Michelle Obama always delivers in the style department and last night at the State of the Union Address was no exception, as she donned a custom-made forest green(emerald) Azzedine Alaïa cardigan and dress from the Tunisian-born designer’s collection.
FLOTUS ’s relationship with the designer isn’t a new one, back in 2011 she wore a black dress from Alaïa to the NATO concert in Baden-Baden, Germany. The designer is known for coming to defense of the First Lady when designer Oscar de la Renta had some commentary about the First Lady’s style back in 2011. He is noted to have said “It’s not up to him to give her lessons; Michelle Obama is of her time; Oscar de la Renta is no longer.”
