First Lady of Fashion: Style Victory for Michelle Obama and Girls
Fashion plate Michelle Obama proved that when you find a great dress you don't let it go. The First Lady celebrated President Barack Obama's re-election victory in a Michael Kors dress she has worn twice before!
She previously wore the gown, described by Kors as a “magenta silk chine pintucked dress,” to a Medal of Honor ceremony in Washington on Nov. 16, 2010 and a White House holiday party in 2009.
Mrs. Obama has changed the look slightly each time with different accessories; Tuesday night she chose a black cardigan and House of Lavande vintage brooch.
A source told People that she chose the dress because “she was so busy with the campaign and their kids that she had no time to think about an outfit and decided at the last minute.”
The New York Times' Cathy Horyn called Michelle's choice more “subdued” compared to the black and red Narciso Rodriguez sheath she wore in 2008. Horn added, “but the cardie continues!”
Horyn took note of Sasha and Malia's election night style too, tweeting, “The Obama girls might be the fashion news tonight -- full skirts, bright color, cute.”
Sasha chose a Chris Benz green A-line skirt and black blouse accessorized by colorful necklaces and black flats, while Malia wore a royal blue skirt and black long-sleeved top paired with a red belt and dark green flats.
