Why do they hate Michelle Obama?

And by “they” I mean her fashion team.
Look – some people think Mrs. Obama is beautiful; others think she closely resembles Whorf. Whatever. The fact is that she’s got a more toned body than most mothers in America, and the height that fashion designers love, to boot.
Why, then, does her fashion advisor stick her in god-awful medieval torso-choking belts like this?
Or ill-fitted, high-waisted, mis-shaping getups like this? (Note: that light blue is horrible with pumpkin. Try a deep rich navy or sapphire next time. Oh, and a bigger sweater. And put the waist at her, y’know, waist.)
But those fashion freaks really outside themselves this time. Check out Mrs. Obama’s dress that she wore for the Calderon’s state visit:
Well, the color is fabulous. And I love the shimmery fabric. The silver-banded waist sits nicely on her frame and makes her legs appear to be a gazillion miles long. So it’s beautiful! . . . except . . . hey, what’s that?
AUUGGGGHHHHHH!!! WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY?!?!?
My inner fashionista is writhing in agony. Why?? If they’d just made the two shoulders match — i.e. put the twisted strap on both sides — this would have been AWESOME.
Why does her fashion team hate her so???
Happy Friday, and beware of bad fashion advisors!
