We haven’t seen much of Michelle Obama since she and former President Barack Obama left the White House in January.

But every time the former first lady has stepped out in public, she’s worn on-trend outfits. On a recent trip to Italy with friends, she was all about the slides trend. At her appearance at the 2017 ESPYs on Wednesday night, her look did not disappoint. She opted for an asymmetrical cut-out dress by Cushnie et Ochs and a pair of asymmetrical patent leather pumps by Gianvito Rossi.

We didn’t see Obama wear Gianvito Rossi much while in the White House — she most often opted for Jimmy Choo heels. But now that she’s a civilian, she’s clearly embracing fashion trends more and more. Her look was finished with script earrings a root ring by American jeweler Jennifer Fisher.

Obama was on hand at the ESPYs to honor the late Eunice Kennedy Shriver with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.
