Being the first lady is by no means an easy job, but Michelle Obama always manageD to do it in style. Whether stepping out on the red carpet at a formal function or just heading out for a walk with Barack, we've come to love how she always managed to give an elegant look her own surprising spin.
With some heavy-hitting designers in her corner (hello, Jason Wu, Ralph Lauren, and Tom Ford!), we came to expect not just a great outfit but a bona fide style moment whenever she stepped out of the White House. And while we may not have the occasion (or income) to copy every one of her iconic looks, there is still plenty to learn from her flawless FLOTUS style.
