Michelle Obama wore custom-made Tracy Reese dress for DNC speech
The sleeveless dress showed off Obama's famously toned arms and the length modestly skirted her knees. The president's wife paired the dress with pink pumps from J. Crew and her fingernails were painted a trendy purple-grey.
Reese described the dress as a "silk jacquard in an abstract baroque wallpaper pattern" with a bodice in hot pink woven with rust and copper. It's not the first time Obama chose a design by Reese, an African American designer who is showing a new collection Sunday during New York Fashion Week.
In an email, Reese said the first lady "looked incredible and spoke beautifully; I am so honoured that she chose to wear one of my designs for such a memorable occasion."
