Michelle Obama: Azzedine Alaia vs. Michael Kors

Michelle Obama went New York chic last Tuesday night for the Time 100 Gala. She wore a black square neck, floor sweeping, black, cinched dress.

At first the double face wool crepe stunner was attributed to Azzedine Alaia (designer of the black belt she paired with the infamous purple dress that propelled her into Fashion stardom). But it turns out that our own NYC designer and Project Runway judge, Michael Kors is the one behind the dress. Someone didn't do their homework!

Also at the gala, Jimmy Fallon had some interesting things to say about meeting the First Lady. "I'm very excited," he said. "Honestly you could feel the buzz in New York City. Everyone's talking about it, everyone's excited about it. I think she's gorgeous. She has very good arm muscles. Very good biceps so I'm practicing my push ups and my pull-ups just to try and even compare." We couldn't agree more! :) What do you think is our First Lady's best quality or asset?

Just a thought...
