Election night was, in more ways than one, a night of returns: The Obamas to the White House and the FLOTUS to designer Micheal Kors. The first lady stepped onstage in a burgundy brocade Michael Kors shift dress that she’s worn twice before (to the 2010 Medal of Honor ceremony at the the White House and to a 2009 party).

Her look was another from her campaign-trail dossier of affordable style by American designers.

Sasha and Malia also made a style statment on election night with their brightly colored A-line skirts. Tween moms across the country surely took note.

Obama wasn’t alone in wearing a dress in the color-family of the season. Ann Romney wore a simple, red boatneck dress for her Election Night appearance.
