Michelle Obama’s fashion game has always been straight fire, but last night, the former FLOTUS took things up a notch — way up — when she stepped on stage at the ESPYs in LA to honor Eunice Kennedy Shriver, the late founder of the Special Olympic Games.

Rather than the sheath dresses or designer ballgowns we’ve grown accustomed to seeing the 53-year-old in during her eight years in the White House, Obama brought the heat in a sizzling Cushnie et Ochs bodycon dress with an asymmetric cutout neckline that we couldn’t tear our eyes away from.

She expertly paired the fire-inducing frock with leather Gianvito Rossi pumps, Jennifer Fisher jewels, and Hearts of Fire diamond stacking rings, like this Double-Row Eternity Right Hand Ring ($7,500), and this Truly Classic Four-Row Right Hand Ring ($8,990). Wowza!

We’ve gotta say: She NAILED it. Even her slicked-back coif was on point!

As jeweler Jennifer Fisher told WWD of the look, “Michelle Obama embodies a level of effortless confidence and personal style that every American woman, no matter her age or demographic, can appreciate and emulate.” Hear, hear!

It appears that time off from the daily dealings of the White House has done our former First Lady good!
