While the focus of Wednesday's Presidential Medal of Freedom ceremony may have been the 17 recipients, we couldn't help but notice Michelle Obama. The First Lady always manages to catch our eye with her ladylike but still on-trend fashion choices, and this occasion was no different. 

For the ceremony, which was held at the White House, the FLOTUS opted for one of her go-to American designers, Michael Kors. Obama paired her paisley-print short-sleeve dress with sensible black pointed flats. 

And while she may have been the best-dressed in the room, that's not to say she didn't have plenty of competition. Among the recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom were a few Hollywood heavy-hitters, including Barbra Streisand, Gloria Estefan, and Steven Spielberg.
