Michelle Obama in Tracy Reese

Posted on September 05, 2012

Okay, okay! We heard you, twitter-peeps! So many of you came flying at us at once with your twitter-twats demanding to know everything there is to know about everything appearing on FLO’s body (right down to requests to identify her nail polish, to which we have to respond “Really?”) that we think you might have caused a twitter-twat-breakdown last night.

First lady Michelle Obama at the Democratic National Convention at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, North Carolina. Michelle Obama wore a custom Tracy Reese dress paired with J. Crew suede pumps.

Objective: all eyes on me while I project an image of competence and femininity; new school female warrior meets old school wife and mother.

Mission accomplished.

It’s eye-catching as hell, isn’t it? Probably one of the more eye-catching outfits she’s ever worn – and that’s REALLY saying something. A wonderful break from the binary red/blue color scheme. Sure, it’s pink and pale blue, which means it’s not that much of a break, but we’ll take it.

Now you know we’re gonna bitch about those shoes. They’re fabulous shoes, but Shelley does love her Barbie-style matching. Still, she looks sharp, pretty, and most importantly, modern.
