First Lady Michelle Obama sat front-row to watch President Barack Obama debate Republican Nominee Mitt Romney tonight in Denver.
She wore a regal indigo-purple tailored three-quarter sleeve jacket over a matching dress which featured a watercolor floral print silk bodice and a knee-length tailored pencil skirt. The dress and jacket are by London-based label Preen by Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi. The ensemble is from the label's Fall 2011 collection, which you can see here.
Here is the look on the runway in February 2011. A full-length photo:
And a closer-up shot:
Romney's wife, Ann Romney, wore an off-white long-sleeve tailored zip-up suit paired with a two-strand pearl necklace.
