The Cotillion ladies, my mom, a couple of friends and Larwyn’s list have been discussing Michelle Obama’s clothes from yesterday. So why not post about it?
(I’m not sure why Barack Obama wore white tie and tuxedo; I would have preferred if he wore white tie and tails, but it was a beautiful suit all the same.)
Here is what Michelle Obama wore last night:
It was just too young on her.
Neo-neocon didn’t like it, either.
Here’s what I would have worn instead: Carolina Herrera‘s coral gown:
The Herrera gown is made from a heavy textured Italian silk that drapes beautifully about the body. It emphasizes the torso without exposing too much cleavage. It fits smoothly across the back and the skirt is not gathered in the rear, so it has a slimming effect. The short train would still be OK for dancing, while the draped fabric in front allows for movement. Michelle Obama would look good in that color, or in a variety of other colors.
But here’s the important part: A dress cut like this makes a tall woman look like a Greek goddess. It’s a grown-up’s dress, and a tall woman would carry it to perfection.
On a tall woman, the Herrera dress is a sensational dress.
