Last night President Obama was reelected as the President of the United States. Almost as important as watching the election results was speculating on who the First Lady Michelle Obama was wearing. Details after the jump.
Fireworks were heard in Chicago late last night as President Barack Obama was reelected as President of the United States. The first family graced the stage of McCormick Place with President Obama to reclaim his presidency after he had won enough electoral college votes.
The First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters joined the newly reelected President on the stage in get-ups that were equally fashionable as they were memorable. Although last night Michelle did not decide to buy a new frock. On the evening of Obama’s first election night, she graced the stage in an iconic red and black Narcisco Rodriguez sheath, but his year Michelle wore a Michael Kors dress that she has worn not once, but twice before.
With four more years of Michelle’s sartorial choices, the fashion industry is celebrating with their favorite political public figure. Who knows how fashion could change by 2016, but it goes to show that the best is definitely yet to come.
Take a journey thorough fashionable first ladies of the past. From Jackie Kennedy to Nancy Reagan politics has been an unexpected venue for fashion, but over the years these first ladies have each reflected the fashion sense of the American spirit.
