Who is more stylish?
Michelle Obama wrapped up her speech at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, yesterday and, as much as we like to posture over her words, message and delivery; her outfit - let's face it - was never going to escape comment.
Not to mention the tune chosen to accompany her sashay onto the (freakishly intimidating) stage.
How did she fare? Pretty well, we think.
Four years ago, it was a floral Thakoon number - the pre-spring 2009 Radzimir Kimono dress - and the strains of Stevie Wonder's Isn't She Lovely.
This time round it is pink, alive with movement, shimmers in the light and - as Twitter users immediately frothed - made the most of those enviably taut arms.
Designed by New York-based Tracy Reese, the custom silk number was paired with shoes by Mrs Obama's go-to label, J Crew. That Reese is African American is, of course, no happy coincidence.
Cool as ever, the First Lady did what she does best - dominate the spotlight with charming confidence (while wearing blue nail polish).
And the accompanying song? Another Stevie Wonder hit, Signed, Sealed, Delivered. We couldn't have put it better ourselves.
But, being the American election race, this is no easy competition.
Less than a week ago, we saw Ann Romney deliver a less-than-perfect speech in an outfit that stole the RNC show.
Her look was pitch perfect, designed by red carpet king, Oscar de la Renta: crimson, a collar that framed her hair and neck and a pretty cinched waist left onlookers ticking their sartorial checklists.
It was a US$1950 slam dunk that left us wanting to see more of the blonde mother-of-four's indomitable nerve. And perhaps a little less of the gushing love talk.
The stage is set for fashion face-off: both women clearly have what it takes to go the distance. And with just two months to go until election day, they are both playing to win.
Round One: FLOTUS 1, WOTO (wife-of-the-opposition) 1.
