Michelle Watch: It’s A Bob!

-------

Those J.Crew cardi sets and the Jason Wu inaugural gown may have made headlines, but this right here is front-page news if we’ve ever seen it: The First Lady has appeared to cut her hair, foregoing the increasingly popular “lob” in favor of a shorter, more conservative version of Posh Spice’s early trips to the chopping block. While the look becomes the First Lady (there are few things that couldn’t), we are a little disappointed with what seems to be a move toward the more traditional style of Capitol Hill, which mandates tight, side-swept crops with little movement. We would’ve added some choppy layers to her shoulder-length hair but, hey, that’s just us. You?

    Are you sure? It looks pulled back to me…

  2. jgalinski says:

    But looks pretty regardless!

    Michelle looks great to me. I think its an improvement considering her last hair style.

  4. heatherfoster1 says:

    It looks more like a nod to Princess Diana than mere conservatism. She does have the statuesque figure to pull that off.

    Even if it’s pulled back, it’s still super chic and feels fresh. It’s like the White House version of the Rihanna ‘do.
