NBC News White House producer Shawna Thomas was certainly wowed by the dress Michelle Obama wore to Tuesday’s state dinner honoring French President Francois Hollande.

We got that impression. But “bow down”?

Here’s a photo of the dress.

Thomas wasn’t the only one blown away by the first lady’s dress, also known as THE DRESS.

Looks pricey.

Update: Thomas has reconsidered her original tweet.

  • Elizabeth

    She looks more like Oprah every day.

    • jkpalmdale

      When I first saw it, I did not have my glasses on and I thought it was Oprah

      • Bill Gryan

        At this point, what difference does it make?

        • jkpalmdale

          Excellent point

      • Ms. Abigail van Beagle

        “Your mouth to God’s ears”

          “Your frying pan to my mouth.”

        • truthisliberty

          The obamas are shameless and are doing evil in God’s eye’s. They DON’T have God’s ear, until they repent.

      • Eric_Mc

        Thanks for that. Until I read these comments, I thought it was just my jaundiced view of Michelle. Or is it Oprah I’m sick of seeing and hearing?

        • jkpalmdale

          Nah they are so overexposed you see them everywhere. Just wait til Moochies picture is up at every Subway restaurant

        • badsanta2

          try both closer to the truth

    • screen_name_already_taken

      Just was thinking that..

    • conservachick

      am i the only one who thinks that dress is fugly as all hell? it isnt very flatteri….. who am i kidding. what is there to fatter.

      • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

        Top and bottom look mismatched as hell. Also, the skirt is exactly the same color Houston PD used to paint their cruisers.

      • texastommy

        It’s the only tent she could find that would cover her ass. But, it’s becoming. WHAT it’s becoming, I don’t know.

        • thohan


          • Steve H

            Ba dum bump!! :-)

          • you can’t win

            If you think that’s funny just wait until President Hollande goes to bed tonight and discovers one of the drapes missing from The Clinton Bedroom.

      • Marcy Cook

        You are not alone. It is very matronly. And the big bustle in the back is kind of redundant. The a** was big enough without the extra fabric.

      • Jimbo

        IMHO anything that covers her big fat transvestite ass, is a good thing. However, a tarp from Harbor Freight would have worked as well, and saved us taxpayers a lot of money. They should have used KFC to cater the event. It’s not like they’re gourmands or anything.

      • Bob Young

        The more she covers up the better. I recommend a basic burka for her. Its cheap, and reduces the need for 5 staff members to think about moochelle’s wardrobe. An added benefit is we won’t need to look at her face anymore.

        • Tina Paegelow

          She could’ve been wearing a burka and the media would still say OMG! THE DRESS!! SWOON! Its sickening.

      • Eliza

        she looks like she is wearing one of those bussels, the ones they wore in olden days to make your a$$ look bigger. Just think she doesn’t even need one. She needs to slap the crap out of her designer.

      • ChickeePoo22

        perhaps one of the f-ugliest dresses ev’a

      • Lisa Wiese

        My thoughts too, and is she starting to look a little Portly??

      • Worship Dancer

        nope – it looks like crap – not HOLY but the OTHER kind.

    • jabberwocky

      So does her ass

      • calvin

        Her arse has its own zip code, why it may even be one the 57 states O-lame-O visited before the elections

        • Jimbo

          The great state of Fa-tush.

    • Pam Carnemolla Dihmes

      yes she does hair and all!

    • disqus_ilCip1xSFg

      She looks like Aunt Esther every day.

    • doowleb

      At least the dresses Sarah Palin was excoriated for by the left, looked good.
      The dress FLOTUS is wearing looks like a bridesmaid nightmare forced on her by a vindictive bride.
      I guess the evil dresses worn by Mrs Romney, don’t equate when worn by a latte liberal socialist.

  • traffic_robot

    Sorry, that looks my broke down prom dress circa 1990. Color me unimpressed.

    • Adam Wood

      I am certainly no fashion guru. Not by a long shot. But this is EXACTLY what I thought when I first saw that picture. Immediately followed by “you could probably make that with $25 worth of stuff from Michael’s.”

