Iranian news agency digitally alters Michelle Obama’s Oscars gown to make it look more modest

An Iranian news agency has digitally altered an image of Michelle Obama announcing the Oscar for Best Picture last night, in order to make her dress appear more modest. The State-controlled Fars News Agency added a high neckline and cap sleeves to the silver Naeem Khan gown worn by the U.S. First Lady, who from the Diplomatic Room of the White House, remotely presented the award to Ben Affleck for his film Argo. It was photoshopped in order that the garment would be in keeping with the country’s Islamic dress codes that require women not to expose too much skin.

Pre-Photoshop, Mrs O’s dress actually has a low neckline that stops short of exposing any cleavage
Instead of sleeves are inch-thick straps, exposing those toned shoulders and arms for which Mrs Obama, 49, is so well-known.
