'Golden Girl' Michelle Obama Is 'A Ray of Sunshine'

Good grief, can the fawning get any worse?

Seriously folks, she's a work in progress, and it's going to take a lot of work. Can we stop pretending she's a cross between Halle Berry and Beyonce?

If you want a more realistic portrayal, here you go.

More reality here.
The utter lack of ooh-ing and ah-ing over Michelle Obama's inauguration wear should tell you something. It was bad.

She's worn beautiful things in the past. I tend to think saturated, jewel tones (royal purple, forest green, dark teal, deep orange) look great on her. That split-pea/yellow color she wore earlier today, however, is impossible for 95 percent of women to carry off. I'd say Michelle is included in that number. She sure does seem to like that chartreuse-y tone, though. The famous JCrew outfit she wrote on Jay Leno has the same color scheme.

If that particular hue becomes a crayola crayon, I think it should be named "sour sunshine."
