On Monday night we watched the third and final presidential debate for two reasons: To hear what the two candidates had to say (obviously) and because, like every other fashion-conscious woman in this country, we were curious to see what Michelle Obama was wearing. And we’re here to discuss the latter.

When the First Lady appeared on-screen, we immediately recognized the gray-and-black lace dress she was wearing. That’s because it’s the same custom Thom Browne design she chose for the night of President Obama’s Democratic National Convention speech last month.

Since Obama is no stranger to recycling her wardrobe (she’s been spotted in the same cobalt blue Preen outfit three times), she’s quite the pro at making an old look seem unique and fresh.

The first time the FLOTUS wore the frock, she went minimal with accessories (save for a pair of silver earrings). But last night, she dressed up the Thom Browne creation with a sparkly ribbon brooch and a black satin belt. Tell us: What do you think of Obama’s Thom Browne dress?
