Based on last nights tweets, the fashion community seems to be very happy to welcome four more years of Michelle Obama's outfits. As are, no doubt, the designers and brands who profit from all that Mobama exposure. After last night's election, the First Lady kicked off her sartorial victory tour in a brocade Michael Kors sheath dress, which Styleite reports she previously wore in November 2011. No one seems to be able to identify where Sasha and Malia's outfits came from yet, but rest assured that both looked totally chic and age-appropriate. Malia sported a skirt in democratic blue and a black scoopneck top, which she paired with a hot pink skinny belt and flats. Sasha, who always looks like she thinks this whole thing is just so silly, wore a skirt in a bright green print paired with a black blouse sporting an oversized bow detail and mint green cap-toe flats. She and her mama both layered up with cardigan shrugs.
