Did Michelle Obama Channel The Good Wife's Alicia at the State of the Union Address?

How much do we all wish we were just like The Good Wife‘s Alicia Florrick?

Maybe we should ask Michelle Obama if she feels the same way.

During Tuesday’s State of the Union address, the First Lady could be seen wearing what appears to be the same suit worn by Julianna Margulies, who plays the First Lady of Illinois on CBS’s hit drama series. An eagle-eyed fan made the connection and posted the comparison shots on Instagram, generating lots of buzz and OMGs on social media.

Alicia wore the outfit in the season 5 episode, The Decision Tree, which aired on Dec. 1, 2013.

Actually, the true beneficiary of the State of the Union fashion show is Michael Kors, who designed the first lady’s jacket and skirt for his fall 2013 collection. But that’s not nearly as interesting as who wore it first, right?

It’s no secret that Florrick’s clothes are both trendy and hugely appealing. If anything, her look – as well as the cool togs worn by Kalinda, a.k.a. Archie Panjabi – has boosted the profile of costume designer Dan Lawson, who has collaborated with a London-based company on togs for business women and is even designing accessories with a New York jewelry company.

In any case, Mrs. Obama, you have excellent taste.
