Tonight at the Democratic National Convention, First Lady Michelle Obama gave the night’s closing speech. She had a lot of the audience in tears and tomorrow journalists will be writing about how she’s the secret weapon of the Obama presidential campaign (How exactly is the First Lady secret? Nevermind!). But tonight, Twitter is buzzing about her outfit.
Which is basically as predicted. The biggest takeaway of Ann Romney’s speech at the Republican convention last week seemed to be that she chose a solid red Oscar De La Renta dress for her speech. Earlier today, Michelle told Inside Edition:
“People look for the message in everything I wear. So in the end I’m doing what women do. It’s like, how do I feel? What looks right? What kind of movement do I need? What’s practical when it comes right down to it?”
In the end, she chose a pink and silver patterned Tracy Reese dress with a full skirt and a silver dipped hem.
And in the meantime, let’s spend a moment figuring out what messages her dress sent to America today.
