Saving the best for last, are we?

The world watched as President Obama delivered his final State of the Union address Tuesday night. But most importantly (if you ask us), the night marked Michelle Obama's last appearance as acting first lady at the event.  

Well, FLOTUS did not disappoint for her grand finale. Dressed to the nines in an orange/yellow (on sale!) Narciso Rodriguez dress and a purple coat with her bangs side-swept, she looked as bold and as beautiful as ever. 

It's a trendy departure from last year's smart Michael Kors suit, which was affectionately recognized from "The Good Wife" and previous White House events.

 Her final look got us thinking about all of her past, stellar SOTU picks from over the years. There was that beautiful, sparkling Jason Wu number, that cobalt blue dress by Barbara Tfank and many gorgeous looks in between, including the very first Narciso Rodriguez look in 2009 (when Obama's speech wasn't yet technically considered to be a State of the Union address).

Take a walk down memory lane below, and excuse us while we bask in this final, fabulous, fashionable moment.
