As the Obamas prepare to leave the White House, it’s natural to look back on some of their better moments — especially since the incoming prospects are looking so grim. Although Melania is a snappy dresser, and definitely looks beautiful in an evening gown, the First Lady should stand for so much more. Michelle Obama was the perfect example of a classy, elegant woman who could stand on her own, and not only be an ornament to the Presidency, but make some real, lasting changes in America.
Here are a few of the many reasons we’ll miss Michelle after January 20th.
She’s the classiest date
Have you seen that woman wear an evening gown? From the very first Inaugural Ball, Michelle Obama showed that she wasn’t just a pretty face. Her elegance and ability to stand out in a crowd have served her well through her eight years in the White House.
Her final State Dinner outfit sealed the deal. Created by Versace, the custom rose-gold draped ensemble ensured that her style will be remembered for years to come.
