Michelle Obama attends the unveiling ceremony for the bust of Sojourner Truth in the U.S. Capitol Visitors Center in Washington, DC wearing a Sophie Theallet dress
Regardless of your party affiliation, you've got to admit it's an awesomely powerful moment when the nation's first African-American first lady unveils a long-overdue tribute to Sojourner Truth.
But enough of that! Let's criticize what she's wearing!
Sophie Theallet is a French-born fashion designer living in the U.S. She's worked with Jean-Paul Gaultier and Azzedine Alaia. Of particular interest is that she used only black models to walk this collection, which makes Shelley's choice of this dress for this event a bit ... subversive. Oh, Shelley. You cheeky girl. We love a woman who can send a secret message through fashion.
Would that she only had the nerve to wear the head scarf that the model's wearing. It really completes the look but we suspect over-sensitive pundits would have read too much into it.
