That Same Tuxedo For 8 Years!

Cute story: Speaking at an event this week former first lady, Michelle Obama, pointed out how ‘unfair’ it was that in the 8 years at the White House, she always had to come up with new looks, while her husband — former president Barack Obama — got away with basically wearing the same thing to different events. At a conference in San Jose, California, Michelle was asked about a picture that had gone viral, of herself in a black gown standing next to her husband in his tried-and-true black tux (she, adjusting his bow tie). “This is the unfair thing, you talk about Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, no matter what we do, he puts on that same tux,” she said. “People take pictures of the shoes I wear, the bracelets, the necklace. They didn’t comment that for eight years, he wore that same tux, same shoes.” The former First Lady said that President Obama  would tease her about how easy it was for him to get ready for his formal events, that he was “proud” of his repeat outfits: “He was like, ‘Hm I’m ready. I’m ready in ten minutes. How long did it take you?’” she told the crowd. “And I’m like, ‘Get out of here.’”
