Illustration for article titled Why Is Michelle Obama Pandering With This Michael Kors Shite?

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?!?

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.

I dunno. Maybe I'm too middle America but I think it's a great dress. If I had fancy places to go, I would totally wear that.
