Michelle Obama reportedly wore a beautiful forest green Azzedine Alaia outfit for the 2014 State of the Union Tuesday night. The textured dress included a wide black belt and matching cropped jacket.

FLOTUS has worn designs by the Paris legend multiple times in the past, and recently recycled the purple dress she first wore in 2009 during an interview with Oprah. The decision to wear a non-American designer to the State of the Union raised some eyebrows, with viewers commenting on Twitter about how the choice was a surprising one for such an occasion. (Similar comments surrounded FLOTUS's decision to wear a red Alexander McQueen gown to a 2009 White House state dinner honoring Chinese President Hu Jintao, though fashion reporters were quick to mention that she wore the dress on the one year anniversary of the British designer's death.)

The selection also prompted some serious Clueless nostalgia, of which we are always a fan! Are you a fan of the ensemble? Vote in our poll below!
