Michelle Obama wore a purple Maria Pinto dress on the campaign trail
in June. Pinto has been the First Lady-elect's go-to designer for the past few years.
Obama would look incredible in a strapless, full-skirted style like the hunter green gown from Pinto's Fall 2008 collection. “I see her sleek but with more froth," the designer told WWD
. "It’s right for the moment. I don’t see her in a big, poofy ball skirt."
