Michelle Obama, before meeting Pope Benedict XVI and after
I know, her entourage is in the after shot, but I’m particularly interested in Michelle; while I don’t pay close attention, I was curious whether she would dress appropriately for a Vatican visit and she did.
It wasn’t clear to me in the initial photos that she was wearing a jacket and dress but I thought something looked a little off. It looks better without the jacket.
I don’t like the bow. At all.
After further consideration, perhaps she took Mantilla the Hon as her role model but couldn’t find the big comb to elevate the mantilla?
More likely than that? A photo of Jackie Kennedy with Pope John XXIII. It appears that her veil goes below her waist. I still think shoulder-length would have been fine.
