Shots Fired: Joan Rivers Hates Michelle Obama’s Bangs

The First Lady’s new haircut was the talk of the inaugural festivities, and even President Obama himself has weighed in. Michelle welcomed her husband to the stage at the National Building Museum in DC Monday night with the declaration,

“Our President for the next four years, Barack Obama. Love you!”


In turn, the President said:

“I love Michelle Obama. And to address the most significant event of this weekend, I love her bangs!”

He added, “She looks good. She always looks good.”

With just a few snips, Michelle has already set the trend for a fashionable second term. On stage Inauguration night, she wore a stunning black sequined Michael Kors cocktail dress that she first wore in 2009 for a dinner at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute in DC. And while some of us are yelling praises about the First Lady Michelle Obama’s bangs….others aren’t feeling them at all. Joan Rivers, who is arguably one of the toughest fashion critics in the biz today, had some words for FLOTUS’ new ‘do. She tweeted:


“Today starts President Obama’s next four years in the White House, Let’s hope the same isn’t true about the First Lady’s new hairdo.”

Rivers’ negative comments pale to the amount of approval our First Lady received for her bangs. “E! News” called them “flawless,” and the “LA Times” described the new look as a “glamorous sleek pageboy featuring bangs.” Is there anyone out there that agrees with Joan Rivers’ comments?
