Prabal Gurung floral dress and matching coat
We knew Michelle Obama's Easter getup (center) looked familiar. She wore the same dress when hosting former President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush at the White House in June 2012 (right), and to the Smithsonian National Museum of American History in March 2010 (left). Prabal Gurung may be a fairly well-known designer now, after his recent Target collaboration sold out immediately, but he can thank Michelle Obama for putting him on the map back in 2010.

If Michelle Obama's Prabal Gurung Easter outfit looks familiar, you're right. The black and white, silk twill gazar dress with a brush-painted rose print is one of the first lady's favorites. In fact, we recall two other public occasions where the FLOTUS has worn the off-the-shoulder frock. She loves shopping her closet even for major events, unlike many celebrities who feel they can't be seen in the same dress twice. Obama's most oft-worn pieces aren't all designer garments either-she's also obsessed with items from affordable shops like Target and Talbots. In recognition of her recent wardrobe recycling, we're round up Obama's most memorable outfit repeats. Let us know which ensemble you like the best. By Joanna Douglas, Senior Fashion and Beauty Editor
