Shelley got it right for TV.


First Lady Michelle Obama makes an appearance on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ in a Bibhu Mohapatra dress from his resort collection.

What a great dress for her. What a perfect dress for a sit-down interview. The layered hem looks great when she crosses her legs. We don’t think this dress needed a belt, but she may have thought she needed one since she’d be seated. Fine, but that’s not the belt we would have recommended. Thinner, and black patent leather, we’re thinking.

There’s those shoes again. She’s gotten a LOT of mileage out of that simple pair. Good for her. She doesn’t always pair them well, but they go perfectly with the dress. Yes, they’re matchy, but the dress has at least 4 colors in it and her shoes are pulling out the least dominant one. That’s exactly the way we think it should be done.

Attagirl, FLO.