      Now, I’m not the least bit opposed to people making creative, attractive dresses out of what they can get for relatively little money, but I have a big problem with paying five figures for a two-figure dress on the taxpayers’ nickel.

      • blder

        You understand she probably did not purchase this dress, right? Designers usually provide these dresses in order to get exposure and be seen on high-profile individuals.

        • Adam Wood

          Yes, yes, the apologists keep spouting this hollow talking point. EVEN IF that were true (and I highly doubt it), Michele did that designer no favors, and it is STILL a case of staggeringly bad optics (hardly surprising coming from the bunch of arrogant pricks in the White House these days) as well as an astoundingly obvious double-standard on the part of the media and the Left (but I’m repeating myself).

          • blder

            It is almost certainly true. This is what happens on red carpets all the time.

            Anyway, how is this a double standard? Both sides do this stupid, whiny stuff all the time. Don’t act like the right is somehow above trying to score petty points.

      • Bri Fi

        Who said anything about the taxpayer’s money? They were well off before the presidency, they can afford it; if she even bought it at all. I know that’s a bitter pill to swallow for some, the Obamas being more successful, intelligent and classy than anyone on this site by a mile; and as you said you are no expert on fashion and neither am I. The reaction online seems to be pretty much divided straight down party lines, it wowed everyone that doesn’t hate her already so I highly doubt anybody actually cares about the fashion itself, just a chance for small minded people to jump down the Obama’s throats at any opportunity. Personally there are way more important things to be discussing and way more respectable sites to be doing it on, good day.

    • chewydog

      I think Michelles been stealing the White House drapes again…

      • Clete Torres

        Saw it in the window and just had to have it…

        • southernlights


        • thohan

          Folks, we have a winner.

          • Eliza


        • Bob Young

          Carol knew it was a joke. Moochelle doesn’t realize she is the joke. Of course she is laughing at us as she pisses away the taxpayer money.

        • jtak101

          Except that Carol Burnett only had to use one drape to cover her butt..michelle cleared out 3 rooms.

    • nopatiencew

      Yes, I thought she was economizing by wearing her prom dress. I didn’t realize that it was made from that same magic cloth that was used to make The Emperor’s New Clothes.

  • BoscoBolt

    It’s very tent-like and tremendously unflattering on her. She looks MASSIVE.

    • thedumbblonde

      It’s a haute couture, bespoke (obviously) version of her everyday wear. Three-quarter length sleeves over a snug bodice, high-wide waist band, full skirt. Meh.

      • H50 ✓RAT

        I love empire bodices. They emphasize your assets and cover a multitude of sins further south.

        • thedumbblonde

          When you’re built like me: Short waist, narrow hips and long legs, you look like unmitigated sh*t. It doesn’t do the FLOTUS any favors either. What a waste…Carolina does such lovely things usually. Maybe if the skirt was in something more delicate?

          • H50 ✓RAT

            Im a little more …. how shall I put it? Rubenesque? I got me some curves.
            I think your right about the skirt tho, maybe in a lighter fabric it would drape better. Its really stiff.

          • thedumbblonde

            She’s looked better, but sadly she loves that silhouette.

          • Marla Hughes

            It’s got too much fabric period. All of that fabric can’t help but make anything it’s draped over look bigger. Including her over large back end. The top is gorgeous. Now imagine it extended into an entire dress with that gorgeous blue as a bandolier or accents such as a wide belt on an empire waist, side accents or ANYTHING else that doesn’t cut her in half, looking like a huge blue tent covering her posterior.

          • sam michaels

            If Laura Bush wore anything that fu***** silly, the libs would have had a field day.

          • DC is Evil

            Maybe if the skirt was ON something more delicate.

            There, fixed it for you.

          • thedumbblonde

            not bad…

          • carmenta

            she looks like a ship in full sail …

          • Al’s Annoyed Grandpa

            I don’t like the cut of her jib.

          • thedumbblonde

            That’s no jib.

