Michelle Obama Responds To McQueen Dress Saga: 'Women, Wear What You Love'

We're totally ready to turn the page on Michelle Obama McQueen Dressgate.

For those of you not caught up, here's the saga in a nutshell: the first lady wore British label Alexander McQueen to the State Dinner with China last week. Oscar de la Renta called her out for wearing a non-American designer and the CFDA released a statement expressing its disappointment in her choice. Meanwhile, Michelle donned all-American Rachel Roy to the State of the Union and we thought we'd gotten over all of the fashion drama. But then Cathy Horyn named Mrs. Obama the victim of a sartorial witch hunt and we just couldn't resist asking Joan Rivers what she thought of the whole thing.

And now, FLOTUS has spoken. In an interview with Robin Roberts of "Good Morning America" on Friday, the anchorwoman ventured to bring up the issue among important topics like Obama's reelection campaign, support for military families and Let's Move!

What was Michelle's response? She said, "Look, women, wear what you love. That's all I can say. That's my motto. I wear what I like because...I gotta be in the dress, so..."

Wise words. We think we'll get them printed that on a t-shirt. One made in the USA, of course.
