Michelle Obama and Julianne Moore Wear the Same Thakoon Dress

Who Wore It Better? Thakoon Red and Purple Print Dress

I wonder if Julianne saw Michelle Obama in her Thakoon red and purple print dress when she wore it at the Democratic National Convention. Needless to say, it's a cute little shift — from Thakoon's '09 Resort collection — appropriate for both political functions and film festivals, where Julianne wore a shorter hem version. Michelle adorned her neckline and was comfy in black flats, while Julianne opted for chunky nude platforms. It is a surprisingly versatile dress, but who rocked it?

I think it looks better on Julianne, but I hate her shoes (what are those, wooden clogs?!) It looks great with her beautiful red hair though...

I think its great that Michelle isn't afraid to wear dresses. Wonder what surprises we'll see once she is (hopefully) first lady.

That (kinda ugly) dress begs for heels. Julianne all the way.

Julianne wore it better, but I voted for Michelle because of the context she wore it in.

I really just don't like the dress. It's sort of sack-like. But I do love Julianne's shoes!
