Guillermo Mariotto, a fashion designer for the Gattinoni house in Italy has designed a kaftan with President Obama's face printed on it and another gown was dedicated to First Lady Michelle.
Yep, just as you can see here, our President has even inspired fashion designers! I think this is pretty cool, but a tad scary. In my opinion one must be able to express admiration, but I think that a President is something pop-culture shouldn't mess around with. I mean it's great to admire their style, their example as a wonderful family and to exalt them as what they are: the Nation's First Family. But bringing them down to "celebrity level" is not a very respectful thing to do.
Now my artistic side says it's a beautiful piece, wonderful blend of colors and beautiful movement, but at the same time I can't help comparing this to having Hannah Montana in a bunch of T-shirts at Wal-Mart.
So what do you think? Do you have split feelings like me, do you think the piece is stuning, or is it just plain wrong?
