Michelle Obama's Oscars dress (by Naeem Khan) wasn't particularly risque by U.S. standards ... but in Iran, well, that sort of thing is JUST NOT OKAY!

Fars News, a TV network in Iran, edited the First Lady's dress in a story about her Academy Awards appearance posted on their website (see below).

Note the digitally added sleeves and neckline. Oh, you clever Tehran TV editors. Good job shielding Iranian viewers from Michelle's provocative outfit.

Fars News states that Obama, who handed out the Best Picture award, was used as a prop simply because the winner was “the anti-Iranian film Argo.”

Even the POTUS has to pose for awkward family photos.

This image from the Commander-in-Chief's second inauguration shows what a diverse and wonderful one he has, even if family pics are always a tad uncomfortable.

President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, and daughters Sasha and Malia joined his extended family for a group photo in the White House Blue Room.

The cause of the Michelle Obama eye roll may forever be a mystery.

House Speaker John Boehner says he has no idea why the First Lady looked visibly annoyed and rolled her eyes at him during an inaugural lunch Monday.

During a meeting of House Republicans on Capitol Hill Tuesday, Boehner addressed the caught-on-tape interaction, saying he has "no clue" what he said.

"He said, 'I have no clue what that was about," Louisiana Republican Rep. John Fleming told reporters. "He said they were just having a casual conversation."

"He said he doesn't know why she rolled her eyes."

President Barack Obama's Inauguration featured classic photo bombs, Beyonce lip-syncing, a big Sasha Obama yawn and an epic eye roll from Michelle Obama.

Michelle's rolling of eyes was directed at Speaker of the House John Boehner, who tapped her on the back during lunch. Umm, dude, I'm trying to eat here!

At the inaugural luncheon, Barack Obama seems like he was being cordial toward Boehner, though Michelle looked less than thrilled - at least in this viral clip.

It's one thing to block her man's agenda in Congress and battle over the debt ceiling like a boss. Another to interrupt FLOTUS in the middle of lunch.

Tell us: Was Michelle Obama's eye roll rude?

UPDATE: Boehner was reportedly clueless after the fact, telling Republican House members the next day that they casually conversed and that was it.

Expert lip reader Larry Wenig tells Inside Edition that - he believes - Boehner was asking President Obama if he wanted to join him for a cigarette before lunch.

Wenig believes Boehner - a known smoker - then tapped the FLOTUS on the arm before joking to the president that “somebody won’t let you do it,” referring to Michelle Obama.

Yesterday was a big one for United States President Barack Obama.

After being sworn in, the 44th Commander-in-Chief delivered a moving inaugural address and enjoyed a day of pomp, circumstance and celebration.

The burning question: Was there an inaugural undress after the ball?

Barack and Michelle Kissing

With the FLOTUS looking radiant (Michelle Obama's Jason Wu dress had everybody buzzing) on the dance floor, you have to wonder if they ... you know.

Attractive couple dressed to the nines. Historic moment. That look in their eyes. One thing must have led to another back at the WH ... right?! You tell us.

Did Barack and Michelle consummate the Presidency last night?

January's not even over yet, but it looks like First Daughter Malia Obama has already won Photo Bomb of the Year 2013 after this awesome effort Monday.

As sister Sasha Obama attempted to take an iPhone photo of her parents smooching on Inauguration Day, Malia impishly inserted herself into the shot.

The slightly curious / mildly irritated look from President Barack Obama - who appears to be holding an iPhone himself - is pretty priceless at the end.

All in all, a good day for the First Family. The antics of Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11, were viral sensations, while Barack was sworn in for another four years.

Honorable mention: This Bill Clinton photo bomb of Kelly Clarkson.

First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama wore a gorgeous gown to the Inaugural Ball on Monday night, one designed by none other than Jason Wu.

Wu also dressed Michelle for her first Inaugural Ball four years ago!

Jason Wu Dress (Michelle Obama Inaugural Ball 2013)

A far cry from the one-shouldered white gown Michelle wore in 2009, the high halter neck and the rich red color really helped this one stand out.

The high-waisted belt is also one of the FLOTUS' trademark looks.

Her new bangs, Jimmy Choo shoes and a Kimberly McDonald ring made her a vision on the evening of President Barack Obama's inauguration.

What do you think of Michelle Obama's Jason Wu dress?
