After opting for Azzedine Alaïa at last year's State of the Union address, Michelle Obama went all-American this year.

(It appears to be a version of this look from Kors's fall 2013 collection. The jacket is available on Neiman Marcus's site.) Let's hope it has enough give for all of the endless sitting and standing (and sitting again) that being a SOTU audience member entails.
