Sartorial comments on photoshopping in Iran

Reader comment on item: Islamist Media Digitally Cover Up Prominent Western Women

From a fashion perspective, Ms. Ashton's look is improved with a higher neckline. Most middle aged women(of which I am one) don't fare well in necklines more than a few inches lower than the neck, there's too much empty space between the jowls and shirt (sorry, such is life). The eye is drawn to contrasts, and here the eye is drawn to her mid-chest area instead of to her face. For Giselle and Mariah, one look is hardly less sexy than the other! For Mrs. Obama, while the bare arms is appropriate for the event (the Oscars), she routinely exposes (overexposes?) her arms at formal state affairs. She is almost always the only woman with bare shoulders and arms. I know they're buff but I'm kind of sick of seeing them. Would it kill her to wear sleeves like everyone else? At formal events where she is representing our country, I'd appreciate it if she would dress in a more modest and dignified way.
