“A sleeveless dress never looked so good.” That’s how Instyle Magazine, an online magazine on fashion updates, described First Lady Michelle Obama who together with her husband hosted Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his wife Ho Ching to a state dinner at the White House.

The magazine said: “For the historic occasion, the 52-year-old wowed in a brilliant yellow Naeem Khan dress that featured intricate floral appliqué, a sleeveless halter-style neckline, and semi-sheer hemline. She paired the winning frock with a matching leather belt, nude heeled sandals, and emerald green statement earrings.” (http://www.instyle.com/news/michelle-obama-yellow-sleeveless-dress-white-house)

Netizens were quick to point out the difference in dressing between Obama’s wife and Hsien Loong’s.

The netizen was referring to another recent official meeting which Madam Ho Ching attended with her husband, in Malaysia, to sign the High Speed Rail project agreement.

Others like aesthetics doctor and Save our Street Dogs founder, Dr Siew Tuck Wah thought that the fashion magazine was kind to only celebrate Michelle’s get-up, and keep silent about Ho Ching.

Dr Siew said: “Its a historic occasion for Singapore Prime minister Lee and wife Ho Ching to be invited to the White House. But while first lady Michelle Obama made headlines with a Naeen Khan bright yellow floral dress, Ho Ching really could have chose something, well, more cheery.”

“We need to get a stylist for her please,” he added.
