Michele Obama in Boy. by Band of Outsiders.

Posted on June 07, 2012

Oh, Shelley. We do so love you for being the kind of edgy FLOTUS who wears a Band of Outsiders dress, but if you’d asked us ahead of time, we would have steered you away from this one.

 

The Associated Press interviews Michelle Obama to promote her new book, “American Grown.” Michelle Obama is wearing a dress by Boy. By Band of Outsiders.

Maybe some cute little city chick with an edge could get away with wearing a dress designed to look like it’s filthy, but we really don’t think any FLOTUS can pull it off. It’s too far outside the expectations of the role. And slapping a highly conventional belt and cardigan on this dress, pretty much ruined the effect anyway. It’s not the kind of dress you can make look more conventional by adding pieces. It’s a weird dress that needs to stand on its own – on someone who isn’t’ the First Lady.

But kudos for the attempt, FLO.
