Who does not like the First Lady?!?!?!

My criticism of the First Lady has little to do with her fashion sense (which is hit or miss, I think), but this exchange between the New York Times and famous designer Vivienne Westwood is revealing:

Q. You must love our first lady, who is famous for recycling her clothes.

A. Don’t talk about her. It’s dreadful what she wears.

Q. What?

A. I don’t want to talk about it. Really, I can’t. She’s a very nice looking lady, but it’s a nonstarter regarding clothes that suit her. Jackie Kennedy was a different matter altogether. It just has to suit her and be something that makes a human being more glamorous. That’s what fashion is there for. It’s there to help, not just to make you look more conservative.

I don’t think Westwood is a right-winger or anything, but the presumption that “You must love our First Lady” and the follow-up “What?” is hilarious to me.  The commenters in the Politico piece immediately start criticizing Westwood’s looks in their defense of the First Lady.
