When it comes to fashion, Former First Lady Michelle Obama never disappoints. Whether she’s rocking something off the rack from J. Crew or designer duds from the latest Versace collection, she knows what looks best on her, and she’s not afraid to push the envelope.

For her stop in D.C., Mrs. Obama rocked a denim on denim look from the Ganni Resort 2023 collection that was casually chic. But when it comes to this look, it was the red patent boot for me.

The always fashion-forward former First Lady brought the heat when she sat down with Sara Jessica Parker at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, NY in 2019. The yellow Balenciaga gown was stunning, but the thigh-high gold Balenciaga boots stole the show.

If there’s one thing I can say about Michelle Obama, ya girl can rock a pantsuit. And the pink suit she wore at the SAP Center in San Jose, Calif gave me life.

You have to bring it when you sit down with Oprah Winfrey. And Mrs. Obama did just that in an all-white ensemble at a Chicago stop on her “Becoming” book tour. We love the subtly sexy touches, including the peek-a-boo shoulder and pop of color with her pink pumps.
