Awesome in every way. Michelle looks continental and gorgeous.

bankruptcy, and bankrupt story

Lynn:
Where did Prez and Mrs. Obama stay in London and Strasbourg? Where are they staying Prague? Can't find this anywhere. Not released for security? Thanks.

I'll bet the lovely Mme. Sarkozy knows enough to wear hosiery, for formal public appearances. As a former supermodel, she knows enough not to appear as if she fell off of a turnip truck, when being presented as the First Lady of La Belle France, to visitors. Chic...muted...understated...rich.

Paula, if First Lady Michele Obama in your assessment seems to have fallen off a turnip truck, there are a plethora of women who are riding that same truck.

Remember, our American First Lady is an economic boost to the clothing industry, considering what she wears sells out in no time flat.

Do you think Mme. Carla Bruni-Sarkozy attire is selling out a particular clothing item any where? Sans hosiery or not!!
