Michelle Obama Steals the Show in Stunning Marigold Dress at Her Final State of the Union Address
By Zach Seemayer
It's the end of a (fashion) era!
President Barack Obama's final State of the Union address on Tuesday was a historic night for the Commander-in-Chief, but it also served as the last opportunity for Michelle Obama to show off her flawless first lady style -- and she pulled if off in a big way!
Michelle, who has managed to cultivate her own unique brand of modern-yet-timeless elegance during her years as the first lady, shined bright like a ray of sunlight in a sleek, form-fitting, gown that showed off her iconic arms and accentuated her beaming smile.
Michelle, 51, looked marvelous in the marigold sleeveless banded-bodice midi dress by Narciso Rodriguez, and the gleaming gown was the perfect way to celebrate her illustrious time in the White House.
As New York Times fashion critic Vanessa Friedman pointed out on Twitter, Michelle also rocked a striking Narciso Rodriguez gown in 2008, for her husband's historic election night victory, so there's a nice "symmetry" to her final State of the Union fashion choice.
Michelle Obama's sun-shiney #SOTU dress is by Narciso Rodriguez -- who made her 2008 election night dress. Oh, the symmetry.
At the address, Michelle sat next to an empty seat, which was left unoccupied as a tribute to "the victims of gun violence who no longer have a voice," according to a statement released by the White House on Sunday.
