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.


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?

I think she looked horrible. If you look at the dress she wore whe she first got off the plane looked alot better the what she wore to see the queen.

Guess the reason the Media is always fawning over the Obamas, is they don't want to appear racist. The late night shows never tell jokes about Obama like they do other politicians. Even the Democrats in Washington are getting tired of Obama's grandstanding. Anymore, any time he appears on TV, I turn it off. You can tell he thinks he's the greatest thing since sliced bread. How did he ever get such a Big Ego ???

Mrs Joe Biden is beautiful and dresses beautifully. She has a PHD and appears brighter than Obama and Mrs Obama - and Joe Biden. Please more info about her than homely Michelle.

On television the First Lady of France looked gorgeous and her clothes were lovely and appropriate. Our First Lady looked like she shopped at Good Will - clothes too loud and too tight. You're not in South Chicago anymore, Michelle, try to look and act the part. It may be impossible, though.

It's not as if the queen was in her royal finery. She looked pretty casual for her.

An angry man who doesn't want to be president just the things that goes with the office and needs president lessons. a first lady who wears $540 dollars shoes to a food rally for poor people. she must have borrowed them from her daughter with their color. a first lady who needs her top teeth braced!!!!! come on and the things they gave the Queen of England. Didn't he think the Queen of England had an Ipod with to young grandsons around. And why did he think the Queen wanted to hear false promises from a man who talks out both sides of his mouth and whistles while he speaks? This man hasn't said anything good about America goes to other countries and apologizes for bad thing America did to them. With Obama around America will be the best country the world has lost. take some night classes on America's history and learn the Constitution. Obama you are a sad mess who is wasting our taxes.

429. With all the disaster across the world, including here in the U.S., someone is worried about what someone is wearing???? Are you kidding me?

Apparently she got an antique snuff box from the Queen as a gift, and promptly used the snuff. I see it in her bottom lip! Wookie Alert!!!!
