Our first lady isn't just a supercool mom and inspiring role model — she's a style maven, too. Michelle Obama is able to jump-start new health- and dance-related initiatives, attend summits and galas around the world with her husband, take her kids to school, and look amazing as she juggles it all.
Her latest lust-worthy look — which she wore to the Kennedy Center Honors Award Ceremony — involves a hand-draped Marchesa gown whose shade of emerald is not only seasonal but also the Pantone color of 2013. She complemented the soft folds of the dress with a delicate necklace and a sparkling box clutch.
With a new batch of fashionable looks supplying our latest round of classic styling inspiration, we're taking a closer look at her best outfits yet.
