Caroline Kennedy's Democratic Convention Dress Feels FLOTUS-y (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

When Caroline Kennedy strode out onto the 2012 Democratic National Convention stage, our first thought was, "FLOTUS!"

As in, First Lady Michelle Obama. Kennedy, who spoke in support of President Obama on the final night of the DNC, wore a sleeveless sheath with particularly high arm holes, highlighting her toned limbs. She also had on what looked to be Christian Louboutins, emphasizing her savvy style (it's in her blood, after all).

In her speech, the only living heir to former President John F. Kennedy praised Obama's support for women and how her uncle would have admired the current president. "Barack Obama is the kind of leader my father wrote about in 'Profiles In Courage,'" she told the crowd. "He doesn't just do what's easy. He does what's hard. He does what's right."

While some pundits deemed her oratory skills inferior to those of her father and uncles, from where we were sitting Kennedy certainly looked the part of powerful public figure. Think she borrowed the frock from Michelle?
