When Michelle Obama made an appearance at the 2018 American Library Association Annual Conference in New Orleans, her dress commanded attention. Rightfully so – the former FLOTUS was discussing her new memoir Becoming, which will be released in November. Michelle’s electric yellow-green design got a feminine touch from flutter sleeves and was cinched at the waist with a dark cranberry belt, though no accessory could tone such a vibrant outfit down.
Perfect for a boss lady with a conference in the Summer, this look is not for the faint of heart, but for those determined to stand out. It’s exactly what we always hope to see Michelle wearing. Read on to get an all-angles view of Michelle on stage speaking with Dr. Carla Hayden, the 14th Librarian of Congress, then shop for bold silhouettes in the same shade if you’re as inspired as we are.
