Michelle Obama in Marchesa

Posted on March 15, 2012

Shelley goes for a little Hollywood-style glam and we’re about to get yelled at.

Because – and we’re sorry to have to say this –  First Lady, That is Not Your Dress.

It’s a gorgeous dress and the color really suits her, but the bust/neckline couldn’t possibly be any less-suited to her figure. Her chest looks like it’s collapsing. And the ten pounds of necklace only made it worse. We can understand why she wore a version with a much more toned-down skirt, but the loss of all that dramatic volume on the bottom makes the shape look awkward.
