President Barack Obama has been re-elected for a second term!
For the momentous occasion, First Lady Michelle Obama actually recycled a garment, wearing the same Michael Kors magenta silk chine pintucked dress she first wore two years ago:
She styled it almost identically both times, slipping on a black cardigan and kitten heels.
It seems the First Lady is sending a message about frugality and economic responsibility–hey, it really is ok to be photographed wearing a dress more than once.
She looks gorgeous and resplendent. I love it! What a strong message to send. She repeats outfits–she’s just like us! Sidenote: Who could ask for a more gorgeous First Family?!?
What do you think about Michelle’s dress and her stylish recycling?
Update: According to a spokesperson at Michael Kors, this is actually the third time the First Lady has worn the dress. Way to get your money’s worth, Michelle!

Yep! Jill Biden took the stage in a Susana Monaco dress (styled with a wide leather belt); Malia Obama in a J.Crew silk organza skirt.
