While New York is descending into fashion week madness, things are going on as usual in the nation's capitol.

Michelle Obama is back in fall fashion stepping out in a warm rose Moschino bow front piquet swing jacket with matching skirt as hubby Pres. Obama addressed a joint Congress yesterday evening.

Mrs. O's bracelet sleeve-length jacket featured a twist on the classic with a bejeweled bow brooch (of course!) at the neck and fan pleating on the back. The matching skirt had comfortable kick-pleats built in as well.

After her summer shorts fiasco, we think this tailored fall look is suiting the First Lady just fine.

Sharing a box with Jill Biden-- who looked lovely herself in a ruffled navy top and cream skirt, Michelle was all smiles when chatting with the ladies seated next to her, including Vicki Kennedy, the wife of the late Senator Edward Kennedy.
