Before the president stepped up to the podium to deliver his very last State of the Union address, all eyes were on Michelle Obama — and, naturally, what she was wearing. "Wow," we thought, as we watched her with wide eyes. "She looks stunning in that orange dress."

But after logging on to Twitter, we noticed a bit of a debate going on. "I love Michelle's yellow dress!" one tweet read, while another compared the color to "sunshine." What? Yellow? Sunshine? What was going on here?!

On a second — and more thorough — inspection, we'd now describe the number as butternut squash, and the designer, Narciso Rodriguez, has dubbed it "marigold." But the Internet does not seem to agree. Read on to see some photos of FLOTUS's look, as well some opinions on the specific shade, and then tell us what you think in the poll.
