Michelle Obama abandons budget fashion for $540 Lanvin trainers

Well that kinda scuppers the 'In touch with the people" image of dear old MILF Michelle Obama doesn't it? The fact that the 'first lady' doesn't need to even have to pay for such trainers, as any company is going to give her anything for free in return for the massive PR value, is neither here nor there! The point is that Michelle Obama has made a big deal out of being ordinary in order to promote a sympathy and relationship with the masses. this is clearly bollocks and really the woman and her Hubby have only been in the Whitehouse for just over 100 days out fo a 1400 day term.

The shiny pink-toed grey suede footwear, made by the French label Lanvin, was paired with cropped grey trousers and a $100 cardigan from her favourite High Street clothing store, J Crew, when she visited the Capital Area Food Bank in Washington on Wednesday to help put together food packs for poor children.

The First Lady has been praised for favouring reasonably-priced clothes, although she has worn clothes by Lanvin on previous occasions. Critics were quick to question the appropriateness of wearing such expensive shoes to a charity event for the poor.

"They're shoes," said Mrs Obama's representatives in response to media questions about them.

It is Emperor's New Clothes IIRC. But if Mrs O wanted something something like those, she could have simply gotten a pair of Converse trainers. (Much cheaper.)

If you aren't willing to stand behind your troops, feel free to stand in front of them.

I guess so. I've always known it as king's new clothes. I think I've heard the emperor version too.
