The First Lady showed off so many incredible ensembles over the past couple of days. However, her styles didn’t just consist of elegant gowns and modern looks. She shockingly brought two styles back — and she really pulled off the retro vibe! Did you like her different look? VOTE!

On Jan. 22 at the Washington Convention Center for a private party for thousands of Obama’s staffers, 49-year-old Michelle Obama came on the stage wearing something out of the ordinary. The sequin style is so in right now, but not quite in the way that Michelle sported the trend. Don’t get me wrong, she still looked stunning, but it was an interesting choice!

For this retro ensemble, she donned a gold sequin tunic over a pair of black flared pants. Unlike her flowing gowns, these looks were very old-fashioned. The tunic that she wore looks like it was swooped right out of a retro look book (or the depths of her closet)! Her black slacks were popular back in the seventies, and not many people dare to wear the flared look anymore. While we’ve seen the style make a slight comeback, we’re sure many women will be enthusiastic to try it now that Michelle showed it off!

It’s crazy that Michelle went from wearing the young and hip designer, Jason Wu, just the night before to wearing this retro ensemble! Hey, she could bring this style back — you never know, but it sure was a bold move by this First Lady.

However, no matter how bold Michelle dresses, there is always someone else who can go out on a limb and take a much bolder risk, and her name is Lady Gaga. Michelle and President Barack Obama introduced this special guest of the night in front of more than 10,000 guests of theirs– everyone from the campaign employees to the White House officials! Oh, what a night! Lady Gaga sported a crazy Versace dress and did a great performance!
