Jul 30 - Michelle Obama sparks fury after buying $6,800 designer jacket for reception
 

 
Political commentators have expressed their fury over the fact that Michelle Obama wore a jacket worth $6,800 to the pre-Olympics Opening Ceremony reception at Buckingham Palace on Friday.

Though the dazzling J Mendel jacket and skirt won critical acclaim from the style set, some pundits are furious that she elected to spend so much money on a garment while so many in the U.S. are suffering financially.

A post on the Gateway Pundit blog read that the design 'cost more than the average American family makes in a month ($4,284)'.'She does this as Americans continue to suffer through a deep recession and record unemployment,' writer Jim Hoft said. 'Michelle feels your pain.'Regardless of the criticism, the ensemble was deemed a sartorial hit by style watchers, who had nothing but praise for the all-white look.

The jacket, which was almost armour-like in style, was embroidered in shimmering silver. The cap sleeves showed off those famously toned arms, while the high neckline kept the look demure.Regardless of the criticism, the ensemble was deemed a sartorial hit by style watchers, who had nothing but praise for the all-white look.

The jacket, which was almost armour-like in style, was embroidered in shimmering silver. The cap sleeves showed off those famously toned arms, while the high neckline kept the look demure.It was also in keeping with her patriotic red, white and blue fashion theme of the day, and proved to be a strong choice that saw her hold her own against the UK's reigning fashion princess, the Duchess of Cambridge.

Of course, Catherine did not disappoint. The fitted coat-dress, an custom-made design by young British favourite Christopher Kane, was an elegant choice that fitted her like a glove.

Mrs Obama arrived at the Buckingham Palace reception with of Louis Susman, the U.S. Ambassador, who hosted her morning Let's Move event at his London residence.The Duchess of Cambridge warmly greeted Mrs Obama, who had been invited in her role as head of her country's Olympic delegation.

The two women first met just over a year ago when the Obamas flew to the UK on a state visit.

The rest of the Royal Family were also out in force for a full-scale charm offensive on global leaders attending London's Olympic Games.

More than 190 guests were present - including 95 heads of state and government and their spouses - ranging from Mongolia to the Marshall Islands, in the northern Pacific.

isn't it her money? Can't she do with it as she pleases? And who is to say she wasn't gifted this sh*t? Designers always give clothes or let public figures rock their stuff at public gatherings, its free publicity. Especially at the Olympics.

lol of course they don't say sh*t, its the daily a caller a conservative website. They'd rather spend time talking about what Michelle Obama is wearing rather than talk about the greedy bankers rigging Libor rates, and their Boy mittens Romney fundraising with the same dudes who participated in that perpetual fraud. naa First Lady's clothing choice much more important. Meanwhile Willard is getting money from Barclays and Bob Diamond.

this is simply to distract us from the real issues.

We're in this hole because of selfish politicians and a broken American system. Not because the first lady decides to buy a jacket with money she earned.

Politicians got money, and really can't currently relate to the everyday struggle that most ppl face. Nothing new here if she got the chop let her cop.

Even if she didnt spend $6800 on that jacket, that money still isnt going to the American people. Does everyone really expect her to go to JC Penny for clothes to wear to an event as big as the Olympics.

Leave her a.ss alone.

Misery loves company

sh*t like this fuels classism though. If you're poor you should feel guilty. If you're rich you should feel guilty. What happened to minding our own fu*king business and doing the best we can in life?
