It’s a Wednesday (or so I’m told). Personally, I prefer Mondays, because the promise still exists of a week unblemished by broken resolve. By Wednesday I’ve already bummed myself out and given up on the rest of the week in the hope of starting fresh again on, yes, Monday.

So let’s try and apply balm to the wound with a look back at the most memorable Michelle Obama gowns. She more or less closed her diplomatic FLOTUS career last week in that stunning bronze Versace; it’s high time we took a look at her long and winding road to that high point. I only wish I’d had time to pull it together sooner. I blame first grade homework. It is heinous.
