Obama wore the same tuxedo for 8 yrs.

In a candid conversation recently, former First Lady of the US - Michelle Obama revealed that her husband and ex-POTUS Barack Obama wore the same tuxedo for eight years of his presidency without anyone noticing.

In doing so, she laid bare the sexist double standards of style - for she herself was scrutinized endlessly for every outfit she wore.

"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 said to thunderous applause from the audience at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in California, USA.

"You know, 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.
