The Other Obama Last Night

Written By , on June 4, 2008

Michelle Obama

We’re all about equal opportunity blogging so when Cindy McCain wears something worth mentioning we’ll mention it. But last night was not about Barack Obama. Last night was about Michelle Obama and that wonderfully, gorgeous dress. The woman was absolutely fierce and radiant last night and while we may have a bone to pick with Mr. Obama patting her rear when she got off the stage, we understand, it’s love. I digress. Everyone here is still trying to find out who designed that dress. If anyone knows, please drop a line. It was a sleek, form appreciating, light purple dress with a beautiful black belt and she accessorized with a low black heels. The woman knows style.

    I believe Alexander McQueen design the dress, or it is a dead ringer for one in his collection.

    You are too funny.. last night was not about Barack but about Michelle. I love this woman’s style! I’ve noticed she loves to wear belts. I’ve even bought myself a killa one since I started noticing her style.

    That dress is designed by a Maria in Chicago

    Agreed – that dress was hot and she has great style. I also liked your side remark about the rump smacking incident ;-)

    Per the New York Times article on June 9 “What grabbed the eye was the sleeveless purple silk crepe sheath made for Obama by Maria Pinto, the former Geoffrey Beene assistant who has long been an Obama favorite. Simple in silhouette and, at about $900 retail, not the kind of garment most working-class voters can reasonably aspire to, the dress was immediately subject to water cooler dissection.

    The belt Michelle Obama wore was another signature accessory, something Vanity Fair noted when adding her last year to its International Best-Dressed List. “That Azzedine Alaïa belt that she wore 15-plus months ago signified to me that this woman had an independent and strong and distinct fashion sense,” said Amy Fine Collins, a special correspondent at Vanity Fair and a guardian of the 68-year-old list.”
