We've sung Rachel Roy's praises numerous times before, honoring her as one of the most fashionable designers in the industry.
So we reserved judgment when we saw the FLOTUS fave step out last night in pajamas.
That's right, Roy wore straight-up sleepwear to the premiere of "One Day," the new film starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess. Contrasting with the bright red carpet, Roy rocked a subtle blue-and-white striped PJ ensemble, paired with a brown leather clutch, black sandals by Manolo Blahnik and thick black glasses.
"I have an eleven-year-old and I like to show her that it's OK to take fashion risks and to have fun and tell a story with fashion," Roy explained to InStyle. "I also believe in balance. It was hard for me to find something to go with these shoes where I didn't feel too dressed up and too done. So I thought, this is how I can wear these shoes by Mr. Blahnik!"
It was definitely a fashion risk (we can already see Roy landing on this week's "Worst Dressed" lists), but we admire the designer for her bold choice. Plus, how comfortable must she be? We're think everyone else walking the red carpet must have been secretly jealous.
