I have been mulling over Michelle Obama's ball gown for over a week. What can I say, I have no life. Anyway then I saw this dress on Neo-Neocon's blog. It's wonderful in its simplicity.
Jackie Kennedy wore the silk jersey dress by Oleg Cassini April 29, 1962(at a dinner in the White House for Nobel Prize Winners). The color celadon might might be all wrong, but the style is more classical and less high school promy. The dress is too busy and detracts from the first lady. She should be wearing the dress. Instead, the dress is wearing her, and she just looked uncomfortable.
