Something's off here...
Since she became first lady of the United States, Michelle Obama has graced countless number of magazine covers, featuring various fashionable looks — but her latest cover fashion is making the biggest splash yet.
If this is indeed a true cover... this unauthorized and altered photo of the first lady is the latest cover of Magazine de Fuera de Serie, a Spanish Magazine.
The cover has superimposed the face of the first lady over an 1800 painting, “Portrait d’une négresse,” by French artist Marie-Guillemine Benoist. The artwork depicts a female French slave in a white gown and head scarf, with one bared breast.
The image is a photoshopped version and although the gesture was meant to be a positive nod to Obama's public persona, lots of people just aren't feeling the "new look."
The magazine used the photo to run alongside a story about Obama's popularity and strength in the White House, stating,
"Behind every great man there is a great woman."While the Spaniards may understand their own message behind the image, it doesn't look like Americans are having it.
The White House said it had no immediate comment on the issue.
What do you think, is the photo of the first lady appropriate.... Artistic or offensive?
