Okay, I know everyone is sick of the whole shallow coverage of Michelle Obama versus Carla Bruni fracas and/or thinks that this is the wrong economic moment to focus on fashion, ¬†but I am loving the fashion coverage. I think they both look great. I like Carla Bruni’s ’60s bourgeoisie-in-Dior look–she’s straight out of a housewife-gone-bad New Wave¬†flick. Carla Bruni is definitely going demure, but we know your supermodel past, girl!

I like architectural details at the neck–Michelle Obama is wearing something with some interest at the neck here, too. Mrs. Obama is more modern than Mrs. Sarkosky–her looks aren’t very retro, even if they have a retro detail to them.
