“Mrs. Obama’s steps into the campaign spotlight underscore her transformation from a once-reluctant political spouse into a confident public figure…
But this week, Mrs. Obama will wade into the campaign fray on behalf of Hillary Clinton, putting her broad popularity
and reputation for authenticity
to work for a candidate who has suffered from a lack of both.” NYT
“Obama has created a valuable brand for herself since she moved into the White House, nurtured all these years by being very judicious in her choice of public events and interviews.” - Chicago Sun Times
Here’s Lady M’s most recent, judicious choice of public events: shopping at CVS (authenticity!) with Ellen:
Where they worked a coin machine (checkout the broad popularity!)
figured out how to open a box of wine (authenticity!)
and had a Bernie sighting:
And sorry, if you were planning on Lady M steppin’ in for Hilz should she have an unfortunate relapse of her non-contagious pneumonia, forget about it. MO’s got much bigger plans: hello Hollywood! I’m ready for my close-up!
She’s been under the tutelage of the best role model for the “girls” for years now:
So stepping out in this Gucci (Bey’s designer-of-choice for her “Formations” video) frock constructed of fabric representing the allegorical La Carte de Tendre was a stunning statement: The Lake of Indifference, The River Inclination - Tender On Esteem! How clever! How authentic!
“The enormously popular and much imitated Carte de Tendre...became a symbol for the politically and culturally independent, aristocratic salonnières '”
'in this geography of sentiment the personal is indeed political...placing the female prerogative at the center of civilization'
My advice: drop that frock in the basket of deplorables and send it off to the Salvation Army.
