    To fashionistas, Tuesday's presidential win means more than a second term for President Barack Obama. It means another four years of Michelle Obama style.

    Just as she did in 2008, the first lady created buzz this Election Night for the gown she wore during her husband's acceptance speech. Her silk chine Michael Kors dress was lauded not only for its fashionable value, but also for its longevity: the FLOTUS wore the same piece twice before.

    Style headlines are nothing new for Michelle Obama.

    She vowed four years ago in Chicago's Grant Park with a black-and-red Narciso Rodriguez sheath and stole the show at this year's Democratic National Convention with a pink and blue brocade dress by Tracy Reese.

    Vintage brooches, bargain accessories and all manner of cardigans have become part of her continuous style harnessed into tasteful day dresses, stunning gowns and admirable casual looks.

    Names like Jason Wu and Isabel Toledo have become more accessible under her watch, and brands from J.Crew to H&M and even Target have been championed.

    What's next for this style maven? 

    We have another four years to find out.
