Michele Bachmann Looks Better Than Ever In Black & White Dress In Tampa (PHOTOS)

Now that she's slipped out of both the literal and proverbial Republican primary candidate suit, Michele Bachmann is breathing a little easier -- and dressing a little less formally, too.

The Minnesota representative re-emerged at Tampa Bay Church on Sunday to rally Tea Party supporters ahead of the 2012 Republican Convention, which hesitantly began Monday during inclement weather. Although her remarks were certainly controversial, her outfit caught our eye. When was the last time you saw Michele Bachmann looking so radiant?

Bachmann, who was voted #10 on The Hill's "50 Most Beautiful People" in D.C. list, channeled Jennifer Aniston in her black-and-white striped dress, perhaps the chic-est look we've seen on her yet. The 56-year-old accessorized with black heels and a royal-engagement-ring-looking piece of jewelry on her right hand.

And it keeps getting better. Beauty-wise, Bachmann seems to have ditched her heavy makeup and fake nails and looked refreshed and polished.

Now that's bipartisan chic for sure.
