Fashion Illustration

Today's Style and Arts section of the Washington Post has sketches of ballgowns designed for Michelle Obama. These are amateur drawings and I have no reason to believe that they will have any influence on what she will actually wear at any inaugural ball. Which is a good thing because the winning illustration has particularly peculiar proportions, even by the distorted standards of fashion illustration. I did the numbers in centimeters because it was easier to measure it that way.

Her head is about 1 cm. long in the picture. The area from her neck to her waist is about 1.2 cm. The waist is 0.5 cm wide. And the length from the waist to the bottom of the gown is 12 cm.

I must have forgotten the part of the inauguration traditions in which the first lady enters on stilts.
