Kelly Clarkson shows Michelle Obama that she’s a Debutante at America Celebrates July 4 at Ford Theatre| July 2, 2010 at 9:52 PM EDT
With the wrong outfit, your song will be completely overshadowed. This is true even after you win American Idol. Oh, Kelly Clarkson. What went wrong?
Why was a debutante at a festive funeral the inspiration for this outfit?
Kelly Clarkson was one of the first performances for ABC’s America Celebrates July 4 at Ford’s Theatre. She sang the Nikka Costa song, “Everybody got their something.” The song is a fun one (always reminds me of this Buffy fanvid) but it was hard not to be distracted by the dress Clarkson wore. When you are a curvy girl, extra fabric that is tight to your entire figure, with a high neckline, is a very bad idea. This is not a criticism of Clarkson’s body, this is a criticism of her dress choice. And it’s also a criticism of her stylist. Who thought that looked good? Why was a debutante at a festive funeral the inspiration for this outfit?
Modern Family star Ty Burrell hosted the event. Soprano Renee Flemming performed a huh-worthy version of the Death Cab for Cutie song “Soul Meets Body.” Michelle Obama was in attendance.
