Michelle Obama in Chris Benz

Posted on July 12, 2012

FLO put on her campaigning dress and hit the trail.

 

First lady Michelle Obama speaks to supporters and volunteers at the Barbara Goleman High School in Miami Lakes, Florida in a Chris Benz dress.

We always associate green-and-blue combos with the late ’60s/early ’70s post-mod styles. It’s a combo that has only sporadically shown up on the runways since then because let’s face it, it’s a tough one to pull off. We think this dress looks fantastic on her, but we would be remiss if we didn’t mention the pleats at the waist and how much better this would look on her without them. For once, she chose a pretty perfect little belt to pair with this dress, but the shoes clash. This is one dress that pretty much required neutral-colored shoes. We would have been fine with a couple of silly putty pumps, even (although our suggestion would have been black).

Still, it’s colorful, stylish, and attention-getting, which is clearly what Shelley needed to be here.
