This past Tuesday was Election Day and while the focus was on our newly re-elected President Barack Obama, those of us in the fashion world of course paid attention to the clothing of the first lady, Michelle Obama. At the headquarters on Tuesday night Mrs. Obama opted for a dress that we have seen her in before, a magenta silk chine pintucked dress by Michael Kors. This of course shows that Mrs. Obama is always reusing pieces in her closet.
She is also seen wearing her signature black cardigan. Many have commented why she decided to wear something that the public has already seen her in in the past. Some perceived that she wanted the focus to be on her husband that night and not her fashion choice. It was well received by some saying that it was a good choice to display a designer who is American and whose clothing appeals to many different markets.
This Michael Kors dress was not the first worn by the First Lady, over the past few years she has been seen in many of the designers clothing. Here are a few examples.
