Royal Purple! Michelle Obama Meets Queen Elizabeth in Prince-Approved Color

Apr/22/2016 at 01:20 PM ET

As the Obamas’ term in the White House nears its end, we’re cherishing Michelle Obama’s dwindling style moments as First Lady. On Friday, she joined President Obama for a celebratory 90th birthday lunch for Queen Elizabeth held at Windsor Castle. FLOTUS selected a vibrant purple floral-embroidered Oscar de la Renta gown for the occasion, which seemed like a direct nod to late singer Prince, who passed away suddenly Thursday at the age of 57.

If there’s any woman who could rival Michelle Obama‘s status as America’s favorite political fashion plate (and First Lady), it’s surely another sartorially savvy “government official,” Kerry Washington’s character Olivia Pope on Scandal. So when Pope showed up on Thursday night’s episode wearing Michelle’s exact State of the Union dress, you best believe it was a Fashion Faceoff for the history books.

We are really going to miss Michelle Obama‘s elegant style when a new president takes office.

But in the meantime, lucky for us, FLOTUS is showing how it’s done (yet again) by looking stunning in a custom Jason Wu gown at the state dinner in honor of Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Obama’s strapless midnight blue floral jacquard gown with asymmetrical draping was specially made from the same print that was featured in the designer’s fall 2016 collection. And it’s her third major Jason Wu gown for a state event, the first two memorably being the gowns she wore to both Inaugural Balls.

President Obama and Trudeau matched in black bow ties while Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau donned a Lucian Matis dress.

Fox, Sandra Oh, Nancy Pelosi, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, Saturday Night Live‘s Lorne Michaels, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and Sara Bareilles, who performed after dinner.

Reynolds looked dashing in Burberry while Lively channeled Elizabeth Taylor in Ralph & Russo and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

Guests dined on Canadian delicacies such as poutine, Nanaimo bars and white chocolate snowballs and Alaskan halibut casserole all prepared by White House executive chef Cris Comerford. The main course featured tender lamb served with Yukon Gold potatoes and spring vegetables, drizzled with Yukon Jack Canadian whisky.

Michelle Obama's State of the Union Dresses - Which Was Your Favorite?

Jan/13/2016 at 01:26 PM ET

In eight years, Michelle Obama has certainly solidified her status as one of the most fashionable first ladies ever. She’s promoted up-and-coming designers from the start (she wore a relatively unknown-at-the-time Jason Wu dress to her first Inaugural Ball), she isn’t afraid to wear the most colorful, daring prints and don’t even get us started on her formal attire (here’s a highlight of just some of her glamorous moments).

Since her eighth and final State of the Union dress set Twitter on fire last night, we’re looking back to the beginning of her spotlight-stealing style.

Michelle Obama Steals the Spotlight in a Marigold Narciso Rodriguez Dress at State of the Union Address

Jan/12/2016 at 10:16 PM ET

Michelle Obama is going out with a bang for her final State of the Union appearance.

The First Lady stole the style spotlight in a yellow-orange wool crepe dress by Narciso Rodriguez at the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday.

All eyes were on Obama, 51, when she entered her box in the House of Representatives gallery, receiving a warm welcome from dignitaries and politicians.

And many fans online took to Twitter to applaud FLOTUS’ stunning orange ensemble. Comedian Charlamagne tha God tweeted with praise, “First Lady Michelle Obama out there looking like a delicious piece of Orange Starburst.”

While one follower wrote, “Has @MichelleObama ever looked more fierce than she does tonight?” We totally agree!

Fittingly, Narciso Rodriguez was also the designer behind her 2008 election night dress. Last year, Obama wore a grey Michael Kors suit channeling actress Julianna Marguiles  from The Good Wife.

And Obama’s bold SOTU dress was such a hit that it sold out instantly online!
