Michelle Obama’s ‘Inappropriate’ Oscars Dress Gets Censored In Iran

For the first time in history, our First Lady made a televised appearance from the White House at the Oscars — and even presented an award. As always she was dressed to the nines and looked absolutely stunning, but not everyone was on the same page when it came to her outfit. Can you believe her dress was photoshopped in Iran to make it appear more modest?

Michelle Obama, 49, donned a shimmering Naeem Khan gown at the 85th Annual Academy Awards on Feb. 24. The fashion icon definitely stole the spotlight in the elegant piece, but  Iranian news agency Fars News certainly thought otherwise. Michelle’s picture was featured in various Oscars stories around the globe, but we were shocked to see that Fars News showed her wearing a totally different dress than she actually wore — one that didn’t even really exist.

Michelle’s dress featured glam silver straps that showed off her toned arms and a tasteful, angular neckline. But clearly, it wasn’t quite tasteful enough for Fars News. They Photoshopped the leading lady wearing a similar silver dress, but they added their own short sleeves and altered the neckline so that it came up way higher around her neck. While we thought it was kind of nervy to mess with the leading lady’s errorless style, U.S. officials say it’s totally common for the Iranian media to alter looks in order to make them appropriate for Iranian audiences.

Furthermore, the Iranian public was not happy with the film Argo produced by the Zionist company Warner Bros, for which Michelle presented the Best Picture Award, claiming it was an outright anti-Iranian film. All in all, it looks like they could’ve done without that entire portion of the evening.

The First Lady is probably used to the media changing the truth, but it’s not every day that they change your entire outfit! We think Michelle looked gorgeous and totally appropriate at the event, but what do you guys think? Was Fars News right for covering Michelle up a bit, or was it downright weird? VOTE and leave a comment to tell us what you think!

Yes, what she does affects us all in other countries, but what Ms. Obama fails to realize, is that the viewing audience is not used to wearing something so immodest. They are not used to seeing it, either.
Way too much skin showing for the viewers in that country.

This is very disturbing,Mrs.Obama should have never been part of the Oscars in this way,Our President and Wife should be more aware of this country’s very delicate relationship with this country and the lives of American’s. Good God The President and his wife job is to keep peace in our country with other countries. Something is really,really wrong.What she does affects Americans in other Country’s.
