The Obamas Dance the Night Away

President Barack Obama and first Lady Michelle Obama dance the night away at the Home State Inaugural Ball, representing Hawaii and Illinois, held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday.

The President and First Lady danced to “At Last” by Etta James and performed by Beyonce.

First Lady Michelle Obama chose a cream-colored asymmetrical dress designed by Jason Wu. She wore a lemongrass colored outfit this afternoon during the Inauguration Ceremony.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of the First Lady’s evening dress — YAY or NAY?

    uh right @ 01/21/2009 at 3:29 am
    The only racist things that happened today was during the closing prayer. Racism is a TWO way street and DO NOT forget it. BE PREPARED.
    What happened or what was said during the closing prayer that was racist?
    I didn’t get to see it so I am wondering what it could possibly be.
    Could somebody please explain? Thankyou to anyone who answers my question.

    Just because someone doesn’t think Michelle Obama is beautiful doesn’t make them racist.
    It is not a pre-requisite to be beautiful to be a First Lady. It is not a beauty contest. It’s not the Victoria’s Secrets runway.
    Some people may not think Michelle is beautiful….in fact they may think she is ugly. But those same people may think she is a great person, wife, mother etc etc……just not beautiful.
    To call someone a racist because they don’t think Michelle is beautiful is absurd. To call someone racist is actually racist in itself.

    I didn’t vote for Obama because I disagree with many of his policies, but as a person, he seems like someone I’d like to know. As for Michelle’s outfits, I thought she looked fabulous! She’s a beautiful woman in many ways — pretty, smart, caring, etc. It’s obvious they are great parents and seem to honestly love each other. Again, I’m not a fan of Obama’s policies, but for the sake of the country, I wish him the best of luck.

    It was really nice to truly, truly see a real love between a husband & wife who just happens to be our new President & First Lady!! I must say these two just got and for those who don’t see it, never will.

    Also addressing #32 about the end of the Rev. who was a civil rights activist with Martin Luther King who gave the prayer was not a racist quote. My mother who was a young women during that time said that only does over the age of 50 who lived through those years would understand the ending of that prayer. She said that that was a common saying back then. So it was not a dig towards anyone it was what was hoped for by many blacks for equality. The Rev. said it in honor of King and those who fought and lost their lives during a segregated/racist time for us to one day see this very historic opportunity, event & moment.

    This dress is appropriate for a young lady in her 20s or 30s. NOT for someone almost 50. She looks like she’s wearing a prom dress.

    I thought the inauguration dress and coat were even more hideous. Michele has been bitten by the Katie Homely fashion MESS bug.

    wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better than the yellowish nightmare she had on earlier…. she was wayyy out of her league…!!!!

    decent color, slightly darker would have looked better with her skin. too much fluff. something simple and fitting would have been much better. keep the add ons to something along the neckline and not all over the place.

    and michelle, please learn to do something else with your hair. that kind of dress is screaming for even a half up do and yet you do the same school marm flat ironed bob that you were all the time. glam it up darling, glam it up.

    and I disagree somewhat with the Laura Bush comments. she was not the classiest First Lady we’ve had. but folks are right that even a page from her book wouldn’t hurt Michelle at this point.

    After reading all of the negative comments on here I am soooooo glad to have a First Lady in the office who wears what she feel is appropriate for her and her body type! She is not fazed by trying to wear the most expensive gowns to suit the world, she chose to keep it low key but also give some up and coming designers an opportunity to shine and boost the business of small business, get SMALL BUSINESS! So therfore all you naysayers and poo pooers can bite it!! Michelle is a real women with class, smarts (really smart) and beautiful inside & out! She truly represented her & Baracks mission to be a President & First Lady for the people not just the rich people.

    They are the ones who requested a ball for the people and chose to spend the majority of their time at two balls that was most important to them. The Neighborhood & Commander of Chief balls and made the foo foo balls the last on their list. I llllloooooovvvveeee them because they are us, real people. Haters can hate on because whether he do well or not (which is will do more than well I believe) he has already made a difference in this country and around the world!

    Also, you guys that are gripping would be really crying about her dress would be yelling if she chose to purchase a Carolina Herrera, Dior, or some other overpriced gown. You would be saying they are oblivious to the economy and so on. Just face it you haters and Bush lovers (why I have no idea when he litterally collapsed the American economy to a mountain debt) will never be happy with the majority of America’s choice of leadership, yet you will even grip during the benefits of your new president. The President will just continue to do what he do and brush that dirt off his shoulder and move on to business. No time for haters babble!

    I think Michelle didn’t have time to put her hair up. They only had maybe an hour to get ready for the balls. I mean after coming in and attending to some quick business, preparing, and showers time runs away.

    Missy Says:

    99% of the negative comments were deleted. So much for peoples OPINIONS!
    Since nothing negative can be displayed, it clearly shows J a R e d is against any critisism of the Obamas. I know, it’s his site.
    So good luck with deleting negative posts in favor of all flowerery ones. Even if they AREN’T true !

    Michelle is……FUG…..simple as that. Nothing more, nothing less….just plain FUG.

    I think it’s her hair that makes her look awful. A shorter cut with some wave or curls would do wonders and soften her face.
