Just before the mother-of-two shared the sweet Instagram post, The Hill announced that hundreds turned up at the Washington book signing Michelle hosted to celebrate the first anniversary of the release of her memoir, “Becoming.”

As expected, the former first lady dressed the part in a black ensemble. However, that ensemble doesn’t beat the outfit she wore to the American Portrait Gala, which The Cut is calling “one of her best outfits ever.”

According to The Cut, Michelle made a statement in a custom Schiaparelli haute-couture gown, which was lemon yellow with a glittering cage bustier draped over it.

Vogue further reveals that Michelle’s look got inspired by Elsa Schiaparelli’s love for lively color and couture-level construction.

The mother-of-two shined in the gown, which gleamed from the subtle diamonds placed on it, and fans are convinced that yellow suits her best.
