  • I wondered how she was keeping warm enough. I wondered this about several of the ladies. I wondered if they had some light thermal underwear on, although it couldn't have been anything bulky. Maybe the excitement kept them from thinking about the cold.

  • I would have been shocked if she had worn leather. Her coat was beautiful and practical, wool lined with silk.... doesn't get much warmer on a cold day ... unless you wear fur which would have had the PETA people up in arms as much as leather (animal hide) would have. The first lady has to consider all the angles.

  • If she had worn leather, all you would have heard were the complaints from animal rights activists.

  • Her fashion sense - or lack thereof drives me NUTS. The boxy, structured, overly ornate fabrics on someone who's pear shaped just aren't flattering. I would love to see her in something more flowing in maybe burgundy, slate or charcoal shades rather than looking like she just fell out of Oprahs cast off pile.

    I would have been surprised to see her in leather because it's so out of line with what she's worn so far.
