Michelle Obama Fashion Flap, New Year's Fish Auction, High Surf

New this morning, the First Lady's fashions on her Hawaiian holiday are attracting the attention of the British press. Why is Michelle Obama's wardrobe being criticized? http://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/story/16410270/obamas-hawaiian-vacation-continues-to-stir-controversy

The President and First Lady returned to their favorite date night destination last night, Alan Wong's Restaurant. Our cameras were there, but it was mission impossible to get a clear look at the couple. See what was in the way on Sunrise.

The countdown to the New Year is making the United Fish Agency anxious. The catch hasn't been great for the past few days and without it, prices will shoot up for high quality sashimi. Ramsay Wharton will bring us live reports from the fish auction.

Weather Now: A big country swell will peak today, with another bump right behind it. There's a HIGH SURF ADVISORY for North & West shores Niihau/Kauai and North shores Oahu, Molokai and Maui.

The WIND ADVISORY continues for Haleakala and Big Island summits. Gusts could top 50 mph. Winds will start to back off tomorrow through the weekend.

A SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY posted for parts of Maui County and waters south of the Big Island.

We now know who started the Jon bon Jovi death hoax and why. That's part of "What's Trending" today. Hear what inspired one man to start the rumor this morning on Sunrise.

Also ahead, there's help if you want 2012 to be the year you quit smoking. Plus, Steve is back and the proud papa has new baby pictures of his son Jace.

Hope you can join us for Sunrise.
