Michelle O was on Leno last night, talking about clothes, kids and romance. (Am getting sick so unfortunately didn't stay up for it myself.) Check out the yellow duds. I love how she's adventurous in putting outfits together. I don't think this worked, though. She was trying to mix it up and put on a little glam for a late-night show, but she overdid it. There's just too much going on — the light and dark yellow in the sweater, the black and yellow silk blous, the pin, the texture in the skirt. What looks great in real life just may not translate to TV.
I would have chosen something a little more streamlined and slinky — maybe a high neck and bare arms, long with a slit, something very simple and elegant. I like this outfit fine, but it looks like something to wear for brunch with girlfriends.
Bottom line: She says the Obamas buy their own clothes, thank you very much. And that's while Palin & Co. can't stop talking about their wardrobe troubles and especially how wronged they've been.