          • Al’s Annoyed Grandpa

            True, but thanks for spoiling my little play on words! >:(

          • righteousreverenddynamite

            Any chance Carolina is a closet conservative?
            Or maybe flotus’s stylist is passive-aggressive?

          • dba_vagabond_trader

            And a lot less of it!

          • BarfromLV

            I always wonder why women who have unlimited budget and lots of people to advise them on fashion, why do they show up with something so unflattering? The rest of us have excuses — it was all we can afford. We bought it and now we can’t return it! We made it and now we’re stuck with a bomb! Can’t you return a $10,000 dress if it looks bad on you?

        • Ms. Abigail van Beagle

          Not so much when the lighter color is on the bottom. For a pear shape, you do better to put the darker color on the bottom.

        • monamurray

          I really didn’t need to see a 50 year old first lady’s cleavage.

        • sam michaels

          KFC is further south.

        • ImNoDhimmi

          You mean like this?

          • H50 ✓RAT

            No, there is no straight drop. This one was taken in at the waist and emphasized her hips. I dont know what the heck was going on with the crotch area, dont want to either.

          • ImNoDhimmi

            Actually I was responding to your remark about “covering a multitude of sins”.

          • H50 ✓RAT

            So was I. Generally an empire bodice is high under the breasts with a straight drop (a line) skirt. This is not a straight drop, it is tapered and hides nothing.

        • Donald Smith

          Hoist the sail and cover the stern!

        • porkchop6209

          Hey girl, if I could send you a picture, it would be all white, and deep. It was like God took a really big bucket of snow and said “Tippy over!”

          • H50 ✓RAT

            Has it stopped snowing yet?

          • porkchop6209

            Heck no girl, just getting cranked up good for overnight. It’s 11:45 est, now. Had to take the Misses to work, bands of freezing rain passing through now. Roads are a mess. Driveway’s a mess. Kids are a mess. I’m a mess. House is a mess. But never fear! Once I get free of this “job lock” I’ve so cruelly imposed upon myself, I can think of shoveling snow not as a job, but as an artistic passion that inspires me to create pleasing shapes and piles from “enhanced moisture particles” free’d from “water lock”.

      • sam michaels

        ..I’ll stick with “URG-LY”.

    • Republicanvet

      I’m wondering if someone is missing their parachute.

      • rambler

        or missing their tent.

        • Orpheus75

          would have been cheaper through Sears, Tent, and Awning.

          • rambler

            Ah, but when it needs to house a 3-ring circus, no point in being limited by price.

      • wyomingnative

        I literally LOLed on that one. :)

        • sam michaels

          It’s definitely “ASS-CLOWN-SILLY” for sure…

    • CR

      I was thinking it looked like a table cloth. But tent-like could work as a description as well.

      I also don’t understand why anyone persists in trying to claim this couple is attractive. We have eyes. They are ugly inside and out.

      • BlueGood

        Actually, word is, Moochelle asked to be dressed in a “Bustle”….but her dimwit wardrobe people thought she said BUS….

      From a previous picture, it looks like Bo is wearing a simple red collar. Sunny is tastefully attired in a diamond necklace.

  • waltermitty2012

    We’ll know how important Hollande is depending where Malia and Sasha are sitting.

  • LinTaylor ✓vitrified

    It’s not that attractive a dress. That isn’t even a slam against Michelle, I just don’t think it’s a good design. But considering the way the media fawns over the Obamas, she could probably wear a Hefty bag and they’d act like it was Versace.

  • Perry

    It took 42 yards of material just to cover her backside. EXPENSIVE!

    • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

      Mumu comes to mind.

      • H50 ✓RAT

        Actually, I have a mumu that is very similar, in a bold floral of course.

        • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

          Oh course yours has to be floral and bold, you be the H.F.L.

          Mrs. O has one it’s creamsicle orangish in color, one that I am unable to find her, when she’s in it, a whole lot of material.

          As for yours, H.F.L., we’re both certain yours has style and grace too it for sure.

