Political Fab

While President Obama wowed Congress and the rest of the world with his first State of The Union style address last night, First Lady Michelle looked on in a fabulous Narciso Rodriguez plum blouse and pencil skirt.  Loved it. More pics and a clip of the speech when you read the rest... You would think our president was a rock star the way people were clamming at him afterward... Nice. And as for the First Lady: She sat in the "First lady box" in the balcony with 22 heroes from all over the country the First Couple invited to the speech. Very nice. She loves to bare her arms...and I can see why.
Here's a clip of President Obama speaking last night. And the First Lady is covering the upcoming issue of People magazine too: She wears the Tracy Reese Guipure Lace Kimono Dress in Dried Azalea throughout the feature story. And by the way, it retails for $395 and is available at the NY Tracy Reese boutique.

Sharron-- You, amd I am

Sharron-- You, amd I am assuming you are African American, are using the same sterotyping that white population uses in identifying blacks. Why do you assume that the name Marilyn is only a white name. Believe me I am black, and I really mean black. Again, broaden your horizons and stop validating a recent study that was done showing that people assume by your name that you are black. Also, I am not contradicting myself. I do believe Michelle should expand her horizons and not focus on clothes BUT I also said that there is an appropriate time and place for everything. There are lots of events and settings where Michelle could address her exploratory side--the State of the Union address wasn't one of them. And, yes, us blacks should focus a little more on the economy in order that they might speak as intelligently about the economy as they do about Stevie Wonder, dressing, booty, hairstyles, etc. As I stated in my earlier post, it is sad that We cannot have honest differences of opinions without being considered haters. I did not go off on those who liked what Michelle wore and her sense of direction, and it seems that people like you don't want to return the favor. All Blacks are not one dimensional and, again, I have no beef about Michelle but I reserve my right to comment whether I agree or disagree with comments on this board. Blacks should stop limiting themselves to have the same mind about everything. By the way, I wonder what part of the country you live in if you do not know any black Marilyn.

Marilyn (White)...Your words

Marilyn (White)...Your words contradict one another. In one statement you verbally berate Michelle for her "preferences" in attire and then implore us to expand our horizons and not focus on clothing...study up on the economy..right. Take "a" stance and stick with it. Marginalize yourself--you hater.

to the posters about Jackie

to the posters about Jackie O--that is precisely the point. she is trying too hard to emulate Jackie(it was very obvious during the campaign) and protraying it as her style. She is really no Jackie O and she really needs to be Michelle. Also, I,too,am getting tired of the same look with the sleeveless--even if they were appropriate for all occasions The other side of the population and most of the world has a set idea of Africans Americans, e.g., don't know how to dress for the occasion, culturally lacking, etc.;her knowledge of knowing how to dress for certain occasions shows a certain lack of class. All I'm saying is that she dresses nice but there is a time and place for everything. Maybe she should consult with a stylist or someone who is in the know abou such things. It seems that whenever there is an important occasion and she needs to step up to the plate, she fails. In my opinion, she did not dress well enough on nomination night, election night, inaugural night, etc. She is beautiful and the dresses she wore on those nights did not do her justice. AGAIN, I am African American and not a hater. Also, we as African Americans need to realize there are most important things going on which we should become knowledgeable about than clothes. That is another stereotype about Blacks--all we care about are clothes. We need to study up on the economy and what is happening because it isn't good.

Plus if Jackie Kennedy wore a sleeveless dress to her husband's State of the Union Address why can't Michelle do the same?

So what's next, people are

So what's next, people are going to ask her to hide her curves as well??? This is ridiculous. There is nothing wrong with a First Lady who is trying to maintain her identity by what she is wearing. People get caught up in rules that they become rigid and resistant to change. Michelle is being herself with sophistication. It's not like she is parading around in hoochie attire. I'd rather see her being herself than to be bogged down by rules on even how she should dress. As for this event, she had a jacket/sweater to go along with the dress and she decided to take it off. She felt comfortable taking it off. We should just let her be.

i agree that Michelle's arms

i agree that Michelle's arms are okay, but there is a time for everything and the night of the address was not the time for her to wear sleeveless in that weather. Okay, we get it, you work out but she must know(in fact she consciously set out to accomplish this) that the focus of the night would be on her outfit. She seems to be a attention seeker who needs validation from the public. By the way, I am African American and expect to be ridiculed for my comments. What Blacks need to realize that we do have differences of opinion and just because certain statements are made does not mean one is jealous, hating, or racist. As long as it is done respectfully, everyone should be able to respect others opinions. Lastly, Michelle needs to remember that she is representing the Nation and not just herself. She needs to be a little more aware of that and express her desire for individuality in other arenas. She's educated not she needs to become sophisicated and show that she can run with the big guys.

I love Michelle but I think

I love Michelle but I think her bare arms at a Congressional address were over the top and inappropriate. She could have worn a 3/4 length sleeve and maybe a plunging neckline and gotten the same effect while remaining on point. I think she's still trying to find herself in this role. Our First Lady will eventually get her style together, it's only been a month..... Love you Michelle and Barack, keep up the great work!!

Natasha, I love your site, and have been visiting almost daily to check out your commentaries since ‘05. I’ve voted for your blog in every web contest I can, because I believe in your hustle. Lately, there have been problems with your pages loading. So much so, that I eventually give up and move on. Like I said, I love your site, but the issues are preventing me from viewing the pages without frustration. I have also heard this complaint from 2 other friends who frequent YBF. I hope you are able to remedy the problems soon. Much Love to you Girl!!!!

I'ma need the first lady to

I'ma need the first lady to wear a 3/4 sleeve or long sleeve outfit from time to time. Her arms are fabulous but the same style dress is working me. I loves me some Michelle and it kills me to say anything negative, but I'ma need her to step up her fashion game. We're in an era where fashion rules and there are a host of designers to choose from and I need her to represent something new, fresh and different. She has the body and surely she has access to a variety of designers so what about changing it up. Personally, I haven't liked anything she's worn since they stepped into office. I LOVE them both and I guess she's doing her own thang, but in the highest office we need fashion representation. We haven't had a fashionable first lady since Jackie O and we had hoped Michelle was going to put it down, but I guess not. That Vogue spread with the same short sleeve style black dress was so not happening. I'm just sayin'

The First Lady has some GUNS

The First Lady has some GUNS on her! I agree with most of what has been blogged on this post thus far. I really didn't understand why Gov. Jindal keeps saying that we should not build a high speed rail system just because they want to build a line from Anaheim to Vegas?!? Doesn't he know how many permanent jobs that would create. We are one of the last developed nations on this planet NOT to have a nationwide high-speed rail system. Only India, the middle-east (Africa) and China do not have one (China is in the works to build one though). And BTW he has already has taken millions in aid (and is still asking for more), from the aftermath of Katrina. God hates a hippocrate.

My President and my First Lady are so fabulous. Obama is so eloquent and heartfelt when he speaks, it almost brings me to tears. It feels good to support my President for more reasons than his race. He truly is the best man for the job.
