It’s too soon to say which candidate will be our next president, but one thing is certain: No matter what happens, we are going to have one ultra-fashionable FLOTUS in the White House.

Need proof? Let’s take a look back at the most stunning sartorial choices Michelle Obama and Ann Romney made while on the campaign trail:

At the Democratic National Convention, Obama wowed the audience, not just with her speech, but also with her pink-and-blue brocade Tracy Reese A-line dress, which she teamed with rhubarb J. Crew pumps and a manicure that left her team “flooded with requests” from people asking about her blue-gray polish.

Romney, on the other hand, was all about ladylike creations by designers such as Reed Krakoff and Alfred Fiandaca. But the look we loved the most on her was the one she wore for the last presidential debate: an emerald-green-and-white floral-print Oscar de la Renta below-the-knee number. Tell us: Which of these two dresses gets your vote for the best campaign ensemble?
