Michelle Obama Steals the Spotlight in a Marigold Narciso Rodriguez Dress at State of the Union Address

01/12/2016 at 10:16 PM ET

Michelle Obama is going out with a bang for her final State of the Union appearance.

The First Lady stole the style spotlight in a yellow-orange wool crepe dress by Narciso Rodriguez at the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday.

All eyes were on Obama, 51, when she entered her box in the House of Representatives gallery, receiving a warm welcome from dignitaries and politicians.

And many fans online took to Twitter to applaud FLOTUS’ stunning orange ensemble. Comedian Charlamagne tha God tweeted with praise, “First Lady Michelle Obama out there looking like a delicious piece of Orange Starburst.”

While one follower wrote, “Has @MichelleObama ever looked more fierce than she does tonight?” We totally agree!

Fittingly, Narciso Rodriguez was also the designer behind her 2008 election night dress. Last year, Obama wore a grey Michael Kors suit channeling actress Julianna Marguiles  from The Good Wife.

And Obama’s bold SOTU dress was such a hit that it sold out instantly online!

Jeez the State of the Union address is not a fashion show!!! Can’t wait until they are out of the White House

She looked a mess…what a shame the first lady cannot dress the part. It embarrassed me to see her.

I thought she looked like a tranny..as joan said!

To Jude – can you imagine Mrs. Trump dressing the part? No? Never.

Could no agree more about the fashion show comment. This world is completely backwards

Don’t understand the bare arms. It is WINTER, and her arms are not all that. She just can’t seem to cover them. Ever. Her and Hoda Kotb. Enough already with the 12 months out of the year bare arms. Can’t wait for class in the White House. Will it EVER happen again?

Fabulous as always! Only small people with small minds living A small life in a small world would dare comment negatively on her appearance or the work she’s done as FLOTUS. If you find yourself hating on her hard, it’s about your failures not her. Rock on FLOTUS!

Mingo on

She looked really good. I hate those gathered waist skirts on her – this look was so sleek. Lovely her hair too.

She looked absolutely amazing. In the words of my best friend Ray Charles can see it and Stevie doesn’t have to wonder. The FLOTUS looked flawless.
