Remember Michelle Obama’s first official portrait as first lady in 2009? The one where she wore a sleeveless black dress that got some conservatives really angry because she was baring her shoulders. That sort of criticism continued throughout her term as first lady, especially among right-wing voters. Most of this criticism carried racist and sexist undertones.
However, for a person whose fashion choices are a reflection of who she is, Michelle kept a deaf ear to the criticism.
Well, ever since the Obamas left office for incumbent Donald Trump, they have been spotted in different holiday destinations. The latest is Tuscany region, Italy where the two are currently having a good time if the photos going around are anything to go by.
All the attention is on Michelle however, who has been seen wearing and rocking attires that expose that body part that caused frenzy in the past. Her well toned shoulders have been on display in almost every photo from their recent holiday.
In one photo, she is wearing a pink top that bares her left shoulder. In another, she spots a white off-shoulder top that screams summer holiday. It looks like the former first lady is celebrating finally being able to bare her shoulders without any criticism. We don’t blame her. We would also show off our shoulders if they looked that well defined.
