It’s freezing in Washington, D.C., in February.
But despite the chill, First Lady Michelle Obama is still exercising her constitutional fashion right to bare arms.
And she was bare-armed again last night when President Obama was addressing Congress for the first time.
"Oh my God," Cindi Leive, Glamour editor, e-mailed the New York Times last night. "The First Lady has bare arms in Congress, in February, at night!"
You can see Michelle Obama in the above video, wearing a slim, black V-neck sleeveless dress.
In recent years, she’s kept up her exercise regimen a few times a week — cardio and lifting weights, or doing Saturday training sessions with the same trainer who kept her husband in shape on the campaign trail.
Now her strong arms getting international attention as they slowly come to symbolize the inner strength of Americans, particularly American women.
Either that or Michelle is just a big fat Madonna copy cat.
What do you think of Michelle Obama’s bare arms?
Is it proper or disrespectful?
Is it admirable or shameless?
