How many homeless children could have been cared for by the cost of this dress? How many starving children could have been fed? This is excess to the extreme! Would this country not be a better place if all of the people posting to this admiring the first lady’s fashion statement instead took pity on the poor and destitute in the country? Certainly many would sleep a more peaceful sleep if they did. FOR SHAME!

Bonnie,

I think you are so off. I thought Michelle Obama had a sophisticated elegance to her in the Thom Browne coat. I thought she looked smashing and smart and I love her for promoting American designers. The silhouette of the coat is beautiful and the lines were gorgeous, topped with the glitz of the belt. I thought the whole outfit was spot-on appropriate and looked stunning on her.

I hope Thom Browne does brilliantly from the exposure, he deserves it.

Mrs. Obama always looks regal and elegant; we have not had such an impressive First Lady since Jackie Kennedy. Keep doing what you’re doing, Mrs. Obama!

You are way off the mark. Everyone was stunned by this sophisticated look–regal but not flashy. This isn’t Hollywood. If you want tacky glitz, look to the red carpet. This was a solemn occasion.

Colour doesn’t have to be blaring to be brilliant. Michelle’s coat cut choice of is flattering and elegant. While her office as the wife of the President is important, on the day of Obama being sworn in, the focus really should be on him. She was smart in keeping her look understated; it’s relatable AND sophisticated.
