There was lots to discuss in Tuesday night’s State of the Union, but since this is a style site, we’re going to get straight to the the style high point. No, not all the red-and-blue bipartisan ties, though those were very nice too. We’re talking, of course, about Michelle Obama‘s forest green ensemble, designed by Azzedine Alaïa. The dress had a fitted bodice and full skirt, made from the designer’s signature textured material and with bands of a deeper green fabric encircling the skirt. Her jacket was made to match, and she added a wide leather belt to the outfit. Everything else — from her center-parted hair to her jewelry — was kept simple.

We asked @stylewatchmag followers on Twitter what they thought of her look, and the result was overwhelmingly positive. Check out a sample of the responses below, and tell us your thoughts in the comments!

Michelle Obama is having quite the week! First she debuted sassy new highlights at a film screening in Washington, D.C. yesterday, and today, she wowed in a beautiful flared floral frock from Tracy Reese’s fall collection at the 50th anniversary celebration of Martin Luther King Jr.’s March on Washington.

Re: the First Lady’s style choice, Reese said, “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 makes our dresses shine!”
