Michelle Obama In Tracy Reese – ‘Let Freedom Ring’ Ceremony

Michelle Obama In Tracy Reese - 'Let Freedom Ring' Ceremony

Michelle Obama put her fashionable foot forward while attending the ‘Let Freedom Ring’ ceremony for the 50th anniversary celebration of Martin Luther King’s ‘March on Washington’ earlier today in Washington D.C.

As always, she lifted my heart and sent me to fashion heaven, wearing a Tracy Reese Fall 2013 dress.

I love that not only did she make a stylish style statement wearing a black-and-red floral-motif frock with a figure-flattering fit-and-flare silhouette, but also that she wore an African-American designer to commemorate this momentous occasion.

Obsessed with this look. Needless to say.

    I really love the dress and she wears it flawlessly. On first glance i thought it a tad too evening for the occassion but then I wondered if she wore the poppies as a symbol of rememberance which if she did was a woonderful gesture

    Gorgeous and appropriate. I wonder if she meant the poppies to be significant, as well?

    Goosebumps–both from the dress and from your comments, Catherine.

    She’s so lovely and awesomely thoughtful as usual! She is indeed the 21st century First Lady. A smart, strong, wise, proud, confident yet down to earth woman who never forgets what’s important.

    I like that she embraces fashion but does so thoughtfully and not in a flimsy or superficial way. She could have the services of all the great fashion houses, wear only haute couture and show up at these events in bespoke Chanel or any number of exclusive designers –

    Yet she eschews it all and continues to enthusiastically support as many new, up and coming designers and affordable retail brands. And she wears them all so beautifully and to great effect, helping make many household names and increasing sales in the process.

    Gorgeous look. The dress looks much better on her than on the model.

      ITA. Mo looks great-way better than the model, and that’s quite a compliment.
