The first lady is in the audience for the final night of the Democratic National Convention, with the president due to speak later this evening. For the occasion, Mrs. O is wearing a full-skirt, bateau neckline dress in a perfect-for-fall eggplant hue print. An Alexis Bittar lucite dogwood pin at the neckline completes the look.
Update: Mrs. O wears a dress by designer Laura Smalls. The first lady wore a dress by Smalls earlier in the week, seen here. What a wonderful moment for the rising designer! Smalls says, "I could not believe my eyes that Michelle Obama wore our dress to this historic event. Words cannot describe how my team and I feel."
