So naturally, she went for an artistic vibe while attending the ribbon cutting ceremony of the Whitney Museum's new location in New York City on Thursday. FLOTUS chose a brightly printed dress from Thakoon's resort collection, wisely keeping the rest of the look simple with black pumps and minimal jewelry.

And yet: Is that some metallic nail polish we see? Well played, Ms. Obama.
