The first lady put her most fashionable foot forward for the 50th anniversary celebration of Martin Luther King’s ‘March on Washington.’ Did you love her pretty, printed dress as much as we did?

Michelle Obama looked appropriate and chic, (per usual!), when she stepped out for the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s iconic I Have A Dream speech on Aug. 28. The first lady selected a signature style from African-American designer Tracy Reese‘s fall collection on this occasion — and she looked stunning! Not only did Michelle stun in the floral frock, but the designer was thrilled that the first lady selected her dress for such a momentous occasion.

Michelle Obama’s March On Washington Dress:

Tracy Reese was quoted saying, “We are honored that the First Lady would choose to wear one of our designs during the celebration of such a deeply significant historical moment. Mrs. Obama’s radiance make our dresses shine!” We couldn’t agree more!

Her embellished flared frock featured a waistband that accentuated her figure and gave way to a skirt that fanned out around her. The dress hit right at the knee and dips down in the back to a v, while the scarlet floral pattern was so chic — and the dress highlighted the first lady’s favorite asset, her arms! The embellishments in the center of each flower were my favorite part of the frock. Michelle styled the dress with a pair of black patent pumps and she wore her hair back. It comes as no surprise that Michelle opted for one of Tracy Reese’s dress on this occasion — after all, she’s a huge fan of the designer and has showed off a slew of her creations in the past!

The first lady joined her hubby, President Barack Obama, and former presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to commemorate the momentous day.

If you can’t get enough of Michelle’s look, you can SHOP for it right here for $465. Did you like Michelle’s dress as much as we did?

Pretty dress, but as usual Mrs. Obama ruins it with yet another unnecessary belt. Her stylist should go into her wardrobe and throw out every single belt as they do not look good on her short-waisted figure.

I loved the dress and thought she loved FABULOUS in it. I thought it was very appropriate for this outdoor, daytime event.

More of a cocktail dress, not suitable for daytime. Love Michelle, but this one didn’t work for me.

Hate the dress. Ordinary at best and definitely not presidential looking. she should look back to Nancy Reagan and Betty Ford for inspiration. Now, they were the epitome of what a first lady should be dressed like

Ford and Reagan were much older than M. Obama when they were First Ladies. Their clothes tended to be quite safe and conservative. I much prefer Obama’s fresh, iconic choices. She does not need to emulate Reagan or Ford.

Still too much gaudy embellishment and large pattern for a first lady’s appearance. Better to have a solid color. Also as in comment below, I never really think she looks “stunning.”

The dress is Ok, but she always looks pissed off, not stunning.
