In President Obama's milquetoast State of the Union address last night, we learned—as my colleague Anna so succinctly put it—that being conciliatory works for no one. As it turns out, both of the Obamas have been drinking that placatory kool-aid. Michelle, what is with the Michael Kors?!?

Like, yes, Mo was giving us Strong Woman Realness with that Olivia Pope neckline on a dress straight from the set of The Good Wife:

However, last year's shimmering, perfect Alaïa this ain't. Michael Kors is the king of pandering to middle America, and FLOTUS knows it—her 2014 ensemble elicited whispers of "un-American" (Azzedine Alaïa being Tunisian), and it looks like she's taken things in a more conservative direction this year.

YOU GUYS. EVERYONE WILL LIKE YOU BETTER IF YOU JUST BE YOURSELVES.
