You have been on the campaign trail with your husband for almost two years.
You know that you are photographed everywhere you go.
You know your every move is scrutinized and talked about.
You know weeks in advance that, based on the numbers, your husband is probably going to be elected the 44th president of the United States of America
You know this is an historic election and the entire world is following it.
You know you have “handlers” and “image consultants” who can help you.
So why make this phone call?
“Hello? Narciso Rodriguez? Michelle Obama here. I’d like something special for election night. Do you have a really fugly dress that will make me look like a Black Widow spider up on stage? You do? Perfect! I’ll take it!”
OK, I’m not the only one who is thinking the dress is strange. It’s got a love it or hate it thing going for it already.
