This is our favorite fashion look of 2018

Not many people can pull off a sparkly boot with elegance and grace. And when they're thigh-high level, welp, that list becomes even shorter.

BUT when former first lady (and forever first in our hearts) Michelle Obama walked out onto the stage at Barclays Center last night in head-to-toe Balenciaga, the world stopped. Not only did she stun in a floor-length yellow silk wrap dress with a high slit, but she was also donning the most gloriously sparkly, holographic, literally perfect thigh-high boots, solidifying her reign as a fashion icon.

With the holidays just around the corner, there's really no more appropriate shoe in existence to be worn. Let's take another look:

Fabulous.

Has this epic display of sparkle marked the end of the Balenciaga Triple S Sneaker craze, and the beginning of the brand's sparkly, really tall boot movement? We sure hope so.

For now, we formally declare Michelle Obama the Best Dressed Person of 2018 (and, like, ever). The end.
