Michelle Obama Shows Us the Polite Way to Wear Cutouts to an Interview
When Michelle and Barack Obama sat down with People for a final interview before leaving the White House, they were perfectly coordinated. Their outfits, muted in shade but nonetheless eye-catching, spoke to the tone of the photo shoot: Michelle and Barack are going out with a bang. They've been publicly united for eight years when it comes to political issues, and their deep-navy looks — Barack's finished with a royal-blue tie and Michelle's featuring eye-catching details — reflected that sentiment.
We couldn't have picked better ensembles for them to wear for the occasion, but then again, Michelle has always been one to blow us away with her fashion choices. Here, she wore a Derek Lam number with shoulder cutouts and contrast velvet pleating, speaking to the season's trends but also the conundrum every power woman faces: how can you steal the spotlight while keeping sophistication in mind? It starts with a piece like the FLOTUS's. Luckily, you can shop her dress, along with similar options, when you scroll.
