Put this in the “for what it’s worth” category, because yesterday Motor Trend also named the lemony Chevy Volt the “Car of the Year”:

No surprise here: Vogue is out with its “Top 10 Best Dressed” list, and Michelle Obama has won the honor.

Branding Obama “The Independent” the fashion bible’s website shows a photo of the first lady stepping off of a plane in a flowing blue and white dress.
[...]
Vogue’s at-large editor, Andre Leon Talley says of Obama: “Style is not an afterthought to this wife and mother committed to national service; whether she is frolicking on the White House lawn in Converse or at an awards dinner in Michael Kors scarlet chiffon, she always looks elegant and appropriate to the occasion and to our modern times.”

Always looks elegant? Er…

And like Jackie O showing up in south Florida during the Bay of Pigs crisis in a dress with missiles all over it, what other fashionista would have gone oil spill chic?

Always “appropriate to the occasion”?

That was a little like going to a state that was ravaged by forest fires and showing up in a limo covered in flame decals.

    Who knew an ugly shirt could slap the entire gulf coast in the face?

    Oh please. Best dressed? Really? If Vogue had any credibility left, it just lost it.

    As usual, you're right sizemorew*, especially whilst fawning over the Emporer's Clothes.

    The failing here though goes well beyond being simply a matter of attire. What the Nobamas misjudged was, Celebrity-Fatigue. Sorry ya'll, be it Justin Beiber ( memba' 'him'? ) FLOTUS, 50-Cent, Tom Brady, Miley Cyrus or Oprah… we're utterly and completely BURNT OUT on Celebs.

    It's simply not possible for us to care any LESS! Media-Overload/Total Saturation has been achieved! Unlike recessions past, celeb-trainwrecks aren't nearly as 'distracting'/entertaining when the American public is disengaged from that, busy watching their OWN lives circle the drain? IMHO.

    Please remember that Motor Trend also named the Chevy Vega car of the year too. Kinda puts most fashionable by Vogue in the proper perspective.

    And who gives a rat's ass anyway?

    "…….who gives a rat`s ass anyway ?" The single best, most relevent question of the day, IMHO !

    For decades, it`s been one fashion / movie critic after another trying to be relevent AND trying to shape the industry, all the while being way off the mark !

    Had a friend back in the 70's that drove ( an aluminum block ) Vega and we were -forever- working on it! I think it gave up the ghost before it had 60k miles on it.

    nannykins, that rat's @ss you're referring to is exactly what Moochelle can't figure out!? "Why don't the little people 'love' me any more?" It's the same disconnect her HUSBAND has. Yo'! Hey.., Obamas, for a brief time, it was exciting ( for Libs ) and maybe even a few mod's/'independents' bought into it for awhile?

    But we've tired of you loooong before the end of your Term. Like Lizzie Grubman, Lady Ga-ga and Bristol's former BF, we just can't figure how to install a Moochelle/Barack Pop-Up Blocker? ( IT is working on it as we speak )

    It's just like all the talk about Bristol Palin making the final cut on DWTS. Who cares? It was ad nauseum today. I can't believe people take this shit so seriously – I've got other things in my life more pressing than who the hell danced on a tv show.

    Will probably be available about the same time as the proposed "cell phone kill switch" for future automobiles !

    Perhaps the IT guys can get givermint grants to work on "C-chips", Like the V-chip, this will block conservstive programming or persons from appearing on your tube ! Thus preventing the deranged from shooting said tubes !Easily converted to an "L-version", I want one of those ! Of course, I don`t really need one, preferring to shoot pictures off the walls !

    Since when is mutt ugly with a big ass fashionable ?

  10. jojo on November 17th, 2010 11:48 pm

    Since Jan 21, 2009.

    Skankariffic!

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, MO is a cOw!
