She was one of the few Oscars guests who didn’t sing a tune, dance a few steps or clutch a trophy, but Michelle Obama’s surprise appearance during Sunday night’s awards show was still one of the most talked-about moments of the broadcast.

She wore her bangs straight down but pulled the rest of her hair back into a low bun.

Though it would have made our night if she had gotten dressed to the nines just to present the award from the White House, Obama actually was taking a quick break from hosting the Governors Dinner — so no word on what she thought of the Les Misérables performance or Seth MacFarlane’s hosting job.

Tell us: Were you surprised to see Michelle Obama? What did you think of her outfit?
