In my lifetime, North American political dressing has never inspired me—Jackie Kennedy was lovely, but I was too young at the time; Laura Bush dresses herself like a lady, but she's not a style leader; Margaret Trudeau was too hippie; Mila Mulroney too-too.
But last night I couldn’t take my eyes from the stunning turquoise dress that Michelle Obama wore to give her speech at the Democratic National Convention.
The double v-neck, the bracelet sleeves, the fitted shape, the sunburst pin, and, especially, the color, were just stunning.
Chicago native Maria Pinto is the designer, and her clothes can be found at Barneys, Saks, and Takashimaya.
I’d wear this dress in a heartbeat.
