your husband becomes the first black president in the history of the united states and the first non-white head of state of any western country. so what do you wear? well, if you’re like michelle obama, who freely admitted to jay leno that she shops on the internet, you wear something that looks like it was purchased atross dress for less. unfortunately, it wasn’t. because then she would’ve had an excuse. it was actually by narcisco rodriguez, better known as the man who made The Dress for the late mrs. john f. kennedy jr.’s wedding.
the downside to all of this for her is that she will see images of this dress for the rest of her life. perhaps now we understand sarah palin and the rnc’s investment of 1% of their budget in hair and makeup and clothing for the vice presidential candidate.
