First Lady Michelle Obama Repeats Michael Kors Raspberry Magenta Silk Chine Brocade Dress for President Barack Obama Victory Speech

Celebrity Style / Obama Family / November 7, 2012

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!
*See President Barack Obama’s victory speech here:

The Best is Yet to Come!
*Reader KBS wrote, “Can I get some deets on Malia’s skirt and Jill’s dress btw?”

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.
