Barbara and Jenna Bush

In the Inaugurations Ball this Thursday, the general public (aka us) finally got to see the much talked about gowns Badgley Mischka created for the First Daughters for this occasion.



After all the articles I read about them, I expected something fabulously amazing and special. But perhaps my expectations were just too high, because I was pretty disappointed when I finally saw it. Jenna Bush's emerald green dress indeed suits her complexion very well, but the cutting of the gown seemed to be lacking in shape. Barbara Bush's pale aquamarine dress was simple and elegantly cut, but the color seems to just emphasize her already pale complexion, especially paired with her very natural make up. So overall there was nothing really to make such a big fuss about.

Badley Mischka, based in NYC, was founded by designers Mark Badgley and James Mischka. It is known for its luxury evening wear sold in Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstorm. They've been named one of the "Top 10 American Designers" by Vogue and has dressed celebrities like Madonna, Halle Berry, Catherine Zeta- Jones, Jennifer Lopez, Sarah Jessica Parker and Ashley Judd. - Perhaps this was just not one of their best works?

I agree...there was so much hype over the dresses and then I saw the twins wearing them in person and just went, "What? That's it??" Plus, Barbara's dress doesn't look aquamarine, it looks like a light cream color.

Anyway, I think your site is fab- keep up the great work!

... and what was that oversized disaster on Mrs. Bush? You can get a girl out of Texas, but you can't get Texas out of her.

Thank you for the wonderful effort

إني تذكـرت والذكرى مؤرقـة *مجـداً تلـيدا بأيـدينا أضعـناه

أنَّى اتجهتَ للإسـلام في بـلـدٍ * تجْده كالطيرِ مقصـوصًا جناحـاه

كـم صرفتنا يـدٌ كنـا نـصرفها * وبات يـملكنا شعب مـلكناه

بالله سل خلف بحر الروم عن عرب * بالأمس كانوا هنا واليوم قد تاهوا

وانزل دمشق وسائل صخر مسجدها * عمن بناه لعل الـصخر ينعـاه

هذى معـالم خرس كـل واحـدة * منهن قامت خطيبـا فاغرا فـاه

الله يعلم ما قلبت سـيرتهم يومـا * وأخطـأ دمـع الـعين مـجراه

يا من يرى عمـراتكسوه بردته * الزيت أدمٌ لـه والكـوخ مـأواه

يهتز كسـرى على كرسيه فرقـا * من خوفه ، وملوك الروم تخشـاه

يا رب فابعث لنا من مثلهم نفـرا * يشـيدون لـنا مـجدا أضعنـاه
