Our First Lady has no fear when it comes to the color wheel!

This is one First Lady who will never fade into the background, as she proved on election night in scarlet Narciso Rodriguez (center). Patriotic, bold and (dare we say?) sexy, it's the perfect complement to Mrs. Obama's White House role. 03 of 08 Orange Lawrence Jackson; Patrick van Katwijk/DPA/ABACAUSA; Jim Young/Landov WHY IT WORKS FOR HERThis hue is as warm and bright as the First Lady herself! Whether greeting dignitaries or dropping by the Met, Mrs. Obama projects her personality in glowing shades of saffron and tangerine. 04 of 08 Yellow Olivier Douliery /ABACAUSA;Ron Edmonds/AP Photo; Jason Reed/Landov WHY IT WORKS FOR HERThe Obamas are all about hope, even when facing difficult times.

You're welcome, photographers! 06 of 08 Blue Polaris; Pete Souza/White House/Sipa; Saul Loeb/AFP/Getty WHY IT WORKS FOR HERAt 45, Michelle Obama was the youngest First Lady to enter the White House since Jacqueline Kennedy, so it's only fitting that she would have a fresh take on a politician's go-to color. Her secret? Instead of choosing neutral shades of navy and slate, she selects pieces in eye-popping cobalt hues. 07 of 08 Indigo Mark Wilson/Getty; Olivier Douliery /ABACAUSA; Chris Kleponis/AFP/Getty WHY IT WORKS FOR HERMrs. Obama loves classics with a twist and Inky indigo is the ultimate complexion-enhancing alternative to basic black. The First Lady sported an all-plum look at a political luncheon (center) and even put together a range of the shade for a casual cardigan-topped gardening look (right). 08 of 08 Violet Jonathan Ernst/Reuters; Rex USA; Charles Ommanney/Getty WHY IT WORKS FOR HERFeminine and strong, violet is the perfect shade to show off Mrs. Obama's ultra-fit shape. Who can forget her workout-inspiring campaign entrance in a sleeveless Mario Pinto sheath (center) or her ultra-glamorous appearance in Peter Sorenen at this year's Kennedy Center Honors (left)?
