Let the (sartorial) debate begin!
Both Michelle Obama and Ann Romney donned bright pink looks for Tuesday night's presidential, Town Hall-style debate at Long Island's Hofstra University. (A nod to Breast Cancer Awareness month, perhaps?)
Obama, 48, donned a shift dress and cropped jacket by Michael Kors, while Romney, 63, opted for a fitted, textured short-sleeved number, which she accessorized with a beaded green necklace. (No word yet on who made Romney's look, although she often turns to American designer Alfred Fiandaca to dress her for big events.)
During the first presidential debate, which took place on October 3, both women stuck to relatively conservative (and patriotic) colors and cuts -- Mitt's love sported a white, two-piece skirt suit and pearls, while Barack's wife recycled a favorite bright blue Preen dress and jacket.
