Nation Hot For Michelle Obama’s Bare, Buxom…Arms?


Michelle Obama Portrait

Ok, Michelle Obama likes a sleeveless dress, and we would too if our arms looked like that. Claps to the lack of uggums on first lady gear.

Still, the skintillating nature of her fashion choices screams scandal for some. Jaws dropped last Tuesday when she wore a sleeveless Narciso Rodriguez dress to her hubby’s pseudo-State Of The Union. Her official White House portrait slips her into the limbpossibly hot Michael Kors number pictured above. Then came Friday’s biceptacular People cover…

Everyone’s up in arms:

The New York Times hates:

“If she keeps going at this rate, Mrs. Obama may do to dresses with sleeves what President John F. Kennedy did to men’s hats,” wrote Jodi Kantor on the Caucus blog, opining the end of formal male headgear.

Bonnie Fuller (former Editor-in-Chief of US Weekly, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, YM) defends: 

“Is Michelle Obama supposed to wear a burka? Since when are a woman’s arms considered an erogenous zone here in America?”

Since CNN’s curmudgeonly reporter Jack Cafferty not-so-subtly lusted:

“Her arms are becoming the stuff of legend. Who appears sleeveless on the cover of Vogue, let alone in front of a joint session of Congress while her husband delivers one of the most important speeches of his life? And the reviews were rave.”

And Chicago Tribune reporter Wendy Donahue linked Michelle’s arms to the economy:

“In many ways it’s the perfect accessory for the times. They cost nothing except maybe a gym membership or a couple of 15-pound hand weights. Those toned arms are the envy of every woman, not just 45-year-old women, but 25-year-old women.”
