With the recent historic reelection of President Barack Obama, it is only fitting that the fashionable First Lady Michelle Obama is our style crush for this week. The poised and classy Mrs. Obama has been dressing to the nines since she joined the campaign trail. She often flaunts bold, striking colors that are bound to get your attention, all while mixing both high-end and low-end pieces — from J. Crew to Jason Wu — into her repertoire.

Even more notably, on reelection night, Mrs. Obama made a statement by wearing a magenta silk chine pin-tucked dress by Michael Kors that she last wore here in 2010. This was the third time she wore this exact Michael Kors dress in public. She even prides herself on recycling her outfits — a trick she calls “shopping her closet.”
Wouldn’t we all love to shop in Michelle’s closet? We couldn’t have asked for a more fashion-forward first lady. Thanks, Barack!
