Michelle Obama easily stole the show on the first night of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. She delivered a moving speech to endorse the presumptive nominee, Hillary Clinton, in a royal blue Christian Siriano dress.

Of course, Mrs. Obama chose an American designer to make clear her belief that this country is still great.
Siriano is the much-talked-about veteran of Project Runway who made a name for himself with his structured gowns and inclusive approach to couture.  Recently, he stepped in to dress comedian Leslie Jones when others wouldn't.

With these things in mind,  Mrs. Obama couldn't have made a stronger statement visually. Though the knee-length dress  and silver accessories matched perfectly the color scheme of the stage and backdrop, Mrs. Obama could be easily seen.

Pairing a warm, vibrant hue with a soft silhouette underscores the First Ladies efforts to be seen as maternal but also resolute. With her words and style she made a clear case beauty of American democracy.
