Everyone is already aware that Michelle Obama is a style powerhouse. Her credits include Jason Wu, Thakoon and Thom Browne on the regular. She is the first first lady since Jackie O to really have a handle on her fashion situation. That means, no oversize sweater suits from St. John for her. Not that we’re hating on any former first ladies. We’re just saying that in the sartorial arena, they are simply no match for Michelle.
She usually reps hard for American born designers, but last night she decided to hit us with an Italian — THE Italian actually. Versace. It was a bold choice for sure but when Michelle Obama walked out of those double doors with her causal escort, the POTUS, jaws dropped around the world. The positive response on social media was fast and furious and we're sure you’ve already seen this dress a million times but let’s take a closer look, shall we? We think it deserves to be seen from every. single. angle.
Here she is from the front. One shouldered perfection. This is the shot that definitely set the world ablaze. It’s what Alicia Keys was singing about when she sang, “This girl is on fire.”
Relatedly, we think it’s why Migos wrote their classic hit, “Versace.”
OK, one more from the front. Damn, she makes him look good. It's not really easy to outshine the president, but for Michelle anything is possible.
They're both pleased knowing that they just shut down the whole world, like, "LOL world domination is real. We know because we are doing it."
Let's get a closer look at these million dollar smiles. Meanwhile, Melania Trump better never even look in a Versace store again.
And here we are in motion. She's literally floating. A floating bronze statue — and that's impossible when you think about it!
Let's review the side view. Yup, still flawless.
The approval ratings for this gown are through the roof. Look at the prez having to toast this iconic moment in American history. Thank you, Michelle. *Clink*
Hate to see you go, but love to watch you leave FLOTUS!!!! Seriously, only 100 more days of this unconscionable glamour.
