Michelle Obama Visits Grocery Store In LBD (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

Every first lady must learn to dress for a roster of traditional occasions, from the state dinner and the State of the Union to the international goodwill tour and the annual tree lighting.

Michelle Obama has added another category: the grocery store visit.

This Thursday, Mrs. O found herself at the National Supermarket in Tampa, Florida, promoting "Mi Plato," or "My Plate," to reach Hispanic families in her campaign for healthy eating.

For the colorful photo opp, which had her posing against a display of fresh veggies, Michelle went dark in a sleek black dress with white and gray detailing. Sporting medium-height black pumps, the first lady looked confident and serious while addressing the crowd.

It was our favorite grocery store outfit yet, better than the Tracy Reese black-and-white striped sweater she wore in October at a Chicago supermarket and the somewhat unflattering gray sheath and boots she sported at a Walmart last January.

Although honestly, the pictures always come out great either way. Bright fruits and vegetables make an awesome backdrop.
