It seems that a bunch of women hopped on their laptops the minute they saw first lady Michelle Obama come sashaying through the Capitol for the State of the Union address Tuesday night, wearing a body-conscious dress that was absolutely stunning.


It was a marigold Narciso Rodriguez "sleeveless banded-bodice midi dress" that retailed for $2,095 and sold out pretty quickly, People magazine reports.

People on social media certainly approved of her look, showering her with the most beautiful compliments. Many dreaded the idea that this would be the last time we see Michelle at a State of the Union address as first lady.


Cheers to her for going out with a bang.
