Iran news agency 'covers up' Michelle Obama

First Lady Michelle Obama's image at the Oscars has been digitally altered by an Iranian news agency in order to make her dress, designed by an Indian-American, appear more modest.

Michelle got the unexpected makeover from the Iranian Fars News Agency that added sleeves and a neck to her sleek metallic gown.

Obama made a surprise appearance at the Oscars to present the Academy award for best picture to Argo Sunday night via a live feed from the White House. The photo was apparently edited to better comply with the strict Islamic dress code for women.
