Michelle Obama Wears Preen Dress Twice, Still Not Like The Rest Of Us (PHOTOS)

It's not very often that we deem any dress our favorite, let alone a FLOTUS ensemble (you can imagine how easy it is to become overwhelmed by the possibilities). But when Michelle Obama stepped out in her color-blocked Preen sheath last month, we felt pretty comfortable going out on a limb.

In an awesome twist of fate, Michelle opted for that same Preen dress for Disney's Magic of Healthy Living event in Washington, D.C. This time around, however, she added a few more details to her look. In addition to blue pumps, FLOTUS wore a pale yellow collarless blazer and a double strand of pearls.

Maybe it's just us, but doesn't the dress look better without all of the ladylike bells and whistles? When Mrs. O first wore the outfit at the 2012 Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, the simplicity of her look worked with the modern cut and pattern of the dress. Even though we think the blazer and pearls feel a bit forced, Michelle always manages to look chic overall.

Also, with so many sartorial options, it's interesting to see the first lady in an already-worn dress yet again. Which of her dresses do you hope she rocks for a second time?

Take a look at the photos below and tell us what you think of the updated look.
