Here are the facts, gals: First Lady Michelle Obama brought the glamour factor to her husband's second swearing-in ceremony in a dress and coat by Thom Browne with a chic jeweled belt.

Here's the official press pool scoop on the outfit: "The First Lady is wearing a navy Thom Browne coat and dress. The fabric was developed based on the style of a men's silk tie. The belt she is wearing if from J.Crew, the cardigan is designed by Reed Krakoff and her necklace is designed by Cathy Waterman. She is also wearing J.Crew shoes. At the end of the inauguration, the outfit and accompanying accessories will go to the National Archives."

What an UGLY outfit!!!  Of course Shelly  NEVER looks good in anything she chooses to wear.  She needs to stand up straight and stop slouching and for heavens sake do something about that ridiculous over bite.

If you look really good at the Picture of her with her bangs in her face she is the spitting image of Zera from " The Planet of The Apes " Movies and I mean no disrespect at all am being totally serious here as to what I think she looks like. Kim Hinter would be proud I think......For those of you who do not know Kim Hunter Played Zera in the Planet of the Apes Movies.

No, I don't think it was fabulous.  She looked like a Puritan in that horrendous dress! And those bangs are not for a woman her age. What was she thinking? Puritan Separatist maybe? zoinks.

So it’s about time you learn how to take a really, really good one.
