"Infotainment? What the hell are you talking about?"

The First Lady Dress-up Doll

There is a crisis in the Middle East, trouble with terrorism and the economy is in the gutter, but the main question on everyone's mind these days is, what else: What will Michelle Obama wear for the presidential inauguration in January?

Here are the proposals from 3 Paris-based designers: (the first design is my personal favorite)

Christian Lacroix
Marc Jacobs
Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel

    Hello. It's sad but it's true. We sometimes minds no-worth things. Anyway, what can we do? I kiss from Madrid. Nice blog.

    i love the second christian lacroix dress, although it'd probably be a tad bit too extreme.

    btw, i love your blog. its amazing. :)

    I think the last one (the white one) is acceptable...the third down seems a little devilish if you ask me.

    LOL! Thats true but it cant be
    helped, sometimes when things are so bad, a little distraction helps with

    All the designs are lovely but
    to be honest the last concept
    seems acceptable for her position.
    They are good day and evening

    There should probably be other things on the minds of the masses; but since you've brought it up, I like the first one.

    This is the first time in my twenty-three years on this planet that Marc Jacobs has disappointed me. Sigh. I suppose I like Christian Lacroix, but in fact I preferred Isabel Toledo's designs.

    me too! It looks so faded and summery. As if there was no winter in Jacobsland

    what exactly is an expat? i always think of the brits living in spain in hemmingway novels.

    cool blog, visit the alemanac anytime.

    my city was modeled to look like paris, unfortunately that's where the resemblance ends.

    Hey, I think the second and third one are good!

    I like the first Lacroix too...but really, she could show up in a burlap sack and look fabulous. And Lord knows we could use the distraction...

    Love the way you think...great blog. Will stick around if you don't got something to drink around here?.....

    Cedric - LOVE your blog. I just found it this morning and have read through most of the past posts. You have a phenomenol sense of personal style....don't change a thing.

    Do designers all wear special funhouse glasses that make people look twice as tall an absurdly thin?

    I agree with Sciencegirl. Those dresses look fine on those stylized drawings, but the real Michelle has a very large rear end.

    I am sure Madam Obama will be wearing an American designer for the inauguration. The Lacroix jacket is very nice, but it is going to be COLD in January! Better make the coat a long one.
