You Don't Have to Stare Long at Michelle Obama's Dress to Know It Has a Special Meaning
Eight years ago, Michelle Obama wore a one-shoulder Jason Wu gown to President Barack Obama's inauguration. For her husband's farewell address, Michelle again turned to the designer one final time. She chose a navy lace dress that hugged her silhouette and modestly covered her arms. The gown was a fitting choice for an emotional night as Michelle subtly paid tribute to not only her husband, but her own fashion legacy. She's known for wearing a range of designers from Prabal Gurung to Tom Ford, after all, and has supported emerging artists since her husband first took office.
Although all eyes were on President Obama as he gave his farewell speech, our attention definitely lingered on Michelle, especially when President Obama praised her for being the best mother, wife, and role model to America. Not only did that moment bring tears to our eyes, but the fact that Michelle wore Jason Wu again is enough to really, truly break our hearts.
