Foxy First Lady Rocks The DNC
As Jimmie Hendrix said, 'Foxy Lady' Indeed!
Michelle Obama took the podium at the Democratic National Convention Tuesday night in a dress that rocked the Internet with rave reviews - from Twitter to Facebook!
The sleveless dress was designed by Tracy Reese, a NYC based African-American designer that originally hails from Detroit.
“In the midst of fashion week preparations, seeing the First Lady in one of my designs was a truly extraordinary moment,” Reese told the NCY Daily News.
“In the end you have to wear what you feel good in, especially when you're giving a big speech," she said. "The last thing I want to worry about is what I'm wearing.”
And judging by the response via social media tonight, America loved what she was wearing. She hit a home run on night one!
You Go Girl!
