Michelle Obama took to the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington on August 28, 2013 for the 50th Anniversary Ceremony of the March on Washington and Martin Luther King Jr's famous 'I Had A Dream' speech according to USA Today.
The first lady selected a vibrant and flattering Tracy Reese design for the important celebration. The black sleeveless design featured a cinched waist, bateau neckline and giant red poppy flowers. Love, love, love this look for her. It was super figure flattering and uplifting to look at. She added simple stud earrings and black patent pumps with string bow detailing. Check out Michelle's new hair color. What do you think? It does not work for me.
Tracy Reese was a wonderful choice of designer for the event since she is an African American. That alone would not be enough if it were not for her tremendous talent. You might remember that Michelle selected a Tracy Reese design for her appearance at September's Democratic National Convention. The two looks were similar in that they were both sleeveless and the fabrics chosen were both rich and colorful. One look was soft and subtle and the other bold and dramatic.
Other high profile ladies in attendance at the event were Oprah Winfrey of course and Caroline Kennedy.
This was such a wonderful event and Michelle Obama was a bright fashion light. Tracy Reese commented, 'We are honored that the first lady would choose to wear one of our designs during a celebration of such a deeply significant historical moment. Mrs. Obama's radiance makes our dresses shine.'
Let's just say we love Reese to pieces!
We miss you Martin Luther King Jr. Your dream is alive.
