The end of the year offers the opportunity to look back at the First Lady's standout fashion moments from the twelve months prior. This year I've divided my top picks into two categories: gowns and everything else. (Let's be honest, there's nothing quite like a ball gown!) Below you'll find a short list of my picks for Mrs. O's best gowns from 2012, as well as a poll. Dress, suits and such follow in a post below. Collectively we can declare the best of the year. Polls will remain open for three days. Happy Voting!
