    Wow! FLOTUS look stunning in that gown! Is she stooping in the second picture so she doesn’t appear too tall? LOL! The Indian media seems fascinated with her stature. I’ve been watching some of the coverage, and they’re totally charmed by her and are in awe of her height. 🙂

    “They [Obamas] came. We saw. She conquered.” That’s what they’ve been saying about Michelle. Is America proud or are they going to find something new to attack her and her husband with – AGAIN?!

    Stunning, classy, sexxiii POTUS and our gorgeous FLOTUS, we are a lucky nation. Even our “little” 🙂 delegation cleans up nicely. I love all of these underdogs so much.

    Oh My God!!! Michelle looks absolutely gorgeous. She does it so effortlessly. That is because she has so much natural beauty and anything extra just makes her stand out. She is WEARING that dress and her is fierce and the makeup is perfect. I know that our President is so proud of her. He is just cool as a cucumber and always looks poised and polished.
