Considering they’re both known for their stellar sense of style, it’s no surprise they both opted for the fall 2010 tweed dress — but who do you think wore it better? Former pop princess Posh or the fashionable First Lady?

While you may prefer to fly in leggings or sweats, Victoria Beckham likes to travel in style! She was the first to wear this tweed Marc Jacobs dress last year while leaving LAX airport. The superstar chose to accessorize with her signature look, over-sized sunglasses and an over-sized bag and a clutch, both from her collection. She paired it with nude Brian Atwood pumps, bringing together the grey and taupe shades.

Michelle Obama opted for a different look when wearing the Marc Jacobs dress in Washington, D.C. at the Wal-Mart announcement of a comprehensive effort to provide healthier and more affordable food choices to their customers on Jan. 20.  The First Lady wore brown over-the-knee boots and little jewelry. Although the dress looks great, in my opinion Michelle threw off the balance when she wore the wrong shoes.

But don’t let me be the judge — who do you think wore it better?
