Iran doesn’t play when it comes to women guarding their modesty. Some Muslim women practice the longstanding tradition of covering their bodies and hair under layers of material. Other Muslim women just cover their hair while wearing non-traditional clothing like their American sisters.
Iran’s state-run news agency was faced with a dilemma this morning when they saw the “slutty” silvery sleeveless dress that First Lady Michelle Obama wore during her surprise appearance on the Academy Awards.
The news agency digitally altered the first lady’s dress to show her wearing sleeves — and they blurred the entire image almost beyond recognition to make it hard for Iranians to tell that there are two females dressed like men standing behind her.
MSNBC NOW has more after the break.
Poor Iran. It’s bad enough that pretty boy Ben Affleck’s heroic CIA mega-flick about the U.S. hostage crisis in Tehran won the Oscar for best picture on Sunday night. But then the flippin’ first lady turns up to present it — IN A SLUTTY DRESS?! Talk about adding insult to injury. The state news agency in the Islamic Republic did its best to do damage control on the offensive gown the morning after, digitally adding fake sleeves onto the bare-shouldered dress — which it called a “transgression” — worn by Michelle Obama when she announced “Argo” as the winner. The new images show a smiling Michelle Obama with silvery, modestly covered shoulders, and it’s almost like the hostages never got away.
