I understand that Michelle dresses down in order for the voters not to believe that the Obamas' wallet is fashion deep, but then again so does Barack. Only that he is classy and she is far from it. Thank God that Jill Biden has much better fashion sense.
And this has nothing to do about triviality of fashion. It has to do with aesthetics. Jill not only has good taste - marrying Biden proves the point as he is the best groomed politician and a very classy gentleman - but her choice of her sensual red gown was a clear political choice. The gown was created by Libanese designer Reem Acra. Michelle can definitely do better than what she does. Classy does not mean expensive. It can mean beautiful, smart, sensual and as Jill dared us, political. As far as to what the political message was, I leave it to you to connect the dots :-)
