If you thought Michelle Obama's prime time for gorgeous outfits was exclusively when she was in the White House, you are in for a rude awakening. Since the end (and very much missed) presidential term of Barack Obama two years ago, the former First Lady has refused to keep her foot off our necks, and you know what? If it's a thigh-high, sparkly gold Balenciaga boot — which she oh-so-effortlessly wore during an appearance in Brooklyn in 2018 — that she wants to keep there, then that's all right with me.
Or perhaps it's a slingback Jimmy Choo heel, which Mrs. Obama recently wore for her ongoing, globetrotting "Becoming" book tour. The First Lady-turned-published author stopped in Stockholm on Wednesday, where she paired the crystal-covered shoes with a light green Acne Studios suit, adorned with a stunning embellished collar. It's another sartorial reminder that she remains humble but will check us when necessary, which is truly all I can ask.
Plus, it seems like sparkling suits are on her style radar at the moment. Just the day before, Obama graced us with yet another glittery moment in a custom-made Stine Goya dusty rose suit.
I rest my case.