          M0’s mumu, is just too stiff, it has no flow, and the periwinkle color is also a stiff color, they used the wrong material below the bodice for her height.

          • H50 ✓RAT

            LOL, Thank you sir, it is very pretty, but its also very comfortable a nice soft cotton blend that breathes in the humidity and drapes in all the right places.
            Sounds like Mrs. Os creamsicle mumu could provide you both with hours of entertainment….
            Stiff is the perfect word. The designer should have used a much lighter silk for the skirt. I dont mind the color so much as the contrast against the top, that is what jars my eye.

          • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

            Flowing it sounds for those nice breezes on the shore…

            Regarding Mrs. O’s mumu….It’s t-shirt like creamy soft, and of course… I’m the dive master, she’s the treasure in the sea…

            When a women is tall , as she needs a gown that should flow and drape the body or contour in the bodies shape, if not the naked eye (really the brain) fights what it sees in height and width, material wise and then the contrast of the colors if there is more than one (color). It is jarring like you said with the different materials and the colors…Stiff, which makes her look more stiff, and broadens the visual A-line of the skirt and pulls the floor onto the individual.

          • H50 ✓RAT

            LOL, dive master, you crack me up!
            You nailed it, I have nothing to add. A+

    • H50 ✓RAT

      Good question….I wonder why she isnt there?

      • Elizabeth

        Maybe someone made the decision that it would be poor form to trot a mistress out at a state dinner two weeks after the girlfriend of the little socialist tried to kill herself. But then again – decorum doesn’t seem to be a high priority in this White House.

        • H50 ✓RAT

          Oops. I hadn’t heard she tried suicide. Maybe when she was told she couldn’t come?
          Im guessing Mrs.O put the kibosh on the mans mistress joining them. After that whole Danish PM thing….

          • Elizabeth

            Hmm. She ended up in the hospital with something like a nervous breakdown for being so distraught over his affair. I could be wrong about it being a suicide attempt.

    The bowdown hashtag is kicking butt, on top of the doggie fine dining pic from yesterday folks are getting a little pissed, me thinks.

    Its a nice dress and she looks lovely in it, but an all caps tweet about it? Really? The bowdown thing is a little scary, Thats just a big no-go for me and any FLOTUS.

    • Elizabeth

      When you say the hashtag is kicking butt, does that mean people are agreeing with BOWDOWN or not? I’m not on Twitter.

      • H50 ✓RAT

        Sorry, I should have put it better, conservatives are kicking bowdown butt (bowdown is losing bigtime). The reporter is also getting hit with some choice tweets and getting spanked.

    The one thing to be said in favor of the Obama presidency is that the media doesn’t even try to hide their partisanship now. It’s out in the open for all to see, if they’re willing to look.

    No belt but she’s got the big waistband to emulate it. This dress is as bad those worn by Katy Perry and Annie Lennox on the Beatles 50th celebration. And someone who thinks this tent is attractive charged beau coup bucks for it, too.

  • Denise Bacher-Deeter

    I think the dress only makes her look HUGE! And I do not normally think of Michelle as heavy. But that dress is all wrong for her and NOT attractive. $12k for that?! She got taken.

    Not surprised in the least that the MSM is going crazy over her in it. She could wear a burlap sack and they’d say she is the top of the best dress list.

    • http://www.black-and-right.com/ Ice Cold Troll

      No . . . the DRESS does not make her look huge . . .

  • Tessa I.

    Black lace sleeves with an unadorned French blue skirt? Is she nuts? The top and the bottom look like they belong on two different dresses. With a less voluminous skirt that continued the black overlay from the bodice, the effect would be rather nice, but this is sort of . . . frumpy.

    • Spinmamma

      Yes, I often wonder who dresses this poor woman. Whoever is in charge of costuming at the White House must hate her. With rare exception, the clothes she wears enhance her worst features. No grace.

    That dress reminds me of the old Carol Burnett skit where she and Harvey Korman are acting out Gone with the Wind and she comes down the extravagant stair case wearing drapes with curtain rod still in them. … Seriously, the first thing I thought seeing the pix of Moochelles dress was, she’s wearing drapes around her waist!

