Rogers also hung out with American Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour at a couple of the shows. But what about that short skirt?

Later that day, she switched into a pair of black slacks. Huffington Post reports that she complained it was "chilly." Where's that "flinty Chicago toughness" Obama spoke about?
