It’s prom season, and whether you are going to your prom this year or you went 10 years ago, it’s a time in your life that’s usually associated with fond memories and, often, really bad fashion. Michelle Obama appeared in a segment on Ellen today in which Ellen DeGeneres and the FLOTUS compare their ’70s/early ’80s prom style. And as should be expected, their styles were very different. As should also be expected, Mrs. O was totally hot. You can watch the cute reveal video above, or click through for a shot of the dresses side by side.
So let’s discuss. Obviously Ellen had a more boho ’70s look while Michelle was sleek and could probably have been right at home at Studio 54. (And how old is her date? Mustaches can be very aging.) Anyway, please note the slit up to THERE on the FLOTUS’ dress, proving that her left leg could totally give Angie’s right leg a run for its money. Also adorably, Mrs. O seemed rather chagringed at the slit, telling Ellen, “I don’t know if I’d let my kids out with a split that high. Let’s not show that to Malia and Sasha.”
