Mrs. O on Larry King Live

Image by Lorenzo Bevilaqua/CNN

The first lady appeared on Larry King Live Tuesday evening, answering a series of questions on her new initiative to combat childhood obesity, health care reform and Sarah Palin.

Mrs. O wore a black cap sleeve dress with pink inset detail at the collar by Narciso Rodriguez. This is the same frock that the first lady wore for her March 2009 interview and photoshoot for Vogue, seen below.

That's right! That's the dress she wore in her Annie Leibovitz photo shoot for Vogue. I knew I'd seen it somewhere before. I have that issue of vogue. Great photo spread. Michelle picked out all the pieces for that shoot herself. That photo is actually my favorite of the shoot because of the accentuation of the beautiful lines and curves of her body.

She was pitch perfect on Larry King last night. Best FLOTUS everrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, nice spot on the dress, that one went straight past me!!!

Wow, she looks SO much like her brother! I love this dress with it's shot of color. I do wish the FLOTUS would do something to make her brows darker and a little thicker. Either she's not using the right shade of pencil or she's had them lightened too much. It's been making her appear tired lately and we know she has astounding energy. I think she also uses a white pencil on her lower inner lid which some people do to make them appear more awake and refreshed. On the FLOTUS it doesn't work. She should try lining her inner lower lid with a great waterproof black pencil like Urban Decay's 24/7 "Zero" pencil. It's easy on the eyes and it does not budge all day long. I'm surprised that the makeup artist at Larry King didn't try to correct these two minor things for her.

I want this dress!

Dress is OK. Nothing special. Can't view the interview but I am sure she was great!

The first lady was intelligent, well-informed and classy--as always. ...As far as being mum on Palin is concerned, the less said the better. To comment on Palin's buffoonery and folksiness in the arena of important and substantive policy and ideas would be to elevate/validate her. (And she has the "Tee-Tee" Party for that.)

I'm 100% behind the first lady's childhood obesity initiative.

Brava, Mrs. Obama! What a fine interview you gave.

Mrs. O looks great in this interview and she has become so comfortable being interviewed. She seems to have a natural rappor with even the best journalists.

very classy comments on Larry King. She stays about the mud slinging. Her message is positive and she's all about doing. All the name calling, put downs, digs etc. of Ms. Palin is so incredibly childish and boorish and people are tired of that. Be a part of the solution, as Mrs. Obama clearly is. Bravo to her new program to get our kids' health back on track. And of course, she looks good doing it!

Great profile photo in the Vogue issue.

I enjoyed the interview with Larry King last night. Our Michelle looked lovely, I did not recognize this as the dress from Vogue. I surely appreciated her for staying above the fray in the midst of the political chaos. She stood her ground and did not budge. She's really doing a good job raising awareness on childhood obesity. Good to see her not only talking about it, but rolling up her sleeves (and encouraging us to do the same) and doing something to make an impact. Good for her.

She looks different in every picture.

Mrs Obama is a great role model as is her husband our President.

I love the simplicity of this dress. I do think that one of her beautiful brooches or a necklace would have given the outfit a more "finished" look.

Ms O looked great in her interview with Larry King. The pink against her face was a nice
spot of color. Since I find Sarah Palin irritating and a negative on the American scene, I was
especially interested to see how Michelle would answer Larry's query about Palin. I should
have known that Michelle would choose her words thoughtfully and stay postive and above
the fray. She reinforced me to choose my words carefully about Palin also. Thank you,
Michelle for taking the high road. You are an example to those who are open to your words.

That interview snippet was great. She is so smart and intelligent,heck she could run for President herself. I like the way she steered away from the mud slinging when Palin's name was brought into the fold. She handled that well. The Republicans are in bad shape if they are leaning on Sarah Palin as a spokeswoman for the party. She acts like a salty bitter petulant child who moans about nothing when they can't get their own way. She is a embarassment and I am suprised that no one has told her this.

As for Michelle's frock, I think it is cute and classy. Sheath dresses are made for her long lean frame.

I also bought this issue of Vogue. It takes pride of place on my coffee table next to my copy of Mrs O. I loved the article as it was done before they moved into the White House. It represented a new life for her family and it was a really exciting moment in history and I am glad to have been around to witness it.
