Ok, what were they thinking? When they finally revealed Michelle Obama's wax figure this week, she's wearing a belted red dress inspired by the purple Maria Pinto she donned on the campaign trail. We asked our snoopy Online Fashion Editor, Michelle Madhok, at, what was up:

When they announced that the First Lady would be eternally bound in wax, I had hoped they would put her in an exact replica of one of the style icon's memorable outfits. Hmm, something's fishy here.

Regardless, the frock itself is classy, and if you'd like to replicate the look, pair this D&G Tank Dress ($295) with a black woven belt ($89).
