The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Wisconsin Congressman Says Michelle Obama Has A “Large Posterior,” Kris Jenner Denies Sweatshop Allegations, and Christian Louboutin to Open Men’s Store
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

• In SMH news, overweight Wisconsin congressman Jim Sensenbrenner is coming under fire for comments he made about First Lady Michelle Obama.

He was overheard on the phone making remarks about the First Lady’s “Let’s Move” initiative, saying, “She lectures us on eating right while she has a large posterior herself.” Head, meet desk. (Huff Post)

Ivanka Trump has seven business days to remove her “Cadie” wedge sandal from store shelves at the request of a cease and desist letter written by Derek Lam‘s people, who claim the shoe is a knockoff of  his Ayami sandals. Trump’s wedge, which sells from $150, compared to the hefty $780 price tag Lam’s carries, is almost identical to the Ayami sandal, and Lam’s people fear consumers will be confused by the stark similarities. I think they’re more concerned that people will realize they can buy the same shoe for a cheaper price. (WWD)

• As expected, Kris Jenner is adamantly denying allegations that clothing and accessory lines under the Kardashian names are produced in Chinese sweatshops. She claims the man in charge of the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights has no proof to back up these accusations, and is prepared to take legal action against Star magazine for running the story. Whether or not these factories are guilty of what the IGLHR says remains to be seen, but if they indeed are, as I said yesterday, I doubt Kris Jenner was aware. (TMZ)

• After opening a men’s boutique in Paris this summer, Christian Louboutin is setting his sights stateside, opening up another men’s store in New York City. The store will open this spring in the Meatpacking District on Washington Street between Horatio and Gansevoort Streets.  (WWD)

• Gentlemen, let Joan Smalls style you. The top model talks to Mr. Porter about the sartorial choices she’d like to see more men take. She also reveals her distaste for sagging jeans: “When your butt is hanging out, I don’t think that looks sexy at all. I mean, whatever floats your boat, but it doesn’t float mine.” Take note, fellas. If you want to float Joan’s boat, pull up your pants! (Mr. Porter)

    Funny thing is the congressman who made those comments about Michelle Obama is actually overweight himself. smh.

  2. Savage says:

    The question is “Is he bragging or complaining?”

  3. Dom says:

    Same thing with Rush Limbaugh, who made similar comments about Michelle as well. The both need to take a seat.

  4. jasmine says:

    michelle looks good! allow me to show you to your seat!

  5. Crystal says:

    I guess it all depends on what brand you copy because just about everything in the stores is an imitation of a higher end. Maybe the brands that get knocked off ALL of the time, CL, YSL, Gucci, Balenciaga, etc just don’t bother with legal action because it happens to them so frequently. Or maybe we just don’t hear about it.

    You need to understand something boo…a black woman can be lean, healthy and in shape and still have what you consider a large posterior, because we just got it like that. Okaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay.

  6. Afrikka! says:

    I’m from wisconsin & most (mainly Milwaukees) of our politications r dbags…she looks good to me!

  7. Caribbelle says:

    First of all the FLOTUS’s posterior will be 10 times as bad a** and fabulous than that troll even on her worst day. Chi… severalll seats!!

  8. Sticky-n-Sweet says:

    Well, she IS Black, that would explain why…hater. Glad I’m not the President, I would have had a “moment”

  9. katie says:

    She’s black fool! What do you expect her to have? We can’t all have flat booties like Beckies do. Keep it moving loser.

  10. shelly says:

    I swear…some white people can be so ignorant *smh*. Sometimes its natural, and other times, its muscle. Heck, I’ve seen plenty of non-black athletes with big posteriors BECAUSE they work out and are fit. Ugh, some people just need to go back to school and start over again, or take some diversity classes or something. Sheesh.

  11. cheese says:

    congress people can be so nasty. :(

  12. SideEye Mimi says:

    Congressmen don’t want anything to do with it because they probably benefit from these places (fast food) giving them donations, and nobody wants to invest in our children these days, but wonder why the kids are running around acting the hell up. I’m about tired of the Kardashian clan constantly being in anything these days. Kim Really messed up this time, thats why i know it’s she didn’t do that on purpose, now people are about to start boycotting her and the family lol. Ivanka’s Line copies a LOT of shoe designers!

  13. sun.kissed says:

    Ivanka can send me a pair of those shoes in a size 7, thanks!

  14. Mrs Obama is a beautiful statuesque 6ft tall woman! That congressman is just mad he couldnt pull a good woman like her and has to settle for “high class” streetwalkers.

    I dont believe a word that comes out of Kris Jenner’s mouth. She will say anything to protect her brand.

  15. Kay says:

    Any woman, black or not, who is that lean up top and heavier on the bottom is generally NOT in danger of heart disease, high blood pressure, or type II diabetes- all diseases that the FLOTUS’s initiative is trying prevent. Even if it were appropriate to comment on a woman’s body in such a way, his statement was completely baseless.

  16. Starla says:

    Am I the only person who does not see this big butt he is talking about? She has a rounded butt, but it is nowhere close to being considered big. Go on with your healthy eating and lifestyle initiative Mrs Obama, a healthy nation is a strong nation.

  17. joy says:

    doesn’t come as a surprise to me. we all know how white folks love them some boyish bodieson their womens.

    *cough pedo*

  18. Siyam says:

    LOVED The article on Joan Smalls. Her style is amazing and I loved her comments. I also like how she styled her own agent for the shoot. It’s nice to see the models being stylists more often :) That’s why I voted her model of the year!

  19. Brandi says:

    i want to know what Barack said with him talkin about his wife like that! Yea she has a butt, and what! She looks great!

  20. Dooodooo says:

    He’s just jealous that he can’t squeeze it for free anymore because let’s face it that’s what these white dudes did in slavery which is why all us African Americans look the way we do. They “hated” black people but they loved sleeping with us. Dammn hyppocrytes

  21. Free2BS says:

    I’ve never heard such comments from a congressman about the First Lady! HELLO. You just made because you can’t ever in life have a woman like her. Speaking of ass, he is really showing HIS. Good luck with that, sport.
