Taking a moment to reflect on the fact that we live in an era where one of our most admired style icons is our black First Lady never really gets old.

The White House hosted a state dinner honoring British Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife Samantha and Michelle Obama rocked an off-the-shoulder Marchesa gown in a shade of blue that will likely become an even bigger part of the upcoming season’s trends. She paired the dress, which has an estimated retail price of $6,000, with a chunky statement necklace, basic black heels, and a hint of blue eyeshadow. The front of the dress may be a little bit busy and aged for the First Lady’s figure, but she is definitely making great use of her toned shoulders and arms with that neckline!

What do you think of Michelle Obama’s look?

    The color is beautiful. I love it. I am supposed to be on an everything no-buy this year, but I will definitely buy a couple of things in that color if I see any.

    I don’t think the front is too buy. It is a great and flattering dress.

    I think… I love her. No,no,no wait.. I do love her. The First Lady looks great. Oh yeah and so does The President. Respect.

    i actually don’t like the color teal in general. and i don’t care for it too much here.

    but i always love michelle o.

    She looks lovely as always. I heart her! I will say that I think (although she probably didn’t buy it) it is a bit risky in these pre-election times to wear something so expensive. It will be another reason to take a jab at the Obamas/Democrats.

    How lovely! The neckless is gorgeous! I love her sense of style, she’s such a lady.

  • Mimi

    Completely off topic, but I always love the way that Michelle and Barack look at each other. They actually look like they not only love each other, but they LIKE each other too.

    Not feeling the necklace, but I LOVE the dress and almost everything by Marchesa.

    She needs to straighten her posture. I don’t like the dress but LOVE the necklace.

  • Velma

    She always looks beautiful and I love it!

  • Monique

    I agree with edub she needs to stand up straight and hold her shoulders back but I love everything about this couple.

  • Greg

    Worst-looking member of the family and she brings down good clothing. She’s just unattractive. She’s in good company though. First ladies generally are.

    More than how Michelle Obama looks, I love the way her husband looks at her no matter what she’s wearing. The love and admiration of a good man is the best fashion accessory.
