Forget about opposing reds and blues—at last night’s second presidential debate, both Michelle Obama and Ann Romney turned up in near-identical shades of screaming pink.

Was this a push for girl power in the vein of Elle Woods? Perhaps both are simply hoping for a rosy outcome at the polls. No matter what the duo’s motivation, we’re full fans of the hot hue and think both ladies looked great.
