Michelle Obama Wears Tracy Reese at the DNC

Michelle Obama's stirring speech at the Democratic National Convention brought crowds of Obama supporters to their feet, but the pitch-perfect ensemble she wore to the podium deserves its own sartorial salute.

The custom creation by Tracy Reese was fashioned from a rosy pink raw silk that faded into a silvery floral-print panel at the bottom. With a high neckline and simple, sleeveless silhouette, the first lady required few accessories other than J.Crew's suede Everly pumps in pink rhubarb, subtle twinkly earrings and, of course, those killer biceps.

Reese tweeted she was "so honored" shortly after Mrs. Obama appeared on stage.
