Oh wow. The Daily Beast asked a bunch of former Project Runway Designers to to design an inaugural ball gown for Michelle Obama. With a few caveats:

For this challenge, they were only allowed to use Laura Bush’s 2005 Inaugural Ball dress, to be chopped up and repurposed, à la Pretty in Pink; an American flag; burlap potato sacks; and $10 worth of trims of their choice.

You can imagine how well this went. Austin Scarlett, Malan Breton, and Leanne Marshall had some nice ideas. The rest... well, as Christian Siriano would say, it's a hot tranny mess. Extra demerits to Rami Kashou and Mychal Knight because their shit just looks trashy and there is no way Mrs. O (already coined "Blackie O" by the fashion community) would be caught dead in that tacky shit.

Jezebel looked through the designer's actual work for some better alternatives. Personally I think Mrs. O. would look drop dead gorgeous in that sky blue Leanne gown. GET ON THE PHONE, LEANNE.

You're an idiot! Have some sensible criticism instead of just some immature rant!
but then again today a 5 year old can become a blogger just to get a crumble of recognition.. when they aren't really doing anything at all..

No, actually ... you're an idiot! Livejournals and other formats like it are about personal space and opinion, as long as the LJ Account Holder conforms to the rules of conduct set up by that service. But then again, even with your false bravado and critical nature ... atleast have the Balls to step up and level your commentary like an Adult. It's not so amazing to see how some people have Internet Courage when they can post with anonymity.

Bravo! Now grow a pair.

Now now, don't waste your time replying to anonymous posters like this one. It only gives them the attention they crave.

After all, they are willing to critique others' opinions but aren't confident enough to even associate their own words with an identity.

Really they're just rather pathetic, treat them like the spastic colons of opinion that they are.
