All eyes may be on Pope Francis for his historic first visit to the United States, but we can't stop looking at Michelle Obama's pristine style.

As the Pope addressed an enthused crowd from the White House's South Lawn, Michelle was right behind the pontiff generating a buzz of her own—for her on point outfit, that is. FLOTUS whipped out a fall-perfect frock (yep, it's officially the first day of autumn today!) for the occasion, opting for a delicate midnight blue dress with a guipure lace bodice and a flared jacquard skirt. The refined Monique Lhuillier number comes from the designer's fall 2015 collection, and is just one of several pieces that Mrs. Obama has sported by her (most recently, that enchanting sunrise-print coat).

Rewind to yesterday, when Michelle donned yet another ladylike frock in the form of a polished Carolina Herrera dress to greet Pope Francis at the Andrews Air Force Base outside Washington, D.C. alongside Barack Obama. The cowl-neck design also featured the first lady's favored fit-and-flare silhouette, and the cap sleeved detail and slender waist belt added an even more delicate touch to the feminine number. After giving it a closer look, this looks like something Jackie O might've chosen for herself back in her day.

All in all, these are just two more examples of why Mrs. Obama's a master of classy style—and why we're looking forward to seeing what else is in her wardrobe for Pope Francis' visit.
