This photo was taken in connection with Michelle Obama’s upcoming appearance on the Iron Chef television show, at which time she will reveal the “secret ingredient” that the competing chefs have to use in order to make a “meal for America.” (Her husband’s culinary specialty for a “meal for America” is, of course, the shit sandwich.)

Pictured from left to right are: Alton Brown of the Food Channel, Herself, and Mario Batali.

As you can see, each of them is dressed “in character.” Alton Brown (with the brown plaid jacket and non-matching gray, too-long slacks). is dressed as the nerdy, sciency guy he is on the Food Channel. Similarly, Mario Batali is wearing his trademark chef’s apron and orange Crocs. Not to be outdone, Michelle Obama is decked out in one of her signature clown outfits.

I so miss Laura Bush.

  1. There is no shoe that can fully contain those feet of hers.

  2. Jim,
    (sorry) WTF is this outfit of hers??
    It’s not because she is married to The One that she has the right to dress this way!
    MY EYES!!!
    (nice sunday to you!)

  3. It looks like a still from Fellini’s Satyricon.

  4. It is very clear that Michelle Obama has absolutely no taste at all in fashion. All her taste must be in her mouth.

  5. Rescinding my previous comment — she looks more like Thing One and Thing Two from “The Cat in the Hat.”

  9. Aren’t they suppose to have stylists? If she has one she needs to fire them.

  10. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!

  11. BTW, she needs to give that cute little blue sweater back to her daughters, where it fits. And pull the orange flower off or their little friends will make fun of them.

  12. Sorry. I can’t let this go. Even me, Queen Fashion Disaster, Engineer who dresses in solids to keep from embarrassing myself, would NEVER dress like that. Someone vomited Tang all over her.

  13. And the guy with the Orange Crocs? I keep hearing that storybook by Dr. Seuss, “I wish that I had duck feet.”

    Good Lord.

    OK. I’m done… I think.

  14. Is that guy wearing a white kilt, or is he wearing shorts under an apron? I thought it was a Russian woman at first. Who is the guy who was cropped out of the picture on the right?

  15. I’m back. I’m obviously obsessing. I may need counseling over it. I’m on my way to bed and had to come back and say something else.

    Seriously. WTF was she thinking? Is she surrounded by ‘yes men’? She is a modern day story of The Emperor Has No Clothes, except maybe it is ‘The First Lady has Sh– for Taste’. I’m waiting for her to be in a parade and some little kid to yell out, ‘Mommy! The First Lady looks like a clown!” This is 10X worse than that frickin’ wedding cake disaster she wore in England.

    And where is her Mother? Why is her Mother not calling her up and saying, “Michelle, what in the HELL were you thinking when you put on the orange table cloth for TV? You look like you could double as a Thanksgiving Turkey.”

    Ok. I’m done. Really.

  16. Ronald Reagan was the last classy POTUS. These buffoons have reduced the office of the POTUS to the local yodel mayor’s office. And that skank, michelle, makes me want to vomit. These pricks are absolutely tasteless! It’s all about them. Stick up your ass, michelle. And, alton…you’re a fairy.

  17. I really can’t believe that is a real pic of MO — seriously, it’s got to be a joke or a photoshop or something. It is godawful. She looks ridiculous. Tacky. Mentally ill? Who IS advising her? They must be closet GOP. Har.

  20. It look`s like an Episode of “Mr Rodgers Neighborhood”…….”The Yeti goes to Washington DC”…….Can you say Yeti, Boy`s & Girl`s?

  21. This picture is a joke, right?
    No one her size wears ORANGE ORANGE!

  22. I love the expressions on their faces!

    Mrs. Zero appears to be giggling like a goofball and Alton and Mario both look mortified to be seen with her.

  23. Where the hell are the fashion police when you need them?

  24. If she pushes her waistline any higher, it will be at her chin.

  25. That dress and cardigan looks like something I wore in Kindergarten back in 1950. Cute on a 5 year old at the time; not so cute on a 40 something today, let alone the first lady. And to think she is compared to Jackie Kennedy. Ugh.

  26. Here’s weirdness for you… I was checking out HGTV last night during a particularly hideous commercial on another channel. I stumbled across a show called “My First Place” where some girl was buying her first house. It was near the end of the show.

    She drove up to the place, got out of her car and… OMG she was wearing the very same ORANGE colored dress our FLOTUS was wearing. However, this girl paired it with a zebra striped sweater…


    And yes, it looked just as hideous on her as it did on the FLOTUS. GAK!
