Michelle Obama gave another nod to New York fashion on Thursday night as Sen. Barack Obama accepted his nomination in Denver.

 
The potential First Lady chose to wear a dress designed by Thakoon Panichgul. The floral Radzimir kimono dress, part of Thakoon's pre-spring 2009 collection, once again signals Michelle Obama has no qualms about breaking with presidential tradition, opting to wear a dress by a young New York designer to her husband's most important speech so far.

Jill Biden, meanwhile, opted to wear a dress and red jacket by Kay Unger.
