For the past two days the world media has been abuzz with how Michelle Obama has set the fashion trends at the G20. True to the expectation, she made it a point to show us more than two outfits a day. The whole world was caught in a frenzy and heaped praises on her taste. Designers were even falling over each other to dress her. But that will not happen in Africa. On BBC World News today, angry messages were being hurled at Cameroons first lady because she dresses well. People were apparently disgusted that she is doing an overkill, and some even hated the way she does her hair. 2 first ladies doing exactly the same thing, but getting 2 different reactions.
Isnt there a credit crises in the US and shouldn`t Michelle Obama have been sympathetic to all those Americans who have lost their jobs too? Little food, for a little thought.
Enjoy your week end!
