2009 Maxim Hot 100 on the right track with Michelle Obama

May 4, 2009

This is where the blog first took it’s turn as a step away from the childish toys of our youth, but not quite towards our fathers Vitalis…

The Maxim Top 100 is a list of the most beautiful women that have caught our eye.  The First Lady has managed to crack the list with a grace and beauty that captivated the masses.

She broke on the list in position #93…

The First Lady is No. 93. according to Philly.com.

Yesterday, Maxim magazine released the first 10 names on its annual “eyeball-searing, fantasy-fulfilling, brain-exploding” Hot 100, and there, between an “awesome Aussie” TV star and a “mind-blowingly sexy” supermodel was Michelle Obama.

Yes, the one in the White House.

What’s she doing in such a “stimulus package”?

Well, Maxim says its knows a “political bombshell” when it sees one, pledging its allegience to “the hottest First Lady in the history of these United States. (Sorry, Martha Washington!)”

This is a lot better than all the discussion Michelle’s footwear has brought. This is what the LA Times is speculating on, instead of worrying about their financial future

First Lady Michelle Obama, who’s become quite the fashion role model with her J.Crew wear and buff-arm-spotlighting sleeveless frocks, is under scrutiny for what she wore on her feet the other day.

They’re trendy Lanvin sneakers. Which look really nice and comfy and all. Trouble is, they cost $540. If you can find a pair anywhere.

And, of course, if you’ve got $540, plus — what? — 9 or 10% tax in some places. Which seems like a lot for two shoes not guaranteed to benefit your jump shot.

So, if she was a basketball player, her footwear would be okay? She can spend that on a pair of Jordans, but no other brand?  Do you know how much a nice pair of comfortable dress shoes cost for men?  Exactly… People need to get over themselves.  Shoes are not an issue and this post further proves that. While we would disagree on Palin’s (more to me Republican issue of spending campaign contributions on fashion, not that she wore any one thing) clothes and MO’s clothes, this shouldn’t be an issue

The other trouble is that — wait for it — she wore them to a poverty event, a Capitol Area Food Bank for Feeding America to provide much appreciated help and publicity to benefit the food bank.

Mrs. Obama  also has gone to serve a lunch hour at soup kitchens in Washington, where an unidentified presumably homeless person showed up with a camera cellphone to capture Mrs. Obama, who kindly posed for the man.

We have a video review below of Michelle Obama’s first 100 days too.

The sharp-eyed Amy Diluna was first to spot the first lady footwear contradiction here.

Sharp-memoried politics readers will recall all the positive attention Mrs. Obama garnered during the presidential campaign for her everyday, every-woman $150 dresses from Black & White Market.

While Cindy McCain, John’s wealthy wife, and some woman from Alaska both attracted negative attention for their expensive clothing, some of it reputedly borrowed.

(FYI, Michelle Obama is a Democrat. The other two women are Republicans. But what could that have to do with anything?)

Diluna also notes about Mrs. Obama: “A week ago, she shoveled dirt at a tree planting while wearing the line’s chiffon tank. Dresses and strappy pumps cost upward of $1,500, while tops go for $400 to $1,000.” An online poll by the N.Y. Daily news finds 59% think the shoe choice was in poor taste for a poverty event.

Now, the video below.

How many of them actually voted?  So, the lady goes to help out at a soup kitchen and you are worried about what shoes she is wearing?  This is trying too hard, or as my kids in Richmond used to say, “You are doing too much….”

Just behind Obama at 94 was Yvonne Strahovski, the Down Under actress who costars in NBC’s Chuck.

Who knew that some show nobody watches would get me shine?

And just ahead at 92 was “blonde and Polish” supermodel Joanna Krupa, star of some sizzling PETA ads.

The countdown continues today, with numbers 81 to 90, at Maxim.com.

    Michelle has beauty, smarts, grace, and style. Finding a woman with 2 of these is a big chore. Haters.
    When people ask my ideal woman I say MO. Now get out of my way.
