Michelle Obama Dons a $6,800 Jacket: Does it Offend You When the First Lady Wears Expensive Clothes?

Michelle Obama wore an exquisite J. Mendel cap sleeve jacket to the London Olympics reception -- and there's no denying it's gorgeous -- but there is some controversy over the price: $6,800. Check out the dud... and the critical reactions in the video below!



It almost seems like the First Lady can't win because she has also been criticized for wearing "cheap" clothing, but that seems to be the status quo for females in the political world. When you see the First Lady (any First Lady) wearing expensive clothes like this, does it seem like she's flaunting her wealth like some claim. Does it offend you? Or does it go with the territory of being married to the President of the United States?

EXAMINER.COM reports:
Move over, Ann Romney. It looks like you’ve been outspent in the wardrobe department by First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama.

    Only because the left made such a huge deal over Ann Romney's clothes and even Sarah Palin's.

    The First Lady has always in recent memory worn expensive clothes. Only fashion watches can really tell. Whether they are expensive jeans, shoes the average person can't tell. The gowns that she wears doing events are expensive.

    Actually michelle said it years ago when asked, where do she buy her clothes, the answer was "J Crew"

    It doesn't offend me at all...

    What does offend me is when she and her husband make a big deal out of other people's wardrobe...

    Like they did when the REPUBLICAN PARTY paid for Palins wardrobe during the election...the Dems acted like it came out of THEIR pocket...

    but this is OK...

    Ann Romney spends her OWN money on a blouse...and she's an elitist 1% er...

    Yet, While partying on the town wearing three allegedly 'barrowed' very pricey diamonds by Katie Decker, including Decker's "Lotus" cuff with 2.9 carat diamonds costing at $15,000, the "Gothic" cuff with 2.17 carats diamonds for $15,350 and the "Quatrefoil" bracelet featuring 1.73 carat diamond priced at $11,800...makes her a fashionista of the people...

    While Michelle says I have to ask for french fries in my kids happy meals, but settles with half a portion of fries and a bag of apples...

    It's a 'double with cheese a large fry and and a large shake' for her and the family...

    fat ass

    It's the blatant hypocrisy that pisses people off

    Our debt is due to the fact that," We The People" have been and still are asleep at the wheel from the inception of the federal reserve act of 1913. The Central Banks are whom the blame should be cast and ourselves. The FED is unconstitutional!

    Why such extravagence in these economically troubled times .... because in the Obama's case, money can't buy you class!
    Hopefully they are planning a nice extravagent vacation because they won't be living off the citizens money for much longer! Hurry up November!

    The First Lady represents our nation and should dress accordingly. Does anybody think she should go hit the summer clearance sale at Wal-Mart? Name clothes DO cost a great deal, regardless of who you are. (Go for a stroll through a high-end store like Nordstrom's or Saks and brace yourself for sticker shock.)

    Yes , she is the First Lady..... But, its definitely in poor taste to be so extravagant and lavish on her taste in clothes when the USA is in such bad shape. Especially now when there are way more on welfare then the whole history of the USA and unemployment is still horrible with no signs of recovery....I do believe the Obama's are out of touch with the majority of Americans.

    No, not if it's her money or if the clothing was loaned to her. However, I do think it's ironic that her husband spends most of his time vilifying the wealthy while his wife wears a top worth more than most America families make in a month.

    I agree ! As long as the TAXPAYERS DIDNT PAY FOR THE CLOTHING THEN ITS FINE.... however its NOT fine that the TAXPAYERS had to pay for her to fly there and her expenses while she is there....... aka Air Force One and hotel, security, food and travel back and forth.

    How the hell does anyone know what her jacket cost or anything else she wears?

    She is very likely given many of her clothes to wear, because it helps those designers when their clothes are seen.

    Just like the hollywood celebs who wear expensive dresses to the awards, those are given to them! They do not buy them, the designers WANT the celebs to be seen in their clothes.

    So sick and tired of all the ranting, and lying about our First Lady. You nuts really need a damn life. How about one w/ integrity and honesty?

    Four more years will do worse than exhaust people. It will entirely drain most of us.
