The world carefully followed along with eight years of Michelle Obama's FLOTUS style, and we've all been patiently awaiting her next moves, post-White House. Is this our answer to how MObama's look might change now that she's a civilian? The former First Lady turned to one of her favorite young American brands, Cushnie Et Ochs, for a show-stopping little black dress at last night's ESPY Awards.
This is one of Michelle's first major public appearances since leaving the White House — she's mostly been taking some well-deserved vacation since then, traveling the globe from Palm Springs to Polynesia to Italy. At the ESPY Awards, Michelle honored the late Eunice Kennedy Shriver with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award and shared the stage with Special Olympics athletes.
Michelle's worn Cushnie Et Ochs throughout her two terms as First Lady, so that's nothing new. But even though this long-sleeve dress is covered up, the asymmetrical neckline gives it an edgier, polished look. No necklace needed! MObama accessorized with chunky Jennifer Fisher earrings and rings, according to Women's Wear Daily, and she continues to work with her DC dream team including stylist Meredith Koop, makeup artist Carl Ray, and hairstylist Yene Damtew.
Michelle's in good company with her love for Cushnie Et Ochs: stars like Olivia Munn, Bella Hadid, Khloe Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Ashley Graham, and Hailey Baldwin have all worn the design duo's sleek dresses and jumpsuits.
