Michelle Obama Stuns in Sleeveless Jason Wu Dress at State of the Union

Michelle Obama cheered husband Barack Obama at last night's State of the Union address, but she also showed her support for the other man in her life: Jason Wu.

That's right, the fashionable first lady stepped out—yet again!—in a Wu creation, this time donning a darling black-and-oxblood  A-line dress from his pre-fall 2013 collection. A girly-glam glittering skirt and a sweet Alexis Bittar floral brooch offset the dress's edgy leather trim.

We think it's pretty fair to say the designer has, ahem, Wu-ed Michelle, who reached for his white one-shoulder gown for the 2009 Inaugural ball and, more recently, his custom-made red chiffon number for the 2012 ball.

And Wu seems to be pretty fond of the FLOTUS, too. He altered the design on his A-line dress for Michelle, changing the original, cleavage-baring halter style into a high neckline and nixing leather insets for more modest piping in the tough girl material.  

But where politics are involved, scandal usually follows, and many of Michelle's fellow Americans took to Twitter to criticize the fact that she wore a sleeveless dress to the State of the Union.

We can't say we blame Michelle. After all, if our arms were as sculpted as hers, we'd take every opportunity to show them off, too!
