The moment Michelle Obama steps off a plane, whether or not she's got Barack by her side, there's only one thing we care about — what she's wearing. OK, we also care about listening to her inspiring words of wisdom. But it's pretty clear that the FLOTUS isn't only charming us by way of her huge smile and optimistic voice. She's also got a killer wardrobe chock-full of our favorite designers and a style sensibility that everyone admires. Her looks are not only perfectly catered to the events she attends or hosts, but they also scream personality.
That's why we were thrilled to see Michelle sport two Mary Katrantzou dresses in so many months. The print-loving designer's known for her fun, vibrant dresses that are perfect for women who carry themselves with confidence. And, translating your bold character through your clothing is the first step in power dressing. Michelle, here's to Mary Katrantzou, Jason Wu, Tanya Taylor, and many, many more of the designers who lend you the sartorial kick we love so much.