    Using the term “fatass” in reference to the First Lady was particularly mature.

    It really burns to know that for three more years, the Obamas will have the same luxuries as every other First Family in history, doesn’t it?

    • Marla Hughes

      Now THAT looks good on her. The dress was awful and unflattering as all get out. If the designer had continued the black lace overlay over the entire dress, made it a nice A-line w/an empire waist emphasized with a plain belt in the French blue she would have looked sophisticated and elegant. Pleats are NEVER a good idea on anyone other than a very skinny person. They add fabric/bulk. That dress added it exactly where she doesn’t need it. She looked like two different women. The one on top slim and elegant and the one on bottom overweight and wearing an expensive tent.

I don’t usually make fun of people’s appearance, but I despise these two Stalinists and E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G. they stand for, including the wanton destruction of our beloved country and the fact that men and women gave their lives to defend this country against Stalinist vermin like them, that I am willing to bend my rule!)

    @michellemalkin I will admit I do like the First Lady’s dress but the Beyonce reference went to far. Thanks for making me think about it.

  • Marla Hughes

    A perfect example of how a dress like MO’s can make an already bottom heavy woman look even heavier and negatively impact how people perceive her was demonstrated by my new favorite singer of all time, Stephanie Anne Johnson. Her rendition of Georgia On My Mind drew on her ability to channel Etta Fitzgerald, Aretha and other black blues greats with smooth and easy transitions that SHOULD have made her one of the top contenders. Instead she was eliminated in spite of a flawless performance. I still feel that unflattering dress had a lot to do with it because everyone thinks in terms of sexy/thin as ‘idol’ material. She’s beautiful, but that dress did her in.


  • wyomingnative

    Wow. That looks like a cheesy prom dress. Hello, consultants, the idea should NOT be to make the lower half look bigger.

        Exactly right. In fact, from here on I think we should give poor, frugal-by-comparison Marie a break. Mooch’s name should be used forthwith. At least Marie gave the people a cake. Mooch gave us EBT cards with nary enough for a box of cake mix, but no eggs or oil.

    just looking at the dress, it’s not that great. the extra fabric at the bottom makes it look ridiculous. I could possibly understand a woman fawning over a really beautiful dress, but again, that dress ain’t beautiful!!

    Can you fugly?????? How sad that people actually think she has class and looks good. yuk! Wonder how much that cost the American peasants?? Interestingly enough when Ann Romney wore an expensive blouse (that she paid for by the way) libs were apoplectic but this thing wears a fugly gown paid for by the peasants and they laud all over her.

  • Jimmie Robinson

    I wonder how much that wig cost…

    Hmmm. Does this dress make her look fat? Or is she really that fat? If she’s going to soak the public for ten to twenty grand for a dress she’ll wear one time maybe she should remove the circus mirrors that must be present in her dressing room. Awful, ugly and embarrassing. And the dress sucks too.

  • Eliza

    She looks completely fat, she looks like she is wearing the bussels of olden days, the ones ladies wore so their arses would look bigger. I would so slap the sh*t out of my designer. People say she is well dressed for a woman her age, yeah, not in this life time.

  • CLL

    That dress is hideous! Like everything else she wears. Jesus Christ how much did thing cost us???

    I can’t believe one of these idiots tweeted this was how all middle age women should dress!

Then there is the other issue of the vast sucking sound of our taxpayer money being evaporated.

  • Thunder Lizard

    In 2014 the media slammed Ann Romney for wearing a $1,700 dress on election night. Nancy Reagan was hammered for getting loaner dresses from designers, wearing them once then donating them to museums. http://www.nytimes.com/1982/02/17/us/nancy-reagan-gives-up-dress-designer-loans.html At least she was not costing the taxpayers of this country by doing that. But Mrs. Obama wears a $12,000 dress and the same media start slobbering over her and one of them even tweets “Bowdown”? I am tired of this pop-culture celebrity presidency, especially with people being thrown out of jobs or having hours cut over Obamacare.

