Michelle Obama Wows In Green Gown At Kennedy Center Honors (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Despite all the praise we give Michelle Obama for her endearingly accessible, J. Crew-filled wardrobe, we live for those moments of high-wattage First Lady glamour. On Sunday night for her fifth Kennedy Center Honors appearance, FLOTUS delivered in a dramatic strapless Marchesa gown, a teal number with a flowing skirt and fitted bodice.

The folded fabric of the bodice is similar to that of the blue Vera Wang dress FLOTUS wore at the 2011 Kennedy Center Honors and the Doo.Ri gown she wore at a 2011 state dinner. The standout feature of this dress, however, were the elegantly draped fabric pieces that highlighted those famous biceps.

As President Obama once noted, "You can be stylish and powerful too -- that's Michelle’s advice." Amen to that.

Check out the first lady's latest red carpet look. Are you feeling it?
