Michelle Obama Wore Maria Pinto to the White House

By

Michelle Obama wore a simple red Mario Pinto sheath dress to greet the Bushes at the White House yesterday. After the controversial Narciso Rodriguez dress she wore on Election Night, The Wall Street Journal has dubbed yesterday's safe choice a "palate cleanser." Pinto said Obama bought the dress, which retails for $750, over the summer. Pinto had hoped Obama would wear the dress on Election Night, but the First Lady–elect still has one Pinto creation she's yet to wear — a "black cashmere number with 'cascade effect' in back."
