4 more years...of Michelle Obama's awesome outfit recycling
Barack Obama's victory in yesterday's presidential election doesn't just mean four more years of Democratic leadership in the White House. It means four more years of wardrobe remixes from the first lady!
When the president took the stage with his family after the announcement of last night's victory, you may have noticed that Michelle Obama's look was a bit familiar. The burgundy silk brocade dress, by Michael Kors, was in fact a repeat.
She wore it in 2010, at a ceremony honoring Army Staff Sergeant Salvatore Giunta, with a cropped black cardigan and a pin by Alexis Bittar. But that wasn't even the first time we'd seen it.

She was photographed in the same dress in 2009, descending the White House steps with her husband.

Whether last night's outfit choice was a nod to economic austerity in the president's next term or just another chance to shop her closet, we're as thrilled as ever that the first lady is keeping it real with her wardrobe. We can't wait for four more years of cutting-edge fashion ... and inspiration to mix things up with our own favorite pieces! Bravo, Mrs. O, for making outfit repeats not just kosher, but cool.

Are you kidding me people? Who cares if she's wearing the same dress! To me, that shoes that she's not SPENDING TAX PAYERS money on new dresses for every event....GET A GRIP PEOPLE.....
Michelle Obama is not the first lady, the daughters are not the first daughter, their father is dishonest, a liar, and not a leader, he buffaloed the ignorant one more time.
Michelle O is a disgrace with her contemptuous attitude and she offers nothing to America, only America is offering more money for her to spend on trips etc.
Stop referrring to her as "First Lady" she is far from first and far from being a lady. She is more of the wicked witch of the west from Wizard of Oz .
