Michelle Obama wore Jason Wu (once again) for last night's State of the Union address—but this time with a twist. The burgundy and black leather dress is a modified version of a cocktail look from the designer's pre-fall 2013 collection. The designer converted the black leather spaghetti straps in his original into a full-coverage boat neck that still allowed the First Lady to display her infamously sculpted arms, along with a repeat Alexis Bittar floral brooch. “To have maximum effect at a big occasion doesn’t necessary mean having to wear a loud and overly embellished dress,” Wu once told InStyle.com. “Sometimes less is more.” This dress is a prime example of his vision. So, do you like her custom look?
