Michelle Obama Gives A Nod To Blue-Loving Democrats In Christian Siriano At DNC

First lady of the U.S., Michelle Obama endorsed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia on Monday. As a style-setter in her own right, Michelle gave a nod to the blue-loving Republicans gathered at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in a blue Christian Siriano dress.

The 52-year-old Michelle Obama’s dress featured cobalt blue silk crepe, cap sleeves, a flared skirt and a neat waist. FLOTUS kept the patriotic theme in mind as her blue dress completely matched the blue backdrop. This is the second time that Michelle opted for a dress by the 30-year-old American designer, WWD reports.

The mother-of-two wore a black dress at the funeral for the police officers killed in Dallas earlier in July by Christian Siriano. In spite of the subdued color of her dress, FLOTUS carried forward a message of “inclusiveness” through the designer’s creation, New York Times reports.

“She never buckles under pressure, never takes the easy way out and Hillary Clinton has never quit on anything in her life,” said Michelle, endorsing her predecessor. Without taking the name of Donald Trump, she managed to throw shade at the Republican presidential candidate.

“Don’t stoop to their level. Our motto is, when they go low, we go high,” she said to loud cheers and applauds. FLOTUS herself shines the light on “Let Girls Learn” initiative, which is very close to her heart. Through her “Let’s Move” program, Michelle Obama threw light on the obesity epidemic.

However, the loudest Trump bashing came in the form of a video that starred the economist Austan Goolsbee and actor Ken Jeong. The former tells Jeong that most of the Donald Trump-branded clothing line is not Made in the U.S.A., but in Bangladesh, China, Mexico and other countries. It is a stark contrast to Trump’s assertion of America.

Meanwhile, President Barack Obama is scheduled to speak at the DNC on Wednesday, while Hillary Clinton will make her appearance only on Thursday where she will be introduced by her daughter Chelsea.
