Ann Romney’s Concession Dress: Ending in Red

Paul Ryan (R-WI), and wife, Janna Ryan after conceding the presidency during Mitt Romney's campaign election night event at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center on November 7, 2012 in Boston, Massachusetts. After voters went to the polls in the heavily contested presidential race, networks projected incumbent U.S. President Barack Obama has won re-election against Republican candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.  (Photo by Matthew Cavanaugh/Getty Images)

After a prolonged wait for Mitt Romney's concession speech, we finally heard his prayers for America and got to see the last outfit Ann picked as First Lady hopeful. Was this the same dress she was planning to wear had Mitt won? Perhaps we'll never know. The dress she chose was red, of course, and relatively unremarkable, with a boatneck, three-quarter sleeves, and a knee-length hemline. She paired it with black patent pumps, a necklace made of large, milky gemstones, and a rare updo. As she has throughout her husband's campaign (well, most of it), she looked composed and elegant. So long, Ann! It's been real.
