Tracy Reese Talks To R29 About Dressing MObama

While we're still reeling from the First Lady's appearance at the DNC last night, apparently we're not the only ones with a serious FLOTUS crush. Michelle knocked one out of the park, sartorially speaking (does she ever not?), with a custom Tracy Reese sheath that was equally flattering and perfect for the occasion. The incredibly busy designer (her NYFW show is this weekend!) was smitten to discover her design made it onto the First Lady for the big night. We caught up with Tracy in the midst of her spring '13 preparations to get her opinion on last night's momentous outfit. "Seeing the First Lady in one of my designs was truly an extraordinary moment," says Reese. "She evokes so much confidence, strength, and humility. I am so proud she chose to wear our dress!" We couldn't have said it better ourselves, Tracy.