  • Gary


  • MeanGranny

    I could have found her something much more attractive for a lot less at my local thrift store.

    • Casca

      I have a garbage bag she should wear over her head

  • Diggur

    I don’t really think that the point is whether or not the dress is flattering. It’s the fact that the Obamas are so very tone deaf. After tweeting a picture of their dogs seated at the state dinner table wearing jewels, she then appears at a $60,000.00 state dinner in a $12,000.00 dress? Doesn’t any of the Occupy Wall Street crowd find this a little bit ironic? Only the dreaded 1% can afford a $12,000.00 dress. Why is it that Anne Romney gets slammed for spending $1,500.00 on a dress, and Michelle Obama gets praised for this debacle? If the Obamas are so concerned about the poor in this country maybe they should have donated the dress money to charity, and she should have worn something she had in the closet. The media hypocrisy is simply staggering, and the stupidity of the fawning public is unbelievable.

  • Mengles

    I didn’t like the dress. The bottom part is way too flowy and poofy, IMHO.

        The skirt part of the dress is unflattering. The color clashes with her skin tone and her lower body is too pear shaped for this number. It looks huge. I want my share of the $12,000 back.

    You can find the most expensive saddle and put it on a donkey but what you have is still a donkey. This seems to apply to Michelle o and her 12,000 dollar dress. The obama family is all about how they love the poor. Then we see them living it up going on extravagant vacations with 40 of their closest family members, wearing overpriced clothes, sending their daughters to schools where tuition costs more than the yearly income of an average American. They should practice what they preach and live a little more realistically.

    I don’t understand the controversy here. So the First Lady wore a formal gown to a formal dinner, like every single First Lady before her. I don’t get it at all. Why is this a big deal? Why is this even worth talking about? What is going on here?

    • telefrank

      I think these commenters are just mad that the first family isn’t white like those nice Bush folks., so they find fault with every little thing. Not to worry, there’ll be a nice white lady replacing them soon. (HRC2016!)

      • Debbi Lindsay McIntosh

        LOL, I guess you’re right. It’s just crazy to me. OH NO!! The first lady wore a ball gown to a state dinner! Like EVERY SINGLE one before her! GET HER!! She deserves ALL THE HATES!

        I wish some of these people would pull their heads out of their @sses and actually start paying attention to things that really matter. I mean, even though I probably have the opposite stance as most of these people on issues that ACTUALLY matter, the fact that so, so, so much energy goes to bitching about the DRESS someone wore is just so asinine it almost hurts my head.

    • http://yeehee.com/ Yeeheecom

      It’s not about the dress or the color of her skin. You liberals will always bring race up no matter what conservatives say so why waste our time trying to explain to you. You don’t have the common sense to understand.

      • HF

        OK, first of all I didn’t say a single thing about the color of anyone’s skin, so I’m not sure how you can accuse me of “bringing up race.” Literally not one word about race, but I’m a “liberal” who “always brings up race no matter what conservatives say”? What the heck are you talking about?

        Secondly, and by far most importantly…did you REALLY just say “It’s not about the dress”?! This ENTIRE ARTICLE is about the dress! The whole point of this article, literally the only thing discussed in the entire thing, is the dress. Could you please explain how an article entirely about what this woman is wearing “is not about the dress”? I mean…what?? As insane as your first point was, this one is even crazier! *I* don’t have the “common sense to understand”? You mean, to understand how an article literally titled “NBC News Producer Wowed By Michelle Obama’s Dress” is NOT about the dress? This might be one of weirdest responses I have ever received.

        Finally, the comment of mine you replied to said, quite simply, “What’s the big deal?” Could you at least attempt to explain to me why thousands of you are up in arms over a dress?

  • Greg Roberts

    Is she 7 feet tall or something? What is under that dress probably octopus tentacles or something like that thing on little mermaid. Just saying that what it reminds me of.

  • DANEgerus

    the dress comes with designer tie downs and stakes

    well i agree with the CRAP part about the dress.
