America did the right thing at the polls this time around. I'm so happy, even Michelle Obama's odd election night dress is looking good right now. The crisscross empire waist and side panels are meant to be strategically slimming, I believe. Sure, the swath of red splashed across the front is disconcerting, but hey, she's got time now to develop her own unique look as First Lady. As a matching unit, the Obamas were positively glowing on election night. Sasha is adorable in an LBD (Little Black Dress) with big bow. Malia is a gangly rose of a girl in bright red bubble-hem cocktail dress with red sash. And President Elect Obama himself–flawless.
