Michelle Obama is sticking to her tried-and-true designer Maria Pinto for her Democratic National Convention speech tonight. Per WWD, Pinto—who opened her first shop earlier this month in Chicago—described the dress as "a turquoise blue, three-quarter-sleeve sheath-like, fitted, Fifties-inspired style in double-faced wool." Hm, did the choice of color have anything to do with the palette of the DNC stage? Obama will be a complementary addition to the dais, and fabulously accessorized, no doubt.
