The former President of the United States, Barack Obama wore the same tux and shoes for all the eight years of his presidency during state dinners, Michelle Obama has said.
Speaking on Tuesday at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, California, Michelle said while she photographed and scrutinized year in and year out for the dresses and accessories she wore for state dinners as they were highly publicized events, her husband wore the same tux and shoes to state dinners–of course, without anyone even noticing it.
‘This is the unfair thing — you talk about Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers — no matter what we do, he puts on that same tux,’ she said.
‘Now, people take pictures of the shoes I wear, the bracelets, the necklace — they didn’t comment that for eight years he wore the same tux, same shoes.’
She continued, ‘And he was proud of it too. He’s like, ‘Mmm, I’m ready. I’m ready in 10 minutes. How long did it take you?’ I’m like, ‘Get out of here.’ ‘
