Wu for Two

For her appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Mrs. O reprised a Jason Wu custom silk faille cartridge pleated dress in teal, originally worn for the famed trip to London in 2009, here. Pointy toe black pumps and a layered necklace completed the look.

I truly cannot recall a First Lady like Michelle Obama....she is so natural, so down to earth, so fun....so one of us and yet so elegant and so, well, First Lady! She was so cute on the show....she and Jimmy have a great rapport. Love the look, love the hair. She's just the best.

Simple elegance. Natural beauty. Enough said.
P.S. If anyone knows if it's humanly possible to find the sweater (or a similar one) she wore with this dress to London in 2009, I'd be grateful for the information. I'd like to gift one to my sister, who would give a leg for one.

I appreciate the realness of our First Lady. The skit was just too precious--especially the "eat carrots" statement! Malia and Sasha are so very blessed. Loved this dress on her; thought it was just perfect for this venue with an audience in attendance. Necklace is to die for-smile!!

I like this much better without the sweater. And it's a great color for her!

Looks like a different dress - she has a way with making the same clothes look fresh!

@Marcus Perry, please check out ebay. They have tons on there, mostly by Tommy Hilfiger. I did not see any by Watanabe, but it's worth a look. I hope this helps.
As for our Michelle..........classic and classy!
