The First Lady flashed a big smile (and those new bangs!) from the front row in Wu’s custom red organza tweed flounce dress with a black yoke and leather trim. She added an Alexis Bittar sculpted lucite flower brooch with a jeweled center to the shoulder — and skipped the attention-getting nail polish this time.

Tell us: What do you think of Obama’s Jason Wu dress? Are you excited to see more?
