Guess who's finally OUT!

The Old Error:

For six hours, a giant Bush with a "Pinocchio" nose was the target of thousands of shoes as people in DC for the inauguration took turns throwing footwear at the likeness of the president. ( details here )

The new Era:

Michell in Isabel Toledo and choos

Jason Wu!

First couple looking very much in love as they dance to beyonce

I personally did not like the yellow dress, regardless of its symbolism of "hope", it kinda looked bulky and mm BOXY. The white off the shoulder dress looks amazing on her.. "How good looking is my wife?" was the first thing Obama said at the inauguration ball.. She did look fabulous indeed!

The Speech:

"This is the meaning of our liberty and our creed -- why men and women and children of every race and every faith can join in celebration across this magnificent Mall, and why a man whose father less than 60 years ago might not have been served at a local restaurant can now stand before you to take a most sacred oath."

(that was a very touching part)

"To the Muslim world, we seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect. To those leaders around the globe who seek to sow conflict, or blame their society's ills on the West: Know that your people will judge you on what you can build, not what you destroy. To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history; but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist."

(full speech Here )

Perhaps there is hope after all..

Time will only tell..

- to historical moments x

the white dress WAS nic!
let's hope this guy's better than his predecessor!

One of Obamas best characteristics is that he seems to have a kind heart, which the pervious president lacked. Lets hope some good will come out of this, and some change will happen after every disaster that occurred since bush took presidency.

How sweet! :)

you're right the yellow dress was a bad choice

Fastidious Babe said...

Mi: yeah it pretty much resonated everywhere..

Livingmylife: ow, good question!

Delly: yeah well.. i think he mentioned something about standing up and dusting off their trousers and reshaping america.. he really sounded motivated and ready to face the challenges!

sadia: yeah me too..

Maitha: bush lacked a brain too.. lets wait n see!

Fashionista: wasnt a fan of the matching coat either!

I hope that love is what's keeping them together. About her gown, it was certainly not the most flattering gown she could have worn. I hated it. lol too much negative energy today what's up with me.
