Fashion Rant: Oscar de la Renta on Michelle Obama

I was reading on Vogue UK that Oscar de la Renta was blasting Michelle Obama because she was wearing some European designers while she was travelling overseas. You have got to be kidding me, right? Can he just sit down and shut up!!?? First of all, Michelle Obama has put quite a few AMERICAN designers on the map like Jason Wu, Isabel Toledo, Maria Pinto and J.Crew needs to give her some stock for all that she has done to help them stay out of financial trouble during these difficult times. What is he talking about? Is he really upset because she hasn't worn one of his gowns? Why would she? Don't get me wrong, Oscar is the man. But everybody and her momma wears de la Renta to every bloody red carpet event in the country. There is nothing special about that. What First Lady Michelle Obama seems to be doing is wearing something unique and memorable. I will admit that she had a few misses but very few. So First Lady, continue to do you no matter what. Oscar, you need to take a chill pill.
