Obama’s dress, a look from the American design duo Cushnie et Ochs‘ fall 2017 collection, was the epitome of fancy. To be honest, the very classic in nature black sheath was what we expect from one of our most stylish first ladies ever. After all Obama’s ability to command in the sheath during her reign as first lady is why the staple continues to enjoy is millennial popularity — with and without sleeves.

But what made the dress sing sweet fashion harmony were its sleek V-cutouts along the neckline. And those pointy-toed stilettos that expertly wrapped around the ankle pulled her statuesque look together.

Even in her post-first lady splendor, we can’t get enough of Michelle Obama’s style.
