President Obama and his wife Michelle hit the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC for the Let Freedom Ring Commemoration, with the First Lady wearing an elegant Tracy Reese frock.
The First Lady is pretty conscientious when it comes to selecting her outfits for public occasions; it’s fitting she chose to wear an African American designer to celebrate such a watershed moment in the Civil Rights movement.
The New York Times has declared dad jeans are IN. But are they really?
If the checkered ASOS dress NYC mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner’s wife Huma Abedin wore yesterday looks familiar to you, it’s probably because you shared a pic of it with all your Facebook friends way back in August. No, we aren’t suggesting you’ve time-traveled (though that would be like, so insanely awesome, right?!): First Lady Michelle Obama wore the very same number for a campaign event in Iowa with the President, then running for his second term in office–a photo of which went on to become the most viral image in history.

After making Wu the only designer she wears to inauguration ceremonies last month, she wore a black and shimmering oxblood sheath by the designer to last night’s State of the Union.
