First Lady Michelle Obama has served up a dazzling range of looks at the State of the Union addresses through her husband's administration: a "Good Wife" style suit, a burst of sapphire blue, her go-to designer Jason Wu. And at Tuesday night's final address, Mrs. Obama didn't disappoint. She donned a fall 2015 Narciso Rodriguez sleeveless wool crepe midi dress in a vibrant marigold hue — a flattering yellow tone that recently popped up on the likes of Jennifer Lopez and America Ferrera at the Golden Globes. As an added bonus, it's a current-season frock that's on sale for an accessible $628 at Neiman Marcus. (Update: It's already sold out. Sorry guys!) This is a full-circle moment in a way: Obama wore a red and black dress from Rodriguez's spring 2009 collection on election night back in 2008, as well as a sleeveless eggplant dress by the designer for the President's first congressional address in 2009. No, it really doesn't feel that long ago.

We still have a year left to admire FLOTUS's fashion, in addition to her passionate advocacy for girls' education, veterans' rights, nutrition and many more important causes. But Tuesday's final address marked the beginning of the Obama administration's last year in office, and no matter how you feel about the President's own legacy, I think we all will miss Michelle's warm yet sharp spirit — both in personhood and style.
