Michelle Obama Masters Late-Night Style in Gold Turtleneck & Strappy Sandals on ‘Stephen Colbert’

Michelle Obama was dressed to impress for her latest talk show appearance.

The former first lady stopped by the CBS studios in New York to talk about her new book, “The Light We Carry,” on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” yesterday. She was clad in a gold top and strappy heels. “It’s sparkly! It’s late night,” she described her outfit.

For her interview, Obama wore a sequined gold turtleneck. The top was tucked into khaki-colored, high-waisted and pleated trousers that featured a wide-leg design.

Adding some oomph to her look, the public figure strapped into tan sandal heels with a sleek finish and thick secure straps. The 3 to 4-inch heels elevated her silhouette. The shoe, along with its more colorful counterparts, is a closet staple for many thanks to its versatility.
