Election Day Fashion: Michelle Obama’s Campaign Trail Style

It’s actually kind of hard to deny that first lady Michelle Obama is the best-dressed woman on the campaign trail — and she’s not even running for office.

The first lady has been hard at work in recent weeks and months pushing for individual Democratic congressional and senatorial candidates, as well as doing her part to raise money for the Democratic National Committee. Her wardrobe of fun yet professional and feminine clothing serves her just as well when she’s having dinner with Donna Karan in New York as it does when she’s stumping for Sen. Harry Reid in Las Vegas.

But what we love the most about Michelle Obama is that her sartorial choices aren’t the only thing that brings people to her campaign events in droves — her reputation and approval rating have increased while a lot of other politicians have gotten less and less popular. Whether that’s because she has the smarts to back up her smart fashion choices or because she’s actually just a really good person, we can’t say. What we can say is that if elections were based whether you liked a candidate’s clothing (and yeah, we guess to some extent they are) then Michelle Obama would have been president a long, long time ago.

Take a look at the photos, and don’t forget to vote!
