Speechless. I am hoping that next up Lady Gaga will perform a young Michelle Obama.
Meant for each other? Or just another Hollywood lesbian fashion dream?
OMG. What a horrible outfit & nasty hair! This is the mistress of former Democratic candidate John Edwards, the smooth talker until recently married to the lady with cancer. Miss Rielle Hunter declares to GQ magazine that their love is real, and she’s helping him “live the truth.” The only part of this photo that is *not* offensive is the baby’s purple “ugly” doll.
A quick review of her Wikipedia page reminds me that she is the former girlfriend of brat pack author Jay McInerney, and the inspiration for the coke-devouring character Alison Poole, in his 1988 “Story of My Life.” The Huffington Post describes the fictional lady as follows: “Alison isn’t easy to like. When we first meet her, she’s an STD-carrying slut who cons her latest lover into giving her money by telling him she needs an abortion.”
Where is the dignity of America’s ruling class? Maybe her visibility is a plot to make Obama look better. Thank heavens for Michelle Obama.
Breaking with tradition, Hatoyama Miyuki, wife of Japan’s new PM, plans to take a visible role as Japan’s First Lady. Frankly, I had never seen a photo of Mrs Aso, Mrs Fukuda, Mrs Abe or Mrs Koizumi. So it’s revolutionary news that Japan may be on the cusp of welcoming its first First Lady.
What do we know about Miyuki-sama? She was born in China during the war, a former actress, cookbook author, television personality, and a “life composer.” She believes she shares “a sensibility” with Michelle Obama, and hopes to meet her. Mostly, she is a tireless promoter of her husband, with Wikipedia reporting that she chooses her husband’s outfits and (personally?) styles his hair.
My favorite story so far is how she explains her husband’s “alien” nickname. According to the loyal wife, he was given the name by political adversaries since he is so different from old-style politics. Unh, really?! I thought it was because he’s extraordinarily ugly, with a weird-shaped head on a smallish body. And it’s certainly better than being referred to as “the guy with the dead fish face.”
But, Miyuki-sama, please do not let me discourage your spin, conjugal devotion, or quest for the limelight. Finally, with the (first?) emergence of a First Lady of Japan, this is Japanese “change” that I fully support. Bring on the outfits, social causes, cultural activities, and style.
Update: A second Japan Times article adds even more outrageous details. Miyuki-sama is a former singer and dancer in the very popular Takarazuka Revue all-female theater troupe. And she has a spiritual side that puts Shirley MacLain to shame. She has written in a book that, while sleeping, her soul flew in a triangle shaped UFO to Venus. On a television program, she also claimed that she eats the sun, and that it gives her “enormous energy.” Even better, she added, “My husband has recently started doing that, too.” Oh, and she met Tom Cruise in a previous life, claims he was previously Japanese, and dreams of making a Hollywood movie with him.
It must be wonderful to be so fabulously wealthy, and to live in a country where such outlandish views are neither questioned nor ridiculed. Dearest husband, please make me Japan’s next First Lady!
Second Update: There’s also a New York Times article with the exact same content, plus some angry online reader replies and many replies by the reporter. Plus this amazing photo of the Hatoyamas as a young couple What happened to his looks? Can I buy her wig? And why has no one commented on this EXCITING news?!
Mrs O’s tour of Europe has been a triumph for the new America. Here she is wearing a Junya Watanabe asymetrical cardigan over a Jason Wu dress with the British PM’s wife. The fashion victor is clear.
Michelle makes us proud to be vaguely North American. Jackie, your heir has arrived!
Mrs O looks stunning in London ahead of the G-20 meeting. Bright and sparkling, she’s the image of spring. When is she coming to Tokyo? Here it is cold, with thunder, lightening and the possibility of “wintery mix” or slush overnite . .
Dorothy, I think we’re in Camelot!
Not to mix metaphors too much, but arriving in the United States after the election has been startling. A hot First Lady, and a liberation regime! No more torture, anti-family crusading, pro-pollution policies?!
Economic disaster, political corruption and American religious fervor will certainly constrain the new government’s actions. Still, this regime change is dramatic and captivating.

Thanks, Ericthefez, for the photo and link for this post. Michelle, you have charmed everyone!
OMG. What a wonderful dress. Welcome, new First Lady, Michelle Obama. It’s going to be a fierce 4 to 8 years.
Does anyone know who designed the dress? It’s very Mark Rothko, and totally unlike the typical power-suit (see Mrs Biden to her right for an example of that tired look). I am ready for c-h-a-n-g-e.
Laura, don’t let the door hit you on the way out. And, Cindy, I hope you can medicate yourself into happiness as a private citizen.
