    Michelle Obama has had many a show-stopping style moment during her time as the First Lady of America, and has become quite the fashion icon in the eyes of the world. In our opinion, she’s been nailing it in the style stakes from day one.

    We’ve learnt some of the best life lessons from Michelle Obama over the years, she is, after all, one seriously wise woman. What’s more, her and Barack are arguably the realest couple around – giving us serious couple goals.

    Now that the US election results are in and Donald Trump has officially been chosen as the next President of America, the Obama’s time in the White House is sadly drawing to a close. With many of us still wondering how Donald Trump won so many votes during the election and what on earth Trump as President means for America.

    Therefore, we’ve decided to look back at Michelle’s sensational style file and round up all of the times she was our style hero. From the amazing royal blue dress she wore to this year’s Democratic National Convention in Pennsylvania, which is where she gave that kick ass speech everyone is still talking about, to the breathtakingly beautiful rose gold dress that has to be seen to be believed we’ve round up all the times the First lady of fashion was our style hero.

    It’s clear from looking at her style evolution that Michelle Obama can pretty much wear any colour she likes and still look amazing (oh, the envy). She’s pretty fearless when it comes to her wardrobe, whether she’s keeping it simple when it comes to colour, or going all out with bold patterns and prints. Whether her gowns are long or short, she always looks amazing. Don’t believe us? Just take a look for yourself in our gallery below.
