I have a friend in New York who, every time we speak on the telephone goes into a rant about Michelle Obama baring her arms. She goes on and on about protocol, what's appropriate and what is utterly inappropriate. (I'm often tempted to go on and on about a subject I find utterly boring, but I fear it would be a friendship breaker.)
Here follows a petit exposé on the subject. No matter where one stands on this earth-shaking, world changing, potential mores modifying subject you have to admit these are some pretty fabulous looking appendages.
Oh, btw the French describe the three ladies' styles as: Jackie, elegant; Carla, sober (that's after she became France's First Lady obviously) and Michelle, audacious.
Without further comment, you be the judge.
