Over the weekend, our president and his missus traveled to the Vatican in continuation of the BarackStar’s World Tour 2009.

It should serve some good, since the Catholic Church has routinely been the most vociferous about Obama’s administration. They hated he was at Notre Dame giving a keynote address, and now, he is nuzzling up to Pope B16 for the first time.

No, not the fetching veil (or mantilla, as it’s known in more ecumenical circles). Believe it or not, that part customary for women.

This article from the Boston Globe brilliantly depicts life in pictures at the Vatican for women.

That said, I get the veil. I understand the tradition. But, um, what up with that bow, sister?!

Yeah, he’s rotund and that red scape shows a striking similarity, but he is not Santa Claus.

And, oh by the way, he is not dead… no matter how old the guy looks.

What’s with the monochromatic mourning look?

I think there is a sign above the Vatican entry that reads something like, “Unless you see black smoke, we are still in business. Willkommen.” (German, get it?)

According to HuffPo, the FLOTUS is a sucker for outfits that has already gotten rave reviews, so the blackout get-up is a recycled number she dawned in Prague meeting with the first Czech couple.

Memo to FLOTUS: Mix in a trip to Macy’s for the next pilgrimage to the Holy See.

Oh, and for the more fashionable sitting on the Wall, Missus O is wearing Moschino.
