FLOTUS remembers the criticisms she received after wearing Bermuda shorts on vacation.
Michelle Obama has become such a style icon, it's hard to imagine the first lady having a fashion misstep while in office. During a recent visit to 106 & Park, Obama revealed her biggest regret since moving to the White House, which was wearing Bermuda shorts during a family vacation back in 2009. There was so much buzz about the fact that she was seen leaving Air Force One in the "offensive" attire that FLOTUS wishes it'd never happened.
"Sometimes I forget I'm the first lady and I'm running around in shorts," she said.
"It created a huge stink because people were like, 'She's wearing shorts getting off of Air Force One.'"
She admits she didn't think much of the fashion choice because the family was on vacation, but insists that you won't catch her wearing shorts on Air Force One again. Frankly, we think it was all a big fuss about nothing, plus her forgetting that she's the first lady of the United States and just dressing down when she feels like it makes us love her even more.
