Michelle Obama became known for many things throughout her tenure as First Lady, from her push for healthier food options in the school cafeteria to her support of the arts. But there's one part of her legacy that we are especially inclined to comment upon here: her style. Always striking the right balance of classic and interesting, Obama mixed established houses like Versace with young designers like Jason Wu and won a host of fans amongst the fashion press as a result.

This week, in her first public interview since leaving the White House (sob) last year, Obama's outfit demonstrated that, at least with regard to her wardrobe, not much has changed. Obama appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" alongside Jennifer Aniston wearing a white Tom Ford top, high-waisted black pants, pointy-toed heels and white earrings. While the skin-covering nature of the outfit felt as White House-appropriate as ever, the just-barely-off-the-shoulder asymmetry of the top, which showed a hint of clavicle, kept things unstuffy. Welcome back, Michelle. We've missed you.
