Michelle Obama's $86 Dress: Cute or Corny?

If Michelle Obama wears something cheap, it makes news. If she wears something expensive, it makes news. And if she wears something reasonably priced, guess what? It makes news.

The first lady wore an $86 red-and-white checkered ASOS dress on Sunday in Concord, N.H., where she was supporting troops and their families at the Joining Forces Cookout for National Guard and Reserve and Active Duty members, the "Today" show reports.




We can't deny that the dress, from the British brand ASOS, is perfect for a summer barbecue, even if she does kind of resemble a tablecloth. The dress also has a bit of a 1950s suburban housewife feel, which seems to be the look she was going for.

She did, however, stamp her signature style on the look with a red patent leather belt and hoop earrings.

In other M.O. news, the first lady said she never wants to go into politics and sometimes resents sharing her husband with the world, but she feels, "this is our duty." She also praised McDonald's for adding fruit and veggies to Happy Meals.

But back to fashion, do you think Obama pulled off the look? Or do you kind of want to spread the dress over the table and eat corn on the cob over it?

    This lady can't get dressed without someone claiming she has a political motive.

    Sorry guys, don't much like it.

    Someone should do a referendum about exactly how much is an appropriate amount of money for a first lady to spend on a dress ;) Then Michelle can always spend that amount and no one can complain.

    Cute. And if a First Lady spends only $86 on a dress, it's a miracle. I have nothing against Laura Bush, but would love to see what some of her clothing cost.

    Of course she spent only $86, that was her money that is why it looks like a table cloth from the family picnic. But when she goes on vacation on OUR MONEY skies the limit going to other countries for lunch & shopping and exploring S. Africa for her new home. She is NO FIRST LADY, SHE IS AN INSULT TO AMERICAN PRIDE !!! Can't wait to see her gone !!!

    Really? Like, Seriously??? How many more questions are there going to be on what Michelle Obama is WEARING? Who really cares? You'd think America has some real issues or at least remotely interesting ones at this moment to be concentrating on. And what's even sadder is how some people take this as an opportunity to bash Michelle Obama, saying that she's ugly or dresses badly or fat and therefore that makes her worth less as a human being who's just trying to do her best? I get that you may not agree with her political opinions but to turn it so personal just makes you look like a immature little child and I simply cannot respect you for that.

    Who cares how much she spends on clothing? That's so dumb to chastise her for buying a reasonably priced outfit! I would like to see more celebrities following suit. When people are starving around the world, it infuriates me that some people spend outrageous amounts of money on frivoulous things!

    Then she must really infuriate you, as she spends more frivolously than any First Lady ever, especially when it comes to taking seperate Taxpayer owned Jets on vacation with the family on our dime!
