A fashion designer has revealed that Oprah Winfrey and Michelle Obama have both chosen identical gowns for Barack's Presidential swearing in ceremony.
"Of course they were unaware that they had both chosen the same style complete with matching tiaras and we chose not to reveal each other's picks".
When confronted by the paparazzi about this avoidable fashion faux pas, the spokesperson responded angrily:
"May I remind you that we are haute couture - not off-the-rack. Although the dresses are the same style; same fabric and same color with identical accessories - it is the wearer who makes it special. Michelle is tall and angular and will look like a corn dog on a stick with dollops of mustard whereas Oprah's will be a rounder, fuller skirt with twice as much material - more like a super-size dish of creme caramel with lots of hazelnut flavored whipping cream on top".
Meanwhile the seamstress was being held on unspecified charges although word on the street is that she sold the design to Wallmart which plans to put out knock-off copies at under $100 for all Oprah-Michelle groupies!.
