When Michelle Obama spoke after the White House's screening of Hidden Figures, we gasped. There she was, standing at the podium, wearing the most amazing power suit . . . ever. The Brandon Maxwell number looked polished yet fashion-forward on the First Lady, and it wasn't just its overlay design and lack of lapels that had us daydreaming. We also enjoyed the shoes she paired it with: pointed silver kitten heels — aka the world's most underestimated shoe.
We admittedly wrote off the style years ago, debating the point of such a teeny tiny boost. But seeing Michelle wear them, we reconsidered. Perhaps she went the kitten heel route because they're the most comfortable yet elevated option for events, and when you're standing for long periods of time, comfort is key.
Read on to get a better look at Michelle's — shoppable! — look in full. Then pick up a pair of kitten heels and embrace the trend pre-holidays.
