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.)

What Michelle Is Really Thinking

The First Lady puts on a polite face in public. But you know behind closed doors, she’s talking some shit about Ann Romney’s horse and Mitt’s orange spray tan. Check out this new webseries by comedienne Issa Ray, of “Awkward Black Girl,” fame that imagines just what it is Michelle Obama is thinking … but can’t say. [Think Progress] Update: A reader has pointed out, correctly, that Issa Rae is not the star of this webseries, but the producer. Her leading lady is Yakira Chambers. My apologies to Ms. Chambers.

Michelle Obama Jimmy Kimmel
She Reveals Her Disguise!

Being the First Lady can’t be that bad of a gig: you have a personal chef, travel all over the world, and Beyoncé loves you. But as Michelle Obama explained last night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” the complete lack of privacy and anonymity warps your life … so much so that you actually start wanting to go to CVS and wait in line for three-quarters of an hour while the one employee rings everyone up.

Mrs. Obama, I go to CVS several times a month for toiletries and prescriptions. Do not even get me started on the CVS pharmacy. You are MORE than welcome to take my place in that badly managed hellhole. When can you start?!?!

  • Despicable human being Donald Trump announced yesterday he has something “bordering on gigantic” to reveal about President Obama. So let’s hear it: Douglass Kass, Trump’s fellow talking head on the talk show “Squawkbox,” claims on Twitter that Trump has divorce papers between Barack and Michelle Obama.  Kass tweeted, “High above the Alps my Gnome [sic] has heard that Donald Trump will announce that he has unearthed divorce papers between the Prez and his wife.” It has previously claimed that Michelle Obama considered divorcing Barack in 2000 in the early days of his political career, apparently because he was on the road a lot. But frankly, even if it is/was true, does anyone really care if the Obamas once considered divorcing? They seem pretty in love now.  [ONTD, Twitter.com/DougKass] Keep reading »

Fashion Face-Off: Michelle Obama Vs. Ann Romney

You’re probably sick to death of hearing about their husbands, but Ann Romney and Michelle Obama merit some attention, too. We’re not going to talk about their politics, but we are going to examine their wardrobes. In the past four years, Michelle’s risen to prominence as a fashion star, but Ann certainly is giving her a run for her money. After the jump, we size up the candidates’ wives sartorial chops.

Who Wore It Better?: The First Lady Faces Off Against Ann Romney

Now that we’ve gotten that silly town hall presidential debate out of the way, let’s discuss what’s really important: clothes! In a twist of fashion fate, First Lady Michelle Obama and Ann Romney both sported vibrant pink to last night’s event in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Egg went for a casual sheath style in a crepey fabric, which she paired with a chunky beaded teal necklace, while Michelle opted for a dressier look complete with matching jacket and a string of pearls. We have our own convictions about who came out on top (and who got shoved in a binder), but what say you?

It does my heart good to see women of all races embrace Michelle Obama. It is too rare indeed for a brown-skinned woman, a descendant of slaves, a product of Chicago’s South Side to be lauded on an international stage. Considering the heavy burden of stereotype still faced by black women, I cheer a little each time the First Lady gets some shine for her strength and smarts. But I note that in their eagerness to identify with Obama and make her emblematic of modern woman, some mainstream feminists unwittingly erase a key part of her identity–her blackness–and deny the experiences and histories of many African American women in the process.

How Barack And Michelle Obama Restored My Faith In Marriage

I want love to be comfortable yet scintillating and constantly evolving. Even if life’s not full of adrenaline-pumping surprises, I still crave a little adventure. And the butterflies should never die, just perhaps calm down a bit. And just when you think I’ve gotten outlandish with my demands… I want to have all of these things with my best friend.

I believe it exists. Back in 2007, when I really started paying attention to the black man running for president and his elegant, radiant partner, Michelle, I realized that I was more enamored with their interactions than with his take on the issues (I eventually researched those before I stepped into the voting booth, I promise). When it comes to their relationship, I’m still not sure what’s real and what’s projected by the media. But since reality is one’s own mental creation, I’m rocking with my observations. Read more…

Get The Look: Michelle Obama’s Awesome Blueish-Grey Nail Polish

And on a completely shallow note, Michelle Obama looked amazing in a Tracy Reese dress at last night’s Democratic National Convention — but it was her nail polish that caught my eye. Upon closer inspection — I couldn’t sleep, okay? — the polish appears to be a blue-ish grey color, possibly in tribute to the Democratic Party, but more likely just further proof that she’s naturally fierce in the style department. I’m not sure what brand/color she was wearing, but I found a few similar shades — check ‘em out, after the jump! Keep reading »
