Michelle Obama's Penchant For Hot Pink Is Everywhere

The astute folks over at WWD noticed that Michelle Obama’s favorite color might be the same as Paris Hilton’s. The First Lady appears on the May 2010 issue of Conde Nast Traveler wearing a hot pink sheath dress designed by Diane Von Furstenberg that looks a lot like the Jason Wu dress (check out his blog) that she wore on the March 2009 cover of Vogue. Mrs. Obama also wore a hot pink dress two years ago for the October 2008 issue of MORE Magazine.

It’s obvious why they all agreed on this color: it looks great against her skin tone and  it pops on the magazine covers, but you don’t have to be a First Lady to wear hot pink. Here’s a figure flattering option that’s under $100.

This T Tahari ‘Perla’ Dress ($98) has a high waist that emphasizes the smallest part of the body. The scoop neckline works  for all bust sizes while the pink color is perfect for spring.
