She still looks angry…

Former First Lady Michelle Obama is still mad at the world if  this photo of her on vacation in Italy is anything to go by.   And she is still wearing clothes which are ill-suited for her age,  figure,  and former position.   And we taxpayers are on the hook for the cost of the Secret Service protection for the First Couple.

I expect she will remain Our Lady of Perpetual Dissatisfaction when she gets around to having her book ghost-written.

All style, no substance…

Barack Obama has edged out Brad Pitt as the world’s most stylish man, according to a poll of  3,000 men.    I certainly agree that the President dresses very well,  and much better than his wife,  despite the fashionistas drooling over her.

Indeed I would agree that his elegant clothing looks as expensive as it is  hanging from his thin frame.     Jackie Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn always wore their clothes,   but the President’s clothes ride him.     I know a number of rail-thin people who look good in anything because there’s little underlying shape to interfere with the drape of the fabric.    I know only a couple who are masters of what they wear.

I wouldn’t mind shoulders a tad less broad,  or some reduction in other body parts,  but I have never been a clothes horse  — that’s my niece’s job,  and she’s extremely good at it.   I’m perfectly happy for people to remember me for my sense of humor,  my hot peppers,  or my brain  —  but I need a president with something more than style.
