Oh, the Obamas have got me. I’m in love. When Barack shouted out, “How good looking is my wife?” I was mighty, mighty pleased. I was feeling it. Right here. In the gullet.
No jokes here, folks. That was LOVE in their eyes, people! And it is nothing but beautiful.
The dress — I kind of liked it. Sure, the fuzzy-wuzzies were a little odd, but the cut was pretty. It was unusual, interesting. Soft. Sweeping. Elegant. Very, very “femme.” The dress was made by Jason Wu, a 26-year-old Taiwanese American designer.
Beyonce wasn’t half bad either, although Papa Snob (an unabashed Etta James fan) griped that Beyonce’s voice was “too clean” to do a servicable rendition of “At Last.” Picky, picky. But she managed to not over-sing it, so for me, that was an accomplishment in itself.
