distractions galore.

Around midnight Tuesday night, when my friends trickled out of the apartment, yawning, and I was alone again, I stretched out on the couch for the long wait. I remember how I felt in 2008 watching Obama’s acceptance speech, and I wanted that feeling again. Keep reading »

Obama’s Girls Looked Gorgeous Last Night

Barack Obama came out on top in last night’s history-making election, and we couldn’t be happier (or more sedated — it takes a lot of Valium to get through that vote count). Of course, our president is the first to say that he’d never have gotten where he is without his girls behind him, and they certainly dress the part of the picturesque first family.

The sisters chose similar silhouettes, with high-waisted circle skirts, easy flats, and tucked-in tops, but Malia’s bold colorblocking in contrast to Sasha’s sweet bow-front blouse (and that gorgeous watercolor green skirt) flaunted their individual sartorial preferences. They both managed to channel a cool, contemporary vibe while still looking like, well, the president’s children. Michelle wore a streamlined oxblood Michael Kors dress which, if you’re a steadfast follower of the first lady’s style, may look familiar — she wore it a few times back in 2010. Mrs. Obama knows full well that fashion isn’t single-use-only, and that’s exactly why we love her. (Among, like, a million other reasons, but that’s one of them.)

  • You watched President Obama’s victory speech? Now it’s time for Key and Peele’s victory speech as Obama and his “anger translator” Luther.  A lot of us would be as enthusiastic as Luther right now if weren’t so goddamn tired after last night.

"The Best Is Yet To Come"

Considering I thought it was very possible that we might not know who won the election until this morning or even days from now, I guess I should be grateful that the thing that kept me up waaaaaay past my bedtime was waiting for Gov. Mitt Romney to deliver his concession speech and President Obama to give his victory speech. Watch President Obama’s passionate speech above, and check out Romney’s short but gracious speech after the jump.  Keep reading »
