Michelle Obama & Ann Romney Both Wore Hot Pink To Last Night’s Debate

Well this must have been awkward: First Lady Michelle Obama and First Lady hopeful Ann Romney wore similar shades of hot pink at last night’s debate (for their respective husbands, it was opposite day: Barack Obama wore a red tie, Mitt Romney opted for blue).

Michelle wore a sleek dress suit and pearls–although we’re not crazy about the color, we think she looked pretty great. After all, if you’re going to wear a screaming shade of hot pink, you might want to keep everything else very simple and clean. And she did!

Ann Romney was a completely different story. She paired her pink boucle (maybe?) shift dress with a pile of clear blue gems. We imagine she was going for something akin to Cameron Diaz‘s memorable Met Gala look (the fuscia dress and turqouise jewels) but it all looked very Chico’s. Then again, maybe it’s a nod to the working man?

Oh, she also topped it off with a truly dreadful rug thing:

But, as much as we’d like to think that Michelle is wearing hot pink much better (objectively better, even) we still like ourselves a poll here at TheGloss, so please let us know:

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

    The shade of pink with Ann’s skin tone just did not work. She looks washed out, while Michelle looks born to wear hot pink. BTW, is this a nod to breast cancer awareness, or what?

    I think they both looked like colorful accessories to their husbands’ serious business suits. Which the serious business suits are as much to blame for as all that hot pink.

    Ann’s jacket is just ugly, and the colour just doesn’t suit her skin tone at all. Michelle is perfect in bright colours.
