Michelle Obama chooses Narciso Rodriguez again

January 18, 2009 |  9:10 pm


Undeterred by the stir caused by her red-and-black Narciso Rodriguez election night dress, Michelle Obama chose to wear a camel-and-black color-block coat and skirt by the New York designer for the "We Are One" concert in Washington on Sunday. The graphic style made her stand out against the marble edifice as she and Barack Obama descended the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. She looked strong, elegant and, above all, modern.
