    Re: does anyone here actually care what Michelle Obama was wearing?

    It's my experience that those who vote for a politician are much more likely to 'care' about the personal touches and relationships and the gossip than those who didn't vote for that politician. I can remember how many Republicans were quite interested in Ronald and Nancy Reagan's images at home and abroad. There was a sense, after Jimmy Carter, that the Reagan's had restored a more glamorous image to the White House. Of course, Democrats made fun of Nancy's purchase of new china, among other things. Much as Republican's are now poo-pooing all the fuss over Michelle Obama's clothing.

    I suspect the Obama's image consultants are probably having heated debates over many of these minor details. On the one hand, they want to dress up the first couple's image. On the other hand, they don't want to make them appear 'imperial' and risk losing support among their base. Which is probably why they've chosen these idiotic selection of gifts... such as the Queen's video-iPod. It's a way of doing a delicate balancing act.

    Nope. Fashion is at best an idle and occasionally entertaining diversion.

    For most of us who work for a living... fashion is a little more than an idle diversion. For some of us it's integral to our job. Which is why most work places have some minimal dress codes. And many workplaces have very strict dress codes.

    Fashion is also critical for those in the 'upper levels' of society. If you plan on taking the wife to a five-star restaurant for your anniversary, it's advisable to check in advance, no? The same if you're invited to enjoy a round of golf at the exclusive country club. Proper attire required.

    Fortunately most of us don't need to consider these kind of things on a daily basis. But if we were in a position to be hob-nobbing with the Queen and heads of state from around the world... these types of things would probably suddenly seem quite important.

    In other words, an idle diversion for the idle.

    If a restaurant wants my business, they'll take me in my black jeans and my leather vest (and bolo tie if I want to dress fancy). The number of stars the restaurant has in the Michelin Guide is not relevant.

    I suppose you might consider the goings on at exclusive country clubs to be 'idle diversions.' But somehow I suspect the discussions and meetings at these types of clubs have much more impact on our society than the discussions and meetings at the local waffle house.

    But maybe I'm just a bit conspiratorial.

    Sure I care. The First Lady represents our country. I expect her to wear fashionable clothing made by our best designers. She's American royalty.
