Iran runs altered images of Michelle Obama gown

In this combination of photos made on Sunday, first lady Michelle Obama, appearing via video link, and actor Jack Nicholson present the award for best picture during the Oscars ceremony. As seen in the bottom photo, the first lady wore a sleeveless, scoop neck gown for the occasion. The photo on top is an altered version that Iran's semi-official Fars news agency ran on their website, with her shoulders and neckline covered with added material to make her gown look less revealing.
