Michelle Obama: stay out of my wardrobe, Barack!

23 March 2009


She may live in the White House and her new transport is Air Force One, but sounds like there's still one thing in Michelle Obama's life we can relate to – her husband doesn't get her fashion. ‘Barack calls it my Star Trek belt,' Michelle said of a great metallic belt she's now just stopped wearing in her husband's presence, such is the ridicule she gets for it. (Our equivalent is ripped jeans, which are currently prompting the lovely phrase, ‘You look like something out of The Mummy'). We're betting the First Lady also uses that ‘God, this is so old' throwaway line quite a lot, too. ‘He's always asking: "Is that new? I haven't seen that before." It's like, Why don't you mind your own business? Solve world hunger. Get out of my closet.' And, it definitely sounds like Michelle's having to hide the credit card bills. ‘You didn't need any more shoes,' she teasingly imitated the President's words. ‘The shoes you had on yesterday were fine. Why can't you just wear that for the rest of the presidency?' Come on, Barack. We loved those Jimmy Choos too, but we need some new Michelle Obama fashion to obsess about. Like, on a daily basis.
