Michelle Obama managed to steal the spotlight for a moment during President Barack Obama's State of the Union address last night, thanks to her stunning Azzedine Alaia emerald green full-skirted dress and matching jacket, a look that everyone was buzzing about on social media.

What makes this ensemble so unique for the First Lady is that it's the first time Obama has chosen a non-American-based designer for such an occasion—see her Jason Wu frock in 2013, the blue Barbara Tfank dress in 2012, and a silk Rachel Roy silver shift dress in 2011. Mrs. Obama is no a stranger to the Paris-based designer, she has previously wore one of his creations back in 2009 during a trip to Germany and we have to admit, the designer's signature textured pieces suit the First Lady just perfectly.
