Barack Obama Rescue Michelle From A Marilyn Monroe’s Moment


America’s First Lady Michelle Obama almost  a major wardrobe malfunction while boarding Air Force One on a blustery morning in Texas. But luckily for Michelle, President Barack Obama was swift enough to protect her flying skirt from having a Marilyn Monroe’s moment on her, just like the Duchess of Cambridge has had many of them.

The first lady was wearing a pleated navy skirt and a matching jacket at Place2Be, a London-based anti-bullying charity when the wind became intense for her skirt to handle.

The first lady’s skirt was seen flying above and almost about to reveal too much for the public eye. But President Obama saved Michelle from some potentially very embarrassing moment and photos by gently placing his hand over his wife’s bottom and flying skirt. So, the President saved the day and the First Lady ended up not having the famous and iconic Marilyn Monroe moment in which her gorgeous white dress was seen flying in the air.

The moment recalled the recent wardrobe malfunction suffered by the Duchess of Cambridge when she disembarked her flight in Wellington, New Zealand, earlier this week for her royal tour with Prince William and their infant son Prince George. And the Duchess has had several of such moments. See some of the photos below.

See Catherine Middleton in two more  photos that she almost suffered a wardrobe malfunction. In the first photo, the Duchess of Cambridge had a wardrobe malfunction as she arrived at a forum for the charity Place2Be. In the second image, it was as result of a windy runway at Calgary Airport. Kate wore a specially designed Jenny Packham primrose yellow shift dress during her tour of Canada.
