Political Parties aside, our First Lady is one of the classiest broads out there. Finding the perfect combination of sophistication and femininity is not easy for someone of her status. I know we don't all have designers chomping at the bit to design for us, but you can't deny that she has style. I mean, other first ladies had similar offers and I can't remember a thing Laura B. or Hilary C. donned that was in the least bit memorable (in the good way, that is).
Thank you, Michelle, for showing women that being a political figure does not mean you need to look doubty or wear pantsuits. It also doesn't mean that you should avoid taking risks. I know this is old news, and she's been getting praise like for her style since pre-2008, but I like to give props where they're due. And this lady rarely misses a beat.
I want to be like Michelle O. when I grow up.....

|Now on to the party dress.
She pulled off a less-than-traditional neckline, draping, bare arms, vibrant RED and, let's not forget: fairly new bangs. All of these could have been disasters. Nope. Not for Mrs. O.
I also love the simple jewelry and focusing just on some nice bangles.

That's all for today, my broads. I think it's time for a few more bicep curls....
