Michelle Obama showed up at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn wearing $4,000 dollar glittery thigh-high Balenciaga boots and a big yellow wrap around dress. Social media lit up over her funky fashion choice with many people were comparing her outfit to Melania Trump’s Christmas dress. But, while wearing the bold ensemble, the former first lady mocked the president. It was the current first lady, however, who shut her down. You’ll love this.
Michelle Obama shocked everyone who caught her latest fashion statement at the Barclays Center last night. And, not all of the comments were complimentary.
Who knows what possessed the former first lady to don a bright yellow satin wrap-around dress and then top it off with latex, glittery, thigh-high boots, even if they are worth $4,000 dollars. Let’s just say, it was a “what was she thinking?” moment.
One critic wrote, “Big Bird comes to mind with the yellow Balenciaga full-length wrap dress. Let’s face it, she’s a big woman so the head-to-toe bright yellow is ‘Big-Birdish’…No?”
They went on, “Then we have the thigh-high Balenciaga glittery boots that hug Michelle’s every lump and bump on the way up. It’s like Dorothy’s glitter meets the Wicked Witch and her pointy shoes.”
Former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett got a snapshot of those pointy shoes, tweeting, “Well, I have never seen boots like this before. Have you? Love that @MichelleObama chose these for her last stop on her 2018 #IAmBecoming book tour in Brooklyn, NY.”
“I have never seen boots like this before,” doesn’t quite sound like a compliment. Can you just imagine Jarrett having a cringe-worthy moment the minute she saw this disaster? We can only imagine what Barack thought. But, that’s not all.
Of course, just like in the story The Emperor’s New Clothes, no one in the mainstream media dared to tell Michelle she looked ridiculous. Instead, the Obamaites on social media were gushing with praise, including major fashion magazines like Cosmopolitan and Elle Magazine.
“Michelle Obama Just Stepped Out in $4,000 Gold Thigh-High Boots and I’ve Never Loved Her More,” declared the Cosmopolitan headline. “Naturally, Michelle dressed up for the occasion, and when I say ‘dressed up’ I mean she rendered all other lewks [sic] irrelevant thanks to a pair of sparkly gold thigh-high boots worth almost $4,000,” Cosmo continued, heaping on the praise.
Of course, Michelle wasted no time last night mocking President Donald Trump and his administration. “Oftentimes, when you’re the first or the only, the bar shifts a lot, right? The bar gets set, you meet it, exceed it, they move the bar, and we’re watching that right now — the bar’s just swinging, and swinging,” the former first lady told the crowd, according to The Associated Press.
“It’s a totally new bar — never seen this bar before, ever. But, when we were in office, our bar was very different — not getting indicted, and telling the truth,” she quipped. “This is going to be reported on — ‘Michelle Obama throwing shade,’” she said later on, during the talk, to laughter. “These are just facts!”
Well, these are just facts too: Michelle’s husband is responsible for covering up the biggest political scandal of modern times — illegally spying on President Donald Trump — and wearing that horrendous shiny, glittery outfit isn’t going to make it go away.
There’s no doubt Michelle was trying to outdo the reigning first lady’s white sequin dress that she just wore to the White House Christmas party. Even Glamour Magazine, who usually ignores anything Melania wears, had to give FLOTUS major kudos.
“FLOTUS appeared alongside President Donald Trump at the White House on Saturday evening (December 15) in a form-fitting, long-sleeve dress made entirely out of white sequins. (‘Tis the season, after all.) Take a look,” reported Glamour. “The style was from Céline’s spring 2018 collection.”
Now, this is how you “sparkle” with class. If Michelle Obama thought her version of a sparkling outfit could outdo Melania, well, the first lady just shut down that debate. Hands down.
Melania Trump is a major beauty. She was an international fashion model. Michelle Obama is so out of her league, trying too hard to don designer duds that are meant for a model-thin body — like Melania Trump’s.
And, there is no shame in that. Most of us aren’t model-thin and can’t wear certain styles. But, it’s unfathomable that no one told Michelle Obama that thigh-high, glittery, latex boots look utterly ridiculous on a 54-year-old woman with a large frame.
Sometimes, we need our friends to tell us the truth. Surrounded by sycophants, Michelle Obama has no one who loves her enough to be brutally honest. That’s what happens when you seek power above all else, and I don’t feel sorry for her at all. You reap what you sow.
