Michelle Obama might have made J.crew great again while she was in the White House, but her post-politics style has seemingly taken a significant turn away from the preppy brand’s signature cardigans and A-line dresses.
Appearing at the ESPY on Wednesday night, Obama wore a black Cushnie et Ochs dress. The custom piece was modified from a look from the brand’s fall 2017 ready-to-wear collection with the 53-year-old’s version being in black and sans sequins.
At the 25th annual awards show in Los Angeles, Obama honored the late Eunice Kennedy Shriver, John F. Kennedy’s sister and founder of the Special Olympics in 1968, with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.
“I am here tonight to honor a remarkable woman,” she said. “A woman who believed everyone has something to contribute and everyone deserves to push themselves to find out what they’re made of and to compete and win. She knew that when we give others a chance to fulfill our greatest potential, we all win.”
Obama’s look — and presence, in general — sent the Internet into a tizzy.
In addition to Obama’s looking incredible, her presence had such a major impact because this marks just one of few public appearances since January. In each, though, she’s displayed a more relaxed and edgier look than the previous eight years.
