Michelle Obama looked absolutely stunning during President Obama's State of the Union address on Tuesday. FLOTUS literally glowed in her two-toned Jason Wu sheath, complete with a glittering maroon skirt, black detailed neckline and an Alexis Bittar floral brooch. Did we say she looked stunning?

Of course, we had great expectations for Mrs. O's ensemble -- her blue Barbara Tfank number from last year's speech set quite a high sartorial bar for 2013. But even though we're fans of the look, the first murmurings on Twitter seemed to veer on criticism.

"Michelle Obama is in a stunning dress but appears ready for a cocktail party rather than a speech," Carol Joynt, Editor at Large for The Washingtonian, tweeted.

"Michelle Obama dressed for where she'd rather be tonight #SOTU," added comedian Abbi Crutchfield.

While we agree that Michelle's dress could do double-duty, we think it was a lovely choice of formal wear for the big night. But what about you? Take a look at the photos below and tell us what you think!
