Barack Obama: ‘I’m a little frumpy’

Barack Obama

Bless! He might be the most powerful person in the world, but spare a thought for Barack Obama. After all, it can't be easy being married to a fashion icon – especially when you're a self-confessed frump. ‘Yes, I'm a little frumpy,' the President told a TV presenter, after she teased him about the outdated, baggy Levi jeans he wore to play baseball last week. (Watch it here). ‘I hate to shop, those jeans are comfortable. For those of you who want your President to look great in his tight jeans, I'm sorry, I'm not the guy.' Until two years ago he owned just four suits, which he replaced only when they got ‘too shiny' to wear. So good job he's happy to let Michelle set the fashion pace at the White House. Maybe she should start with her husband's wardrobe... [Huffington Post]
