Checkered past

Michelle Obama wears a teal Jason Wu dress with a funky assymetrical plaid Junya Watanabe cardigan and Jimmy Choo green pumps at the G-20 inauguration. We loved the British schoolgirl plaid effect. The British press was less enthused. The Daily Mail called it a garish golf-style argyle pattern embellished with yet more sequins. It also decried the higher cost of the cardigan. Can’t please everyone every day, huh, Michelle?
