We would have had this up sooner, friends, but we were a little distracted by the Mitt Romney-inspired Binders Full of Women Tumblr (personal favorite: all the Beyonce “put three rings on it” jokes). Thank you, Internet. Still what really caught our eye during last night’s presidential debate was the fact that Michelle Obama and Ann Romney wore the exact same shade of hot pink. Some suggested that this was a nod to Breast Cancer Awareness month, but it might also simply be a case of both ladies deciding to hop onboard a good trend. The shade looks good on both ladies, and it’s so refreshing that they’re not sticking to conventional reds and blues. We also rather like the vintage-inspired cuts of both dresses, though it was unfortunate that Romney’s dress suffered a bit from her seated position — as many dresses are apt to do.
Let’s put politics aside for a sec and look at these objectively — who wore her hot-pink dress better?
