Tuesday evening might have been President Barack Obama’s big night with his final State of the Union address, but someone else on the Hill stole the show. All eyes were on First Lady Michelle Obama and her ultra-chic yellow dress.

Michelle brightened up the House of Representatives gallery, wearing a sunny marigold Narciso Rodriguez dress. The sleeveless, textured wool crepe midi dress, which is currently sold out at Neiman Marcus, retailed for $2,095.
The 51-year-old First Lady has famously worn the American fashion designer’s designs before. On the night her husband was elected the 44th President of the United States back in 2008, the mom-of-two donned a sheath dress by the designer for the newly-elected President's victory speech at Chicago's Grant Park.

To close his final report to the nation on January 12, President Obama hit a Friday Night Lights tone saying, “[America] That's the country we love. Clear-eyed. Big-hearted. Optimistic that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word. That's what makes me so hopeful about our future. Because of you. I believe in you. That's why I stand here confident that the State of our Union is strong."
The president’s speech certainly struck a chord with several celebrities with them tweeting out support. Scroll below to see the tweets and see which famous names attended the historic address.
