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 is to #4
I'm not sure you would even recognise class. It's bad enough when people say the word 'anyway' and drawl it out but to actually type it with an 's' is extremely sad and tells alot about you.
Michelle looked fine. Both she and Barack are intelligent. That's what the world needs now. We've already had stupid for far too long.
What would you have given the Queen in this recession?

The only thing I see wrong with her is that she should've given a genuine smile instead of that pursed closed lipped smile. She's got excitement written all over her.

Mrs. President should wear clothes that the "average american" can afford, and with the US economy in the crapper, forget all the designer togs and be american, WEAR AMERICAN

OH SHUT UP!!! they are people like you and I. I think she is beautiful. If it were some of you people you'd look even more ridiculous. They are not trying to be movie stars. Some of you people need a life and a personality.

What?    

One poster wrote, "You don't wear sweater to meet the queen." Who the hell is the queen? No disrespect intended. Obviously, someone has brought into the notion that the queen is deity perhaps. She is no more important that the Obamas are. Furthermore, I doubt if the poster have even met Queen Latifyah and knows little about fashion protocol.

Well I guess she still thinks America is a "mean country" and the bossy witch told Obama to say all the disparaging words about the USA that he did! How dare these ingrates destroy our country and endanger us with their words and criminal associates.

Her choice of wardrobe was very appropriate given the economic mess we're in. Sorry, Oscar de la Poopypants, but right now this country doesn't want to see another public figure wasting money on couture.

She looks beautiful, the type of gal you'd take home to mama . She's very down to earth. All the over priced clothing that designers want her to parade in are overrated. Only about 5% of the population can afford them anyway. Get back to basics I say. That's why the world economy's in such poor shape.They all look good.
