Michelle Obama cites these shorts as her biggest fashion regret

When asked what her biggest fashion regret was during an interview with BET's "106 and Park" this week, US First Lady Michelle Obama said the shorts (pictured above) which she wore as she exited  Air Force One with her daughters during a family vacation in Arizona was her biggest fashion regret.

Mrs Obama said she regretted wearing it back in 2009 because of the backlash she received from people who felt it was inappropriate for a First Lady to dress like that.

She told BET,
"Because people were like, 'she's wearing shorts getting off of Air Force One. Sometimes I forget I'm the first lady and I'm running around in shorts."
Michelle said she won't wear shorts on Air Force One or out in public again. But what's wrong with wearing shorts tho?

What's wrong with the first lady wearing shorts and getting off of Air Force Once you ask,Miss Blogger?
Imagine Patience wearing shorts and exiting the presidential jet...yeah that's what's wrong with it!

She's just trying to please the white racist americans that don't believe that a blackman should rule americans. If I were her I will even wear THONGS boarding and alighting from the airforce one. They never see anything. Rubbish!

Because she is a 'The Queen' of America (till 2016). I believe American mums are still by default somewhat very conservative, at least subconsciously.

Bad belle people sha, it wasn't like she was doing anything official when she was dressed like that

Anonymous said...

the question is not what is wrong with wearing shorts tho,the question should be, what is wrong with the first lady wearing shorts around like every other average person on the street,, she is no longer just an average person on the street, she is a person of importance,,her ways should be different from the rest..

KayDiaries said...

Nawa o! Is it about wearing shorts or the shorts itself, cos I see nothing wrong with that.

Nothing Bad! I guess She is just trying to bare the Virtuous woman in her.

The americans just lk d British monarch believe dt their 1st lady must be d epitome of womanhood nd dt includes dressing properly. See she regretted her actions bt tell our 1st dt u dnt cme down 4rm flight b4 ur husband or walk in front of hm nd d nx day she does same

If its inappropriate for her to wear it..then white women should take a hint from that and stop going around naked biko...

This really is somehow for a first lady but cool on the other side.

The American first family love the American people and so if You and I say something is not bad and their people say otherwise they listen to the Americans. Nigerians mean absolutely nothing to our rulers. They dont give a damn about our feelings.

The obamas appreciate that they owe their tenancy of the white house to the Americans. So they do want their people want. Here our rulers do not give a damn about us.

She is first of all a mother enjoying a family vacation before a first lady. What is wrong with the shorts ehen? The shorts was of a perfect length and she looked fit and very good. They should all take a seat and live their lives the way they want, they should not over criticize someone for living a normal life.

Anonymous said...

I totally disagree with you Mich. Your logic of using Patience as an example is so wrong, why? Because Patience wouldn't look appropriate in anything other than being fully clothed. Besides, she was on vacation with her family. Would you ordinarily think a woman on vacation is inappropriately dressed from the pictures above, I would say a big fat NO.

@Hilary,you're Slow sha...Imagine the people you're comparing her with,so dumb of you...let's even start with this ;Is she Age mates with Rihanna and Lady Gaga? Gosh! Some people can be very stupid though..Plus she's is the first Lady of the Uinted states of America,do you even have an idea what that means? I personally don't see anything wrong with that outfit she had on because she has the body for it,but am just wondering why your Lame Ass would even let you compare such a respectable citizen of America with them Bitches who go around posing nude for mags and dance around naked on the stage to stay relevant. PS:And for the records,Am a fan of RiRi but sometimes you've gatta leave sentiments and just speak the truth#okay bye

This is a perfect example of a decent lady. Knows her office, her current status as a wife and what she should stand for, giving up her normal routine and way of life cos she serves as an example to millions. Kudos to her.

She is sooo damn hot in those shorts, she is right though as the first lady of usa she cant run around in public wid shorts, like d common so called celebs!

*facethefact* its not abt the shorts ofcuz she can where it ard her home but its expected a woman of her status shd not been seen ard on short like everyodr woman on the streets. Stars can't be compared to her cuz they stand no chance as much as the role she occupies.

I'm so proud of that lady, I would have thought since it looks like it's more traditional in the state's to wear shorts during the summer when it's hot, but for her to be criticized and she felt bad, dates so cool. She really a people person........ who talked of patience wearing shorts??? No be our tradition nahh, and someone said if it were her she would wear thongs, some people are so senseless, I'm rolling o d floor right now.
