First Ladies showing some skin

jackieowarhol

This morning’s Today Show had Matt Lauer discussing Michelle Obama’s legs and the appropriateness of the First Lady wearing shorts. Yes, sadly, this is news. But wait a minute Mr. Newscaster. Mrs. Obama is not the first First Lady to show some skin. Some have shown even more.

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was a style icon. She was always appropriate and always impeccably dressed. She had class and old-school glamor. So it is shocking that this week researchers sifting through box upon box of “junk” collected by Andy Warhol found an autographed poster of the former First Lady. Yes, in the nude.

The poster was of a paparazzi image that got in the hands of “Larry Flynt, who turned it into a poster for his porn magazine, Hustler. Jackie O sent a copy – likely as a joke – to Warhol.”

Obviously, Jackie O was comfortable with her body. You’d think the mainstream press would be OK with a little leg shown by Michelle Obama.
