The First Lady decided to make yet another fashion statement last Tuesday night when her husband, President Barack Obama, gave his acceptance speech after winning a second term in office. Instead of wearing a new frock, the First Lady opted for recession chic and wore a dress that she had already made two different outings in.
Gossip magazines hailed the choice with statements like US Weekly‘s, “It’s official: America has four more years … of Michelle Obama’s dazzling fashion choices.” And People Magazines glowing review, “The First Lady exercised her right to look stylish after the polls closed Tuesday night, wearing a pintucked magenta silk chine Michael Kors dress (she’s a fan of the designer), House of Lavande Vintage brooch and black shrug for her husband’s acceptance speech in Chicago. And in true Michelle fashion, she chose a dress she’d worn — twice — before.”
But the selection of the “thrice-worn-dress” has people outside the style sphere talking as well. Acording to USA Today, “An Obama source claimed that she chose the dress because, “she was so busy with the campaign and their kids that she had no time to think about an outfit and decided at the last minute.”
