Michelle Obama -- Fashion Diva or Disaster?

4/4/2009 1:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sweatergate 2009! Michelle Obama wore a sweater when she met with Queen Elizabeth II this week, and her wardrobe choice has kicked up major drama in the fashion world.

Obama

The First Lady often wears affordable American brand clothes to events, and apparently Oscar de la Renta isn't happy about it. He told Women's Wear Daily, "You don't...go to Buckingham Palace in a sweater."

But in this economy, if the First Lady wears clothes most Americans can afford -- isn't that a good thing?

This woman has no taste and does not look good in anything she wears. She has horse teeth and bow legs. YIPES!

Michelle Obama is in dire need of orthodontia. It's some 35 years overdue, but not too late now. Please get this underway; she looks sadly uncared-for now.

Personally, I'm not a fan of obamassiah, but I think the first lady is beautiful and has impeccable taste. Lay off all you haters!!! "Don't you all wish you could be hot like she. . . . "

Democrats are evil    

These two are clueless. Between the choice of sweater or gown and the gifts they present (I-pods with Obama speeches and DVD movie collections), it's obvious they are being advised by clueless Democrats. But you dems didn't expect the class of a Laura Bush anyways, did you?

pfft    

I must be the only one who thinks her choice in clothes is always horrible. They don't flatter her body shape, especially this outfit. Who the hell shows up with an iPod and a trashy lookin' wife to see the Queen? Yep, there was change alright.
