    I think Michelle Obama looks awful in that, and I don't think she's the tiniest bit 'stately'. It's far too showy for an event hosted by ER. You think dropping £10k+ on a dress that's going to be worn once is stately? when the US is having so much financial trouble and has bizarre levels of poverty & crime for its level of wealth. Camilla Belle, on the other had, does look outstanding [​IMG]

    Do you think the US government would be paying for the dress or the obamas directly?

    Again, wow. That is a beautiful photograph. There is a very classic and elegant look about her.

    Wouldn't Ford be willing to dress the First Lady free of charge? I really doubt she had to pay the MSRP.

    I'm pretty sure she bought it off Spoo.

    Brooks Brothers, Presidents are almost exclusively dressed at the BB in downtown DC. Both Lincoln and Kennedy were killed in BB, if you go to DC and look at the jacked Lincoln was shot in you'll see the proof. They have the mirror he was fitted in, in the DC BB. I believe every president since Lincoln aside from FDR wore BB and J & M. It makes sense, a traditional American clothing maker, steeped in American history, and not overly expensive or liberal. Imagine the criticism he'd get if he wore Armani or Burburry. He was inaugurated in all brand new BB stuff.

    And if they didn't, I think the cost would be out of pocket. The President has to pay for his own food too.

    She probably did get it free of charge, but that doesn't make a difference. TF is a brand about displaying your wealth with confidence & flair. That's not appropriate for her position. Barack's speeches on change and greater fairness are completely incongruous with his wife's dressing in uber expensive fashion brands (she wear's $600 trainers, too). (Also, see andrew96's post no. 18 on why Barack isn't wearing TF.)
