Michelle Obama knows fashion.
From her elegant white dress for the cover of Vogue to the sparkling gold chain mail ballgown she wore for her final state dinner, our beloved FLOTUS completely owns each and every look with confidence and class.
Michelle is easily one of the best-dressed humans to ever step foot in the White House, but she really turns up the heat during the cold winter months. Michelle's holiday attire is never short of amazing, and following her style over the past eight years has, truthfully, been a gift to us.
Here are 11 of Michelle Obama's best holiday looks over the years.
For Christmas 2009 — the Obamas' first Christmas in the White House — Michelle opted for a long, bright purple gown.
Check out how sharp (and young!) our "new" President and First Lady look.
The following year, Michelle kept her slicked-back hairdo but swapped out her purple gown for this elegant number.
2010 was clearly a good year for Mrs. Obama.
The FLOTUS arrived in this blue dazzler in 2011 for the Hanukkah reception in the Grand Foyer of the White House.
She *dazzled* for eight days and eight nights.
Michelle spoke onstage at the 2012 TNT "Christmas in Washington" special wearing a short dress with a funky gold belt.

She looked sleek in this black-and-gold dress for the 2014 "Christmas in Washington" special.
But can we take a moment to also check out Malia and Sasha's outfits? Those adorable velvet mini dresses — yes, please! These sisters are definitely taking style notes from Mom.
Michelle's icy gown for the 2014 Kennedy Center Honors Gala was absolutely incredible.
Michelle wore this festive dress to unveil the 2016 White House holiday decorations. This fun look officially marks the end to an era.

Thank you for nearly a decade of wonderful winter gowns.
