Just because Michelle Obama doesn’t make as many public appearances as she used to, doesn’t mean her style game is any different. Case in point: Her latest vacation in Italy, and most recently, the 2017 Espy Awards on Wednesday night. The former First Lady and American style icon presented the Arthur Ashe Courage Award to Timothy Shriver, in honor of his mother and Special Olympics founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver.
For the special occasion, Obama’s go-to stylist Meredith Koop chose a look that was similar to one from the Cushnie et Ochs Fall 2017 collection. The little black dress was originally created in navy for the runway, and while the cool cutouts are still the same, Obama’s version opted out of any sequined details. The result is a sleek-and-chic LBD that’s anything but boring, accented with equally edgy heels and silver statement jewelry from Jennifer Fisher. Don’t be surprised if you see us imitating this entire ensemble for our next night out.
