Michelle Obama has no clue about what it takes to EARN $10,000. For many of us mortals, it can take 3 months or more to earn that much before taxes. Even longer when you consider how long it takes to save that much money post tax.
First Lady Michelle Obama impressed fashion experts and amateurs alike with her inaugural outfit Monday morning created by New York-based designer Thom Browne, mostly known for his menswear collections.
The First Lady wore a navy silk jacquard coat and dress outfit in a checked pattern specially designed for her.
“I wanted ‘tailored’ for her. For me, she stands for strength and confidence, and that’s what I wanted to design for her,” Browne told the Associated Press about his creation for the First Lady’s inaugural dress.
According to the designer, the outfit was inspired by a men’s silk tie. It is unclear what the cost of the outfit was, but it could likely be at least $10,000, according to Enstars’ estimates. However, the actual price has not been confirmed and there is no word yet on whether the dress and coat outfit will be rolled out for customers.
